    I can see the top of a 13'er from out back of my house and there's huge patches of bare rock up there, very thin snow cover. No real measurable snow has fallen up here in a week, and it's been in the 60's. I hit some snow in the shade this past Sunday on a rarely used trail by my house, but for the most part, I'm thinking you will be good until Monday, when the next storm is due.

    Thanks.

    What's up on those fires? Would it be cool to ride up there this weekend?

    I don't think Silver Creek will be open from the Georgetown end -- yesterday they had the roads blocked for the fire crews. You could probably get to it from the east end and ride most of the way out to the fire area, which was right above the lake, but there's no way to know what you'll find. It probably needs some clean-up work, at minimum. And you'd also have to ride up the jeep roads from Dumont to access it, which aren't really much fun - lots of hike-a-bike.

    On the bright side, I hear the Pav Point / FAT stuff is actually clear enough to ride. We'll be up there early tomorrow to do some recon hiking, I'll report back after that.

    Well that's excellent news.

    Hey, if you all need help rebuilding stuff on Silver Creek, give a hollar. I'm positively worthless when it comes to construction or anything close to it, but I can pitch in for materials and certainly beers.

    Sure thing. I am hoping (fingers crossed) that it will just be a matter of clearing deadfall and raking. I plan to try to ride that route back to my house tomorrow after we hike, so I will post afterwards.

    Just hit up....

    Jamestown loop/ Gold lake area. Great except for a little ice on the 2115 alley coming back. You could go higher for sure.

    Excellent. Thanks much!



    We did the same route you took t and I on, but as you can see, I got lost a little after the bridges on Silverdale Luckily, finally did find the trail and finished it proper.

    So, did you know that the Turn of Mild Intestinal Distress is, now, uh ... gone?

    Yup. Tossed over the side best I could tell.

    The lower ramps are there, but, well, unattached.

    Cripes, I'm sorry to be the beared of bad news. I figured you knew, and was *hoping* maybe you guys were just working on a rebuild or something.

    When we were on the singletrack I told the guys I was riding with to watch out for the ramp, I mean, check it out before just bombing through it, and by the time I got where they were stopped there was no ramp. The two jolly roger forks were still there, off to the side, so I was sure we were at the same spot. Just no ramp. I didn't even see the thing until one of the guys pointed it out, way down the hill.

    Crap. I'm really sorry.

    That completely sucks.

    Yeah, kinda does suck. Guess we'll just need to rebuild it in a more permanent way -- steel posts embedded in the ground with QuickCrete, I think. I felt like it needed more camber anyway. But it is very annoying -- that section is just going to wash out and become dangerous without some kind of ramp on it. Whoever took it out clearly doesn't know spit about erosion control -- it's rideable without the ramp, but that soil is so soft and loose, it just can't withstand the skidding. Gotta be fixed.

    Sad but lower fraser trails in WP are in great shape

    Yep, there today and it was sad how little snow there was. Nice trails though! Tacky for sure!

    It didn't feel that cold, I promise. I think maybe the GPS was screwy. I was in shorts and a light jacket and perfectly comfortable.

    Re: trail naming, that does bring up something I thought of yesterday while riding up there. MMD, those trails are so gorgeous they deserve proper signage, when you guys get to that point. AJ's dad is quite the metal worker and could likely be persuaded into genning up some really cool stuff for the cause. You know, something arty yet discreet.
