    Sunday Ride

    A few of us went up to Mt. St. Helens on Sunday and rode the Ape Canyon/Plains of Abraham trails. It was a beautiful day....... I was shootin' the pictures, so there's no Yeti action shots, but some nice scenery.

    At the top of the Ape Canyon climb, you get some fine advice.



    The trail cuts over the beginning of Ape Canyon



    Coming up to a currently dry creek bed. This is one of those places you don't want to be if the mountain blows.....



    Gratuitous Yeti shot



    Mt Adams in the background



    There's riders on that trail somewhere......



    We stopped at the end of the ridge and checked out the scenery for a bit before heading back. It was a very nice ride..

    Good job!

    I hope you rode very lightly so as not to disturb th esleeping giant! Was your yeti black before you started? Awesome place to ride, now on my list of things to do.

    Everyone keep sending those trail ride shots with Yetis sightings too.
    What, me hurry?

    Ya, every now and then you would see some steam coming up from the top. It's really a beautiful ride. Not real technical for the most part, but it's a grind uphill. I'm happy to say that the Yeti handled all the climbing really well. I just dropped the Pike down to 120mm and pedaled away. The worst part of the ride is that once you get up onto the plains, a lot of the ride has 2 or 3 inches of loose pumice on the trail so it's like riding through sand. While we were up there, I heard a noise like someone was shooting a gun and when I looked up at the mountain, I got to see a big dust plume forming from a small land slide... That was a bit spooky..... Here's another shot, the crater is just over the first ridge and you can see some steam coming up from the lava dome.
