    Dang Cholla you jumped on this one early!!

    I was back in my hometown of Allentown, PA over the weekend and managed a quick ride on some local goods. It was a welcome change of pace & I was able to coax a buddy of mine to finally dust of his bike & RIDE!! Oh, and I borrowed a Superfly 29er from another buddy, I think I'm ready to upgrade to the 29er fold...

    From PA - Oct. '11


    Ahhh, the aromas of autumn....
    From PA - Oct. '11


    Some nice trailwork has been done, big S-turn berms on this descent
    From PA - Oct. '11


    Color coded trail system, simple effective.
    From PA - Oct. '11


    Messin' around post-ride
    From PA - Oct. '11


    If you ever find yourself in search of a ride in the Lehigh Valley area of eastern PA, look up Salisbury (Walking Purchase Park) it's worth a visit. My next trip back east will include a road trip to the trails out at Raystown Lake.

    Dang Durtgurl, I've been trying to talk myself outa the 10-24, but you keep posting these super-wides and it gets more and more difficult. Those are a whole lotta fun. The berm shot up top, I like that a lot.

    The magnitude of weirdness.

    Early morning out at Pyramid Peak area. Just doin' some rock playin'





    This ended ok, at this point though, I didn't think it would.



    On the way back to the truck, I spy a pile of junk in the desert. This is where the weird part of this story comes in. At first glance, it was a pile of boards, red oxide paint and well aged, like sideboards from a truck. But there was some other bits of mystery lying around, so grab the brakes and wander over. Poking through the pile, I spy this mask.



    A Halloween mask, and being a good LOTR fan, it’s a pretty good image of an Uruk-hai. It’s been in the sun awhile, so we put it up on a cactus. That way, others could enjoy it as well. Now, a mask, that’s not so weird, I mean, by itself maybe a curiosity, but not really weird. It gets weird when you add in a roll of flowered wallpaper, some little girls shoes, slippers,



    and, the real clincher, a cookbook whose pages are weathered open to “Delightful Mincemeat”. I mean, add all that randomness together and that is a pretty large magnitude of weird.

    The Tamron 10-24mm? My Dad is about to buy that lens for his Canons so I look forward to borrowing it to try on my T3i. I love my Rokinon 8mm fisheye but do wish it was faster for those low-light shots and that it was not completely manual for those shots on the fly. I have to think too hard to get the good photos. So I look forward to borrowing the 10-24 (not faster, but it is not manual) to see if it's one step closer to perfect. Plus, there might be times I don't want such an extreme fisheye look. I got my eye on a Canon 10-22 or the Canon 15 prime. hmmmm.... I can see how this photography might get more expensive than biking!!

    And I love your strange discoveries in the desert! The mask is great

    Thanks on the discoveries, that is part of the fun of riding through the desert.

    I'm shootin' an old Nikon D40, so I need the motor in the lens. Tamron and Sigma are a little slower on the AF, so looking at the Nikon glass. I've rented it, and wow is it fun, but Ouch, the price, and with the floods in Thailand, that'll make the price go higher.

    I agree on the thinking part using the super wides, that is work to compose, it isn't a natural to pre-visualize like the teles in landscapes.

    Pics were taken with an 8mm fisheye. I hope to get some more on SoMo tomorrow as I tag along on Gnargnar shuttles. This lens definitely performs better out in the daylight. I've always loved taking pics of all you goobers, but getting a real camera is taking this to new levels of fun for the nerd in me. Critiques (good and bad) are welcome!

    That WA lens is pretty impressive, nice shots!

    Here's that saguaro along Bell Pass Trail with a Halloween scarecrow look.

    Got Monday off so I took spin up around the towers on SoMo.






    National grom BV to Telegraph is really lots of fun. And I could do it all from my house!
