    NTM - fifo

    With all this FIFO crap going on, I figured I would join the fun, that and bringing momma along gave me some time to slow down, ignore my Strava times( ), and take a few pics.

    About to drop down into the Canyon on the SE corner:




    And as opposed to the d-bag at trestle I just read about, if you bring your sweetheart to a trail she can handle, be patient, and take your time, you can get her smiling all morning:



    Just about perfect temps for riding at 5:15-6:30, love these long days

    Just behind the smiling rider is the drop into Cottonwood Canyon. There's a great place to sit there on the rocks and contemplate how nice it is to have open space for all to enjoy, not just the 1%.

    I was up there Sunday afternoon when it was extremely hot. A bunch of high school girls asked me where the water fall was. I said, "I believe its on the other side of the mesa. However, its probably dried up. I'm pretty sure its seasonal." I think they wanted to cool down in the water because they responded, "Well, do you know where there are some trees where we can find some shade?" I responded, "Nope. No trees. This is all there is up here." I thought that was pretty funny. It was pretty hot, but they appeared to have plenty of water.

    Would that comply with the new rules?

    There was another FIFO ride there this morning at NTM. It has been a long time since I have ridden that area. Fun little park, But that trail around the outside is busy. We must have stopped for at least 6 people and it was before 6 a.m.
