    Moon Virgin ....

    .....Mike B. from up on the mountains first trip to the Moon...ever!!.....so we showed him the whole place other than the back side by the spillway.....conditions were really great....ground was still pretty frozen on any North, East, or West exposures.....a bit of mud in the usual southern exposures....

    The lake had a decent....

    ....layer of ice and snow making for a beautiful scene....."LedgeView" had the Christmas Spirit going.......Pike resevoir(or CeaseTown Resevoir).....could also be seen through the trees on "8"....frozen and solitary.....when riding on Twister a mini herd(6) of deer crossed our path.....one of our riders had a nasty fall on "8" at the ledge....slid the front wheel and went down to the low side....long way....he will have some massive bruising from that fall.....we crossed paths with SHoe, Joan, Moto, Lee, Canadien Chuck, and DirtRider Chuck once on the trails and at the "Deacon" fire......

    Finished up the ride with a.....

    .....visit down to Berwick's OneGuyBrewing..........the owner gave us a tour of the facility.....the "beer Garten"....looks like a fun place during the warm weather....nice view of the Susk from the pavillion.....the "album wall" was interesting .......do you remeber any of the artists, albums, and/or songs......took home a growler of the "Porter"...after trying a few pints of the "Atomic Punk IPA" and "Hondo".....as the sunset over the river ...took one more picture of the cooling towers from the east side of the river near Hellers orchards....

    He really liked it....has been trying to get over to the Moon with us but young kids kept his ticket full...until Saturday in December.....he'll be back.....the owner of OneGuyBrewing said he wasn't sure what he was going to do with the barrel...he had 2 of them on hand.
