    January thaw

    First post in the Passion forum.

    Temps in NE Ohio were in the upper 60's today after a snowy,cold spell. I headed down to Beaver Creek State Park to do some work my club (Rust Belt Revival Trail Coalition, an IMBA chapter) started this summer. The melting snow down in the valley made thick fog, and when the sun came out it was stunning.

    The task for the day - fix the top of this ramp.


    Leads down to a creek crossing.


    Beautiful.


    Best pic of the day. New trail to the right of the creek.

    Nice pics

    We have been so fortunate down here in the NC mountains to have had such a warm winter thus far. Loving today, woke up and put shorts and shorts sleeves on early this morning and was perfectly warm. Had a good ride and actually broke a sweat. Today was in the low 70's and tomorrow is supposed to be some of the same. Probably run a short ride tomorrow too.

    Very nice! I got in a January thaw ride myself today, but we had sunny skies in Iowa.

    The warm weather is torture here in SE Pennsylvania. It's in the 50's but between the melting snow and rain the trails are too muddy to ride.

    Nice fix on the trail. Looks very inviting. I went for a hike today in similar weather conditions in southern NY. The fog really does some interesting things with the light and creates a whole different atmosphere. Nice photos of the streams. Here's a photo I took today, that I kind of liked. On a clear day you can see for miles from that rock. Today, it just appears that you can walk off into the fog.

    I recognize that spot Steve The warmer weather was nice but unfortunately turned everything into a swamp. We really got spoiled last winter.
    No moss...
