Carl Shipman was a good man
Hit up some Cochiti the other day with A and we had a spectacular ride. Parked the ol 240 at the apple orchard. Our route took us up Dome rd to Carl Shipman down to Cochiti canyon then up Alamos tr. then took that trail that cuts over to killer switchbacks then took that down to medio dia and descended that back down to cochiti canyon and out. I never get bored of Cochiti I hope I never will. Anthony and I both had cameras so his are mixed in with mine. I might just have to hit up Cochiti this weekend.
The climb up Dome rd. is a road but the scenery makes up for the lack of singletrack.

Then we climbed Alamos trail from under to above the tent rocks
After the climb we hit that sweet trail that goes over to killer switchbacks
Along the way we stopped for some lovely snacks in the meadow
It is hard to tell but through out the whole ride we got rain on and off.
We even had to stop on our way up Alamos trail to wait out a downpour
What is in your audio player? I am listening to Band Of Horses: The Great Salt Lake on Pandora.
There is now snow up on the mountain. I did a ride up to Glorieta last weekend and there was a couple inches of snow up top.
