    Getting High on the Divide

    After last year's West Empire Death March I thought to myself that the fellas who joined me would never ride with me again. I was wrong though, Lubes has stuck around and had even mentioned doing Jones Pass again though without the bane of Bard Creek. I threw out some suggestions to make Jones longer and even funner then it already is, add the PBR and the good times were rollin.

    It began with a mean and nasty climb. Even with a granny while the other two suffered single gears, I walked a little.

    P7260008

    Wild Flowers and the views kept our minds on the prize

    P7260012

    Least the cornice was smaller then last years

    P7260025

    and that cornice still holds strong

    P7260028

    The Continental Divide Trail appears and is as grand as I remember

    P7260030

    P7260041

    P7260042

    P7260047

    and there was the hike a biking, lots of it

    P7260033

    P7260052

    P7260061

    but when we reached 13,215 by bike, oh the hiking was so worth it

    P7260072

    Then the trail turned down

    P7260076

    P7260081

    P7260079

    P7260089

    A short ride in hike brought to the edge of an ancient glacier lake

    P7260094

    and some more magnificent scenery

    P7260096

    Then it was in and out of the woods on the way back down to 10,000 some odd feet

    P7260106

    P7260119

    connections are a must, PBR still found a way to enjoy this one

    P7260124

    Think we can get her started

    P7260128

    Maybe we can get this guy to give us a ride?

    P7260130

    or we can just nap a bit before riding that last piece of sweet singletrack

    P7260131

    Yup, it was worth it

    P7260148

    P7260157

    P7260168

    For all the photos check out the slideshow
