    1) Looking down the Silver Creek canyon from Continental Divide south of Marshall Pass.
    2) Silver Creek Trail about a mile off the divide. That one at sunrise after riding through the night up to Marshall, out and back on Crest Trail.
    3) Rainbow Trail Near Highway 285.

    Here's one from about 3 hours before 2) (the sunrise one) I took it with self-timer while my friend napped in the woods. Notice my intelligent expression. It's 4 AM, do you know where your red bull is?

    I only know one person to have done that... and it was on a single speed. And he rode back down it.

    I did this back in about '95 when I didn't know any better. It was brutal, but still fun. Not nearly as fun as when I rode the normal direction 3 years later...

    I haven't had much chance recently to feel that way on a ride. Although, I did manage to get out on the White Rim with the family last weekend. It was at the four year old and six year old pace, but it was awesome.

    Not sure what it was called. We looped a lot of trails near Keystone that day.
