    Friday thread topic: STEEP?

    So in the spirit of last Friday (Parting shot) I offer up a new photo topic, steep...

    I'll start with some pics of the local loop, nothing worth writing home about but it is less than a mile from my front door...

    Post your pics of the STEEPS!

    From the top to the bottom, from the bottom to the top - well you get the idea.

    Last pic is just a 'happy trails' shot. ¨Good rides to all this weekend!¨

    A couple of shots of the same trail taken at different times last year, about 3000' above downtown Boise.

    Excuse the quality - it was done with a very cheap web-cam type camera.


    Nothing to see here.

    Problem with steep is it never looks steep in photos - but this felt pretty steep to me this weekend.. (The Ridge at Kirroughtree in Scotland for anyone familiar)

    Here's a few from Palmer park, got plenty of steep nastiness there, the last one is called the "Improve" cause there are multiple lines, if you look at the trees you get an idea of the steepness.

    It sure is steep! Pretty much vertical in the middle section.

    You know they sometimes station an OC Sheriff right at the bottom of Smoothy and they put a fence on the side that drops onto the main trail..

    all of sudden I felt like suffering from vertigo or something... I'm still not sure if I'm looking at the floor or ceiling here in room.
