Since hitting Scappoose for the first time on New Year's Day I've been dying to get back out there again, especially with a new bike in the house that's been taunting me since I brought it home Wednesday. It was cold, wet and nasty but it was a fun couple of hours.

Since today was a get acquainted ride and the light was so nice I spent as much time walking around taking photos as I did riding...or at least trying to ride. Either it was really slippery out there today or I'm a bigger gimp than I thought.

I wish I could rewire the part of my brain that isn't cool with going downhill on slippery, muddy trails. The thought of riding something like this quite frankly scares the bejeezus out of me.

Random object #1. An old barbeque I think? Kinda strange running across stuff like this out in the middle of nowhere.

I'm glad I didn't come out alone my first time but I wish I'd marked all the trails we rode on my gps. I found a couple of them again this time but not everything. The Maze is a lot of fun, Dead Dog not so much as wet as it was today.

Random object #2. Even stranger than the old barbeque. I think this is on Dead Dog?

This mountain biking thing is pretty cool.
