    Morning Rock

    Nice tech ride in the Prescott Dells this am. It is just starting to get pleasantly cool up here.

    Waaaay to many photos of moi, but look at the scenery!



    Just below Willow Dam









    This is the result of blowing your wad climbing waaay STIL slick rock.












    We did this next section a bunch of times with a couple different lines. It requires careful braking, but isn't really that bad.

    Dude, it was nice this morning. The Mrs' parents have a cabin in Highland Pines and I was there wishing I could've brought my bike. 63 when we left at 9ish.

    I've been looking through my old copy of Fat Tire and saw Granite Basin is minutes from their place. Wanna try running out there and the Spruce Mountain trail. Pretty soon I'll get up there with time to ride...

    in a few of the pics, you dont see the bike at first,, and then you suddenly see it and you realize the whole scope of the size of the area

    Erik and Chris, nice job on the psick rock. Way too gnar gnar for me, the penalty for failure is off the charts.

    E: Beautiful shots. It appears you forgot the suspension on your bike, though ...

    Imposter!

    OK, who is riding your bike?

    Baggies?

    No Home depot gloves?

    Is this a stunt double?
    What the EFF is "All MOUNTAIN"???

    LOL. Good eye aqua. I didn't even catch that.

    From the pools in the first pic... it looks like you've had some rain. Wow. Sooo many lines to explore out there. Gotta get back.

    Is the whole trail laid out with the white dots? Kind of reminds me of Gooseberry Mesa a little.

    Yes, Chris has been working his butt off. There is even a 30ish foot wood bridge that was put in 2 weeks ago .
