Dominic came from Bodymore, Murderland for a vacation with his wife to Santa Fe. While he was here we met up for a ride. As long as I have known Dom he has ridden a 700c fixed gear bike with drops. I tried to get him a fixed gear bike to ride while he was here but I failed to do so. I got him a full carbon Commencal skin. This bike is the antithesis of what he normally rides. He ended up loving it though. So alls well that ends well. I picked him up at his posh digs and drove up to nuns corner for some fun up there.

It was great seeing him and Miranda. Hope they come back for another visit.

After we got done with the lovelyness that is Chamisa/sidewinder We drove down to the Dale Ball trails so that Dom could get a taste of our "in town" trails.

This trail is wilderness so no bikes. I have wanted to hke it though. I believe it goes to the Stone Lions which is a shrine wth something to do with a hunting ritual. I have wanted to go do this hike but didn't know if this trail head off of Dome road was the right one. If anyone of of the few people that see this know this hike let me know.
Getting to the Carl Shipman trail
Carl Shipman was rather washed out
Some macro love
Coming around the base of some sweet tent rocks as we begin the long climb up Alamosa trail
I wonder if Alamosa trail will be maintained
this trail does afford some nice views
This looks like a nice spot for a snack
One of my favorite trails on this ride is the never ending meadow that takes you over from Alamosa trail to killer switchbacks

What is in your audio player? I have the soundtrack for Sprout in mine. Quite nice. Especially when you are dying to hit some waves like i am. The band has Money Mark, Tommy Guerro and Jack johnson among others.
