    winter brown giving blues need green

    Spare a pic? Some photos of greener days on the trails sure would help a guy out right now. There have been posts recently with some nice shots of our local trails looking bit more lush, lets see 'em again! Got a winter / summer contrast? Doesn't even have to be a local trail.
    The Colorado winter browns are getting me down, thankfully March is just around the corner. I can make it till spring. I can make it till spring. I can make it till spring.
    I don't have any contribute from work so I borrowed this from the www.

    Colorado green. There's a joke here somewhere..

    Check out http://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/featu...4868/sspomer,2 for some warm, sunny stoke. Get ready to be jealous though.

    This will probably be the first place we'll all get to get good long rides in.

    It's already getting warmer. The daylight savings celebration happens soon!! Now if we can just get through the dreaded mud season we are home free.

    I stole these pictures from xcguy. They really show the difference between winter and spring.
    Thanks everyone who posted for getting me through a dark period in my life (dark brown).

    Three strikes and you're out! The first two shots are from a ride at Young Gulch outside Fort Collins.

    The remaining three I'm not willing to announce just yet, may be having a "guess the trail" style contest through the shop, and those shots may well be edition #1 of the contest. It isn't the easiest ride to guess, which is good, because certain people on this forum (OnBelayDave, Sgltrak, and others) seem to have ridden all of the obvious local trails....a lot. Can't make it too easy.
