    Crystal RR

    Group of 4 rode Crystal yesterday (classic CCW loop) under clear blue skies and mild temps. Wildflowers were still popping in the meadows. The trail is a little dusty in a few places, but ground conditions are great and the trail is in awesome riding condition.

    Taking in a few never-gets-old views of Rainier from the ridge climb, and stopping at Henskin give this ride a special character. Also, being a bit of a spectacle at the summit house is something else unique to Crystal. Being asked to pose for photos with international tourists ("look at these crazy Americans!") was a first, though!

    Highly recommend scoring this one now if you've got the opportunity. Here are few pics:

    Looking good! Been way to long for me in that area, pics area nice since it seems like I forgot what Mt. Rainier looks like. Not as good a view from Ballard!

    For me, it's North Shore tomorrow. Gotta get my root riding in while it's still dry, talk about needing perfect conditions to stay upright, especially since I ride rigid.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....

    May as well say it here too.

    Slackers....

    Looked like an awesome day. Too bad you didn't get your, "Dead or Alive" on the way down past Henskin.
    Will have to get some Ezzy shots and post up after tomorrow.
