    We got caught in the storm Wednesday at PP. It was crazy how fast it moved in, it was clear blue sky when we started. That hail hurt, tried to huury back to the truck but ended up taking shelter until it let up. This is a crappy picture from a wet cell phone but you can see how it was flooding.

    Lol, I was going to post up about how horrible the condition of some of the trails were. The OP is correct about the problems with the sand on some of the trails... It's almost not worth parking at the Paseo lot, yesterday I think I dismounted like 5 times on the way up due to all the washouts and sand.
    On a brighter note some of the trails were unaffected and there were some that seem more fun in an ungroomed techy kinda way with new exposed rock and rocks that were washed into the trails. So if your flying through your favorite spot be carefull because you might not know what is around the corner.

    Also I was wondering if anyone knows if there are any work days scheduled out there to repair the damage that was done?

    I can confirm Sand Creek course for Wednesday is all good--there was a section just South of the Council Bluffs road that was severely washed out but it looks like Nate (from the city) got in there and fixed all that section. It also looks like he's been out taking care of some other area's accessible by a front end loader as well.
