    As always, great photos mAtt.

    What an awesome weekend, so happy I could take part.

    Here's a few shots from my new camera (the old one residing somewhere up on the Alpine Trail):

    Great pics. I didnt go, but going in August. What do you think of- Alpine Friday, Lawler/Hardesty, and the Middle Fork Shuttle Sunday with maybe a little Larison Rock/Creek thrown in?

    That would be getting your money's worth.

    Did you do the Middle Fork Shuttle? I was wondering if I should do MF on Fri or Sat, so I wont be wiped out on the drive home to PDX Sunday. Alpine or Tire Mtn one day and MF another is a given, but Im contemplating either the Lawler Hardesty ride, Bunchgrass, or Heckletooth the other day I have out there. Any advice?

    I am pretty sure the MF is Sold Out Friday and Saturday
    Bunchgrass is a BIG ride talk with people that done it before
    Thanks

    Yeah, I signed up for the Sunday MF, but there is always someone who doesn't show up, etc. so I believe I might be able to get on Fri or Sat. I've done Alpine before (Cream Puff), but wanted to do Tire Mtn, which Ive never done.

    Do Lawler/Hardesty on Fri or Sat. It is Hardesty only on Sunday and I MUCH prefer Lawler of the two. It is a double shuttle ride to get you to the ridge top for each trail.

    As ridden at MBO Lawler is 13.5 miles, 1350 ft climbing, 4060 descending.


    Hardesty: 7.5 mi, 1000 ft up, 3190 down.


    Middle Fork is not that hard a ride if you are in decent shape and take your time. 25 miles, 1300ft climbing, 3060ft descending. There is some hike-a-bike in the first 7 miles and ~40% of the climbing happens there.

    Lunch (supported) happens at 10.5 mi (flag #1).

    Bunchgrass requires the personal approval of the guide captain. ~27 miles, 4000ft climbing, 9000 ft descending, Some 40%+ grades, 5 mi of hike-a-bike up and down hill. Not for the weak or inexperienced.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
