"It's easy to get buried in the past"

"....When you try to make a good thing last."

One of my last rides before the snow and shoulder surgery took me out of the game was at the lovely Cerrillos Hills State Park trails. These trails are a fun option when the stuff closer to the mountain are buried in snow. You head down the Turquoise trail to get to Cerrillos which is just north of Madrid. A lot of this area is here because of the turquoise and lead they mined from here and I think still do on a couple private claims to this day.

This is a fun descent until you can't really ride anymore.....

It was a great last ride for me. I am now in my 5th week of post surgery no riding blues. At least I am on the downslope of the rehab. This past weekend Autumn and Ella and I hiked the Chamisa loop, It was great finally getting back into the woods even if it was without a bike.

What is in your audio player? I have the new Beach House album Teen Dream in mine. Baltimore throwing it down once again.

I can't wait til spring........

Been there. Lived thru shoulder surgery, then spin class and found bike commuting and then got back on dirt so it wasn't all bad.
Good luck.

You picked a good time for the surgery. With all the snow we are getting it's going to be a long time before anything is ridable. looking foreword to spring and nice NM singletrack. Heal fast and strong.
