    Woke up with 3 Sisters

    Over the weekend, I was tired of the mud on the lower front range trails, so I decided to hit Aldefer/3 sisters up in Evergreen (a ride inspired by the recent T.I.T.S. ride pics). My dilema: my son had baseball starting at 9:00 on Saturday ... No problem. Left the house early and had the wheels down and rolling by 5:40. As expected, I had the trails all to myself for a beautiful morning ride

    The sun was just starting to peek over the horizon as I got going.


    Wild Iris Loop is well named.


    Started off from the west lot for the Evergreen mountain climb.


    Even though it was early (and chilly), I had to stop at a mile into the climb to shed my outer layer. Things were absolutely peaceful in the woods at this hour.


    The views from the top of Evergreen Mtn. never disappoint! This beats a cup of coffee and the paper any day






    Found this little guy growing out of the rocks up top - pretty cool.


    After the views, I enjoyed ripping the descent - no pictures, was having way too much fun to stop. I crossed over to the north side of the park to check out the sisters...
    Here they can be seen from Brothers Lookout:


    After this, I looped in Sisters/Bearberry/Mt.Muhuly/ Homestead back to the west lot.
    Had time for one last shot at the bridge where Muhuly and Coneflower meet.


    Finished the ride in 2 hours and made it home with time to spare for the baseball game.
    Oh, the boys won and my son drove in 2 RBI's


    Cheers!

    Quick question, I'm 6'7" as well and looking for a new all mountain bike. As you probably know, its hard to find something that fits... As a tall guy, how do you like riding the enduro? If you were in the market again, any recommendations on bikes to take a look at or would you buy another enduro?

    You know, you can always take your coffee and paper up too the top.

    Nice pics, thanks for the pics. Gives me a mini-vacation from the office seeing those!

    Sweet pics! That's one of my favorite rides. Rode it early this morning, actually, and the conditions were amazing.
    I see you're drinking one percent. Is that because you think you're fat?
