    50+ degrees has turned our 2 feet of snow into something that made our last ride/walk become known as "the big suck", but to find this on the back of one of our cars upon our return to the parking lot, just made that name seem so right (edited for the viewing public...) :lol:

    Flash flooding destroyed three bridges and damaged a couple of creek crossings on the Bicentennial National Trail, near my home on Oz.

    At the far side of this crossing a chasm big enough to hide a truck has been carved by the water. The trail has been rerouted in several places from native grasslands to suburban cycle paths.

    the thing we all need to remember is....no matter how muddy the trails get, in winter a frozen ride = no mud. I like not having to clean my bike and although I just froze my butt off riding, the post ride shower revives me. Thanks for all the great pics/posts!!

    Nah, it was back in December.

    I tried Huntington (my local) this afternoon. 3-4" of snow over seriously slick and glaxed over ice pack. Trumbull has some packed down stuff, and I hear maybe Sprain as well. Haven't been down there in quite a while though.

    MTBkitty, thank you Mate. Thank you for your nice comment.

    Yes, it is an HDR. When I took the shot, I accidentally left the camera's white balance set for tungsten illumination ... so I removed a heavy blue cast from the image, which has given the image a spacey feel.

    I hope you do visit Oz, I think you will find the place most unusual. There is lot's of people free space here ... enough space to swing two cats. One in each hand.

    LOL! Swing cats?! I know that has got to be a local (harmless) saying, but it just sounds so wrong!

    Way to go fixing the shot up! :thumbsup:

    I have a couple friends from Oz and they have nothing but good stuff to say about the land down under. One of them told me that kangaroos are some of the laziest you'll ever meet. And that koalas can be mean little boogers.

    ETA: bajamtnbkr that is awesome! Where is that? What time was it?

    Couldn't find anyone to ride with, so I went by myself. I ended up riding miles of singletrack without encountering a single other person, on private trails that normally would be popular on a non-rainy Sunday. Got back to town and there were plenty of mountain bikers either leaving or returning but I didn't see any in the hills.

    It's a little farther north, about 40 mi.SW of Boise, on the northern front of the Owyhees.
