    Mixed conditions today. It was about 37 degrees. A beautiful day in the woods. Started out on NW1. After that stayed on the fire roads. All kinds of snow. The hard pack where people had skied wasn't too bad, but it was hard steering in the soft stuff. Overall a lot of work riding today. At least I came home in one piece.Next weekend is suppose to be even warmer.

    Thats a good way to sescribe it a mixed bag.
    I also was at the mOOn today.
    Started off on Natures Way 1, that was an absolute blast it is so packed down, then 8 out to the split by Ledgeview, up the service road to the campground, through the campground, back up the service road, T-Rex 1, all of 8, and out Natures Way 1.
    Man what a workout.

    Good job!

    This Wednesday, 1/16/13

    XC Skiing is pretty much finished, till more snow appears!
    ^^^^^^^^cancel that statement^^^^^^^^
    XC skiing is back due to more snow overnight!

    Mt biking, still possible... slushy, wet, heavy snow good for cleaning tires!

    Updated... 1/16/13 Wednesday @ 12:00 Noon.

    Got in a good ski, had the park all to myself. Warm snow really tried to attach itself to the bottom of the skis had to rewax once on lap two around the fields!

    Fantastic day. Conditions were perfect.
    Thorny, Big Blue, Twister, Buddy's, Watkins Loop, Skinny, Plan B,8, Ledgeview, Deacon, NW2, What.
    Two and a half hours and 7 miles of pure bliss.
    First time on Deacon and it's such a great rockfest. I like how you can keep your speed up on it.
    Probably last ride for a while as I'm going to Colorado Springs for about 8 weeks.
    See you in the spring.

SR2 to Deacon, Ledgeview, TTS, 8, SR2 a shorter trials fun play ride with lots of time spent hopping on snow covered stuff, then back out on the lake! Danny hauled in a nice Big Trout!

    Good job!

    It's not very often I un-weight a rock...
    ...and it makes a scuffing sound, almost on me head

    Best part of being out on the ice hanging with each other talking with Ray And Stevie when the sun heated the ice and it began to sag then gave off a big crack... we scattered like rabbits...LOL

    First rule of book club, don't stand next to each other talking, on 2 inch thick snow covered ice on a sunny day

    My brother came up from Millersville for the day,so we hiked the Moon today.
    I can't find the link for the map. Can someone help me out? Also, do the colors of the trails on the map have any significance?

    Thanks

    Here ya go:

    At one time the old park commission had marks on trees from the really old trail system that was comprised of the service roads. Colors mean nothing! Ignore the mini arrows and dots, that was marked from a ride we did. Trails are not exact locations or GPSed just a representation of the area they occupy.

    I have a feeling you will be reviewing this map at 15,000 feet while on the flight to Colorado...LOL

    Is the usual 6 pm ride happening? If so I suggest studded tires.

    Good job!

    Today 2/2/13 the Ground Hog was very scared...
    ...the SSer was prowling trails at da mOOn!

    But first... the trout are in the lake! WCO Cummings and the Friends of Moon Lake fishermen aided in getting the nice stocking into the lake. With holes drilled the fishing commenced fast!

    Todays ride started from the Marina after a visit with friends ice fishing, had to find a hill to climb. Wind was much calmer than yesterday at trout stocking where a crisp 30MPH wind full of snow squalls ripped across the lake.

    Mo-Zee/Peek-A-Boo, Buddys, Slide, Watkins, Skinnys, Eagle, with all the leaves off the trees one can identify random objects to ride trials on. Spent an hour riding trials around Eagle on big rocks and fallen logs, very quiet area to play, yet close enough to the frozen lake to provide a thrill. I was able to find lots of flowing water even with the really cold temps! There was enough snow on the lake to allow riding without studs as long as you didn't lean too hard!

    Continued to Deacon, tough trail on a SSer with the light snow covered rocks secretly hiding to throw off any good line selections, then SR2 back to Marina.

    Pics are random...
