Our day started at about 10:30 AM with six riders; Hank-Hank, Ima Klyde, Sasquatch, Albee, Dagooch, and yours truly. We proceeded up the pavement to warm up. At the yellow gate we got on to Boundary for our first taste of slippin-n-slidin on the trails. This took us to Zo's trail to lead in to Redline and Silvia Boulet. After this we crossed the main road to Sneaky to Cell Block and Riot. On up Foxglove Rd and we had to walk temporarily due to the snow depth/consistency. We were halted temporarily and spotted someone coming behind us, and it turns out to be ML with the Rocket Dog. (Hooray, there's a second SingleSpeeder!, I was the other) Onward we slogged through the snow, constantly grabbing at our wheels, occasionally stopping us and forcing a walk. On to Test-Tickle and Upper Love Connection to the main road, then on to Fungurl. Some of us cut it short and just went Around the Clock, but Gooch couldn't hear us holler after him and went on down Fungurl. (He said all he heard was his wheels going "crunch-scrunch" - h'mm, come to think of it that's all I heard all day). Albee went after Gooch, and at the bottom talked Gooch into Jiminy Cricket, where they say they encountered about 8-10" of snow. Meanwhile, the rest of us waited at Wine Bottle Jct, soaking up the sun that was now out. When Albee and Gooch showed up we went on to Sunset-Donsled-Intestinal Tract-Helpless, Sunset, finishing with Stumps Don't Win-Boundary to the road. This was a day to wimp out of some of the trails we would have usually done, since the snow added a workout multiplier effect.
Following are some pictures from the day, in order:
