    sourdough/Baptiste/Wapiti was great today

    I gambled on an inversion and won. Well, sort of. I kept the rain at bay and only got a little wet from the fog on the final descent. Great Monday!

    Sourdough was it's usual fast, swoopy and buff self.


    Beaver Res Road and Mt Audobon lookin tough


    It's not an "I rode Sourdough" post without this shot


    Sourdough = smooth and buttery


    A little bit of snow (4 drifts) on Baptiste/Wapiti


    Beaver Res road again, this time a little more fogged in


    Lots of water splashing over the spillway today


    back to the car and sunny again!


    There were about 4 or 5 logs over the trail between Camp Dick and Beaver Res Road. Sourdough was clear all the way to Baptiste/Wapiti. The B/W loop had about 4 of 5 downed trees, too. Not too bad! Not really any other bike tracks either. To top it all off, I saw no one. Ahhhh, just what the Dr. ordered.

    I rode there saturday, and saw a moose near the pond in pic #3. I was within 30 feet of her. She acted quite civil; no pitbull intervention was necessary.

    I rode from the south end up to Brainard road, and the last 1/4 mile was pretty snowed in, lots of postholing involved. I didn't go down the other side since it's all north facing as well. Hopefully this will be all gone in a week or so. Little Raven and upper SSV prob a little longer as well.

    Yeah, I wasn't riding Little Raven until early July last year. We'll be waiting a bit on Buchannan Pass, too. Brainard Lake Rd is the high point of all of Sourdough - you'll find the snowiest bits on either side of that road. Even if the snow melts soon, the high up stuff will be muddy for a bit, too. I'd give it a few more weeks for some of that, but that's totally a guess. The dirt was perfect today on everything I hit.
