    Lake Minnewanka

    As it does every year, Minnewanka opened for bikers Sept 15. I hit it yesterday. NUMEROUS trees down. Not of the bunny hopping variety. The trail conditions were stellar but it was super annoying with all those trees down. Perhaps best to wait a weekend or two until someone gets in there with a chainsaw.

    Not sure what went down today, but yesterday I rode out of there at 7:30 pm and there were just as many downed trees as on the way in. Which were a lot. Especially before the top of the long scree slope near the beginning. I texted a few dudes from a few different riding groups to tell them to blow it off today, and wait at least until next weekend. Someone has to get in there with a chainsaw to clean this up. I tried moving a few of the smaller ones but no dice. I was with my daughter, who wasn't much help in the tree deadlifting department.
