At the start my friend asked do you think this will be the last summer ride or the first snow ride. Turns out it was both:

As soon as we gained a little elevation the gravel/mud/dirt turned to this:

If you gotta do a trail repair, at least look good doing it:

So many rivers I got to cross:

Plenty of climbing too:
