    damnit ! my friend and I went up to flag hoping to get in on some wasabi and stuff... being our first time out there we didn't know where we were going or where to find the shuttles...

    We just finished a push up rocky ridge and mt elden road towards wassabi when we decided we should probably think about heading back towards our camp (near shultz pass) So we started to head up oldham and literally no further than 100 yds down the trail we saw a truck with 6-8 bikes head down elden behind us. First shuttle we had seen all day Just our luck we ended up biking / hiking up what looked to be a sweet DH trail in oldham ;( I think we ended up doing everything backwards lol

    Ah, I miss Flagstaff in the summer. Looks like a good time was had by all. The ritual "fire jumping" goes back to the beginning of mountain biking, I remember doing that up at Winn campground back in 86-87 as a boy scout. Good to see the tradition carried on...

    Good stuff K. Sorry our schedules were off by a day. Woulda been fun to hook up with you guys.

    Where is that huge step up gap? That looks, uh, huge.

    I can see I need to get back to Flag and stay a couple days with peeps in-the-know.

    Wasabi is fan-freaking-tastic indeed.

    I rode there on Saturday in "record heat", but damn it felt great and I got a nice ride in up schultz, up little gnarly, dry lake hills, down pickle, up mt elden road, down organ doner, down upper and lower wasabi, and then back on rocky ridge. Just absolutely great up there and the highline made mincemeat out of wasabi.

    It was warm out but not too bad with an early start. I rode Wasabi on Sat as well but seemed a bit loose and dusty to me. I've never seen so many bikers out. Seemed like hundreds. Coming down m. Oldham it looked like most of them were pushing their bikes up the road Climbing Elden Rd at high noon is hot, even at 8-9000 feet. Better to be in the trees.

    Well, it was one of my best days ever in terms of being able to ride my heavy bike up those hills with ease, so I know it was warm, but it was dry and a lot cooler than Prescott. I expected everything to be dry and dusty, just kind of the name of the game during this part of the year. Luckily it was nowhere near as dusty/loose as Northstar in Tahoe, which seems to have a good foot of "powder" in between the rocks most of the time. Schultz was an absolute disaster on the way up in terms of mtb crowd and trail ediquette, but once I was past that I didn't see too many others. There was a big group riding out there (20-40 riders at least) on some of the Elden trails, I saw them a few times. No one seemed to be doing any shuttles or serious gravity riding (maybe save for a few individuals like you and I).
