    Tip o' the iceberg.


    Winter has not yet arrived.
















    Late fall has, and it's close enough.  Need to acclimate to this first.
















    Muted, low angle light with lots of contrast will always make me smile, camera in hand or not.
































    Jeny always makes me smile.
























    Focused.






























    Fresh digging.  Or maybe scraping.





























    Just enough tech to keep us engaged.















    Great little Sunday jaunt on the bikes.

    Awesome as ever and thanks for some almost winter trail stoke.

    It's been getting down into the low 30s at night here in central Texas and we're all in a dither about what to wear & really, is it too cold to ride? So, great inspiration to see you guys out on the trails with a bit o' snow.

    Looks like the Fruita/Grand Junction area, but names(s) of trails(s)? Is there some brand new trail in there?

    Pics of Jeny rocking the tech with determination & joy is always a great inspiration to me to just try harder and have more fun doing it.

    Palisade Rim trail(s), on the east end of the valley.

    A great ride; close-by!
    Do you prefer the upper loop counter-clockwise?

    Fantastic Pics!

    It flows well both ways, but I think I prefer clockwise.

    Always nice to get a little desert fix as the temp drops into the teens here. Excellent photos. And subject matter.

    I'm with you... CCW seemed to be 75% "climbing" (I use that term loosely since it's not steep), I definitely prefer CW on both loops.

    I can't believe how empty and underrated Palisade Rim is- in terms of views and flowy singletrack, it's right up there with the Loma/Kokopelli trails. I guess it's overlooked because it isn't in a trail network like the other Fruita and GJ trails.
