    Marshall Mesa Conditions Report

    The forecast for 30 mph winds today was blown, ha ha ha.

    So what else does one do? Go out on a ride. And on that ride, I decided to add a loop on Marshall Mesa. I didn't venture over to High plains or the Doudy area so I can't speak of that. But I can say it was great not having the wind.

    I can also say that there are many muddy spots; so it's best ridden early while frozen--and remember, don't skirt around the puddles.








    (PS: Even as I post this, the forecast is for high winds yet the wind speed has only increased to 5 mph. I guess it's coming this evening--get out NOW)

    i rode the same short loop last night figuring it might be starting to freeze. no such luck. the mud was kind of heinous, and the wind was so strong i had to walk the last little bit up to the ditch trail.

    strangely enough, i ran into some hikers.
