    Middlefork Snoqualmie trail in Washington....wow.

    This trail is located about an hour out of Seattle. It's roughly 18 miles long if done in a loop and is one of the most beautiful trails anywhere. It's a river trail so it doesn't gain a ton of vert but it has some good flowy sections and definitely techy roots. Mountainbiking at it's finest.

    Thanks guys. Fortunately the guy that I rode with (in the pics) is a photogeek as well. What should have taken 5 hours of riding took about 7.5. Around every corner is a great photo...literally. We are blessed around here with amazing trails and terrain. This one is in the top ten.

    You are right. When we rode it, it was raining a bit and overcast. The entire place glowed. We kept yelling "photo op" so much that it was comical.

    Kevin,
    It's a canon 550D with a 28mm 2.8 lens. Fairly light and compact enough to stash in the Dakine pack.

    Nice work! You have a lot more patience than I do in post processing. Are you using an Ectachrome slide filter in PS?

    Yeah, I forgot that I had a CPL filter on as well. A bit of lightroom tweaking too.
