    Levis/Trows Mounds 9/18-20

    Just got back from there after 2 day/nights and it was a BLAST!
    We did 28 miles over 2 days. Roughly 7.5 hours of riding.
    If you were there and some loud guys were keeping you up until midnight, that was us and I appologize.

    Boy am I sore. We took so many pictures and breaks that it took us longer than it should have, but that too was fun, just chatting and eating bars.

    Definitely the place to go within a few hours drive from the Twin cities.

    Levis is outstanding. I finally got there a couple of weeks ago and had a great time.

    Tent on gravel in a ditch on 1st night. I did not sleep well that night. Notice the excellent tent pitching skills. Half the rods were busted from a prior use. But we managed. We did this at 10pm in the dark when we got there.

    Tent on 2nd night in the grass this time.

    Anyone know what these are. I assume they are traps set by some kind of wasp to catch insects.

    Toad Road. Looks more like a turtle head to me.


    Some other guys we met that were from the Twin Cities. The 3 guys in the back, not the guy in red, he was with us.

    Group shot heading out 2nd time on 1st day to play around and take pictures at Lucy Loop.

    Getting ready to go go out on the 2nd day.



    Sh!T. Literally.

    I Love that view.


    Time to pack it up and go home.


    We covered 28 miles total and still had more to go but some of the guys were getting a little patsy on the 2nd day. 3.5 hours per day riding and I still had enough in me to do the rest.
    I don't think I want to go back anytime soon as most of the fun was riding an unknown trail and not knowing where the next hill or turn took you.

    Those little holes you see in the sand under the rock outcroppings are made by "Sand Lions" a common name for a creature that waits until an ant stumbles along, slides down in and can't get out. They come up from below and snatch 'em. Sometimes you can get them to show by sprinkling a few grains of sand in the cone.
    BTW, Glad you liked Lucys-building another teeter and skinny tonight.

    Nice pictures. In the picture of the people sitting around relaxing it appears as if one of the guys is enjoying a Pabst Blue Ribbon. That is a good choice of beer. I try to tell a number of my riding aquaintences that PBR is the official beer of mountain biking but nobody believe that.

    I used to think PBR was a Wisconsin thing but I was out west for a couple years and the mountainbikers there love the PBR as well!!
