    Some late season stoke

    There's only about 30 days before the mountains are snowed in, but in the dryer parts it's prime time right now. Here are some pics from last weekend. Enjoy the stoke!


    The first gap of the day. Chase on a gap onto a boulder that was buttah.


    Sizing up the road gap that looks big but is pretty darn easy.


    LargeExtraCheese nailing it with style.


    Mutton hitting it clean. LXC and Mutton were new to this trail, and for me I'd wanted this gap since last year, and finally got the cahones up to hit it. Super easy (even coming in nose-heavy as I did on my first run). We all sessioned it for quite a while.


    Matt looking good, as always.


    LXC on a photogenic small gap part way down the run.


    Mutton all lit-up from the low afternoon sun.


    Sweet ridgeline singletrack that goes along a knife-edge ridge a little further down. Beautiful this time of year.


    Matt, throwing style on a smooth ridgeline kicker.


    Armando on what is actually one of the hardest moves. You can't see it in the pic, but there's cliffs on either side of you.

    No comment from me on location, since we aren't the builders. Sorry, but y'all know how it works.

    edit: so I don't sound like too much of a prick

    Edit* I'm not the one in the pics as most may have guessed from the link title (transition's blog) , been wanting to get up there for a while and haven't quite got the chance....Have a few friends that have been up there quite a bit.

    Nice shots, Juice... Good to see largextrasteeze returning from his Vegas hiatus and not skipping a beat.

    Nicely done hitting the road gap to you and Mutton. As you said, the tranny is like buttah (and practically endless). Looks like the builders have added a step up back onto the road on the other side?

    Cheers,
    EB

    Yup. The boys were able to just make it without pedaling when hitting the dirt side of the gap, but a few pedal strokes ensured no casing.
