I’ve had my hands full with there being a very small, new addition to our family earlier this year but with family in town visiting to help out I took the opportunity to head for the hills. Two friends and I left town around 6am and headed for a mountain trailhead about 40 minutes away. We toured into a zone new to me, checked out a possible future camping zone we’d spied on satellite imagery and then rode a heavily tree’d face, avoiding cliffs as best as we could and then exited via a creek bottom back to the truck. All in all we skinned and rode just over six miles and were out around four and a half hours. The day was quite cold although sunny which made it an overall great day to be out in the woods riding cold, fresh pow.
