    Left Hand Canyon ride and pics

    So on Sunday, it ended up just being Front Range Migz, Debaser, and me. It was a great morning to ride. We decided to check out some trails we hadn't hit before. We made the call to go up the first one. It looked on the map as if the best way to do it would be downhill, though. Downhill was, indeed, the preferred direction, but we hiked up anyway. We eventually made it to the top to enjoy the great views. We could see Stanley Lake and North Table Mountain from up there. On a clear day, I'm sure you could see Pike's Peak.

    Anway, we rode down from the top on what started as a moderate double track but got steeper and more single as the descent went on.

    here's a few pics of the way up:

    1 - the climb in with Migz and Debaser
    2 - Migz keeping the single single on a single
    3 - way steeper than it looks. This was honest to goodness in the 45degree neighborhood. Hiking up it was like walking up a ladder!
