    Thanks again Nate! One of the best areas around. Nice pics, as usual... Years back a group of us did the Struggle and continued on the Middle Fork back to Sand Prairie. One of the best rides ever! Some of those pictures were painfully beautiful. OT, were you taking pictures on the Creampuff course this year?

    Great blog report, and those "J"trees are weird enough looking too.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....

    +1 on the report. That bend in the tree is called a "snow knee".

    Yeah, we talked about adding in the MF Willey Trail, but after those hikes, I was pretty spent, so it's probably best we didn't.

    Regarding The Puff, yeah, I was kind of the unofficial photog. I was really there to support my wife, Emily (who crushed it, taking 2nd in women!), but figured since I had my camera...
