    One more ride...

    Before the long drive home. The goal was to be on the road before 12 pm so we just did a quick Rustler-Mary's-Horsethief loop. Only 1 flat (Imp flatted on the same ledge I flatted on). Gorgeous day, blue skies, temps warming by the minute... Enjoy the pics...
    Pic 1- 8am-not a cloud and we had the trailhead to ourselves
    Pic 2- RRB on the climb up to Mary's
    Pic 3- the drop into Horsethief. Imp rode about half of it...
    Pic 4- RRB practicing wheelie drops
    Pic 5- me on Horsethief messing around.
    If the forecast looks the way it is again for this weekend, it may mean another road trip...

    A few more shots from Dave's camera.

    Had an awsome two hour ride as discribed by Gary. Left the parking lot at the Kokopeli trail head, Fruita, CO just after 11am and had time to unload the rig at home before I picked up the wife at the airport at 8:40pm

    #1 Blue skys.
    #2 Is there any place you would rather be right now?
    #3 Gary was coming up to fast, couldn't get my finger out of the way.
    #4 Is there any place you would rather be right now?
    #5 Drop in to Horsethief from a distance. As you can see the top half is the easy part. The top part is still steaper than it looks, a ridge kind of hides the elevation of the middle of the trail.

    Dumb question of the afternoon before I leave for the gym....

    These ledges you folks ride up on....

    Depending on the height of said ledge...do you "pop" your front wheel onto it or do you just ride onto it?

    We had to pull up pretty hard for a couple of them.

    I have been practicing/learning, and am still very amateur, but found it necesarry to learn how to pop my front wheel up onto the ledge, especially the bigger ones. This really is the only option unless you think a nice endo is a good time.
    Whenever I haul a$$ I have to take two trips.
