Snow Ride at Palmer Park

This was a great time! Kevin, Jessie and I went to Palmer Park for a a fun 2 hour ride. The time there was great and the weather was perfect. Everyone did great. There were a few falls and a couple tears of cloths but in the end it was worth it! Everyone had a smiling face at the end of the day.

More trail shots!





Hanging out at the overlook!

Cool. I used to live a couple miles from there and would go for short rides there. To be honest, I always though was too sandy most of the time. Still very fun place. I would also ride around in some park in Black Forest.

You must have stayed on the lower trails. I love it there and wish where I lived now had anything like it. All the rocks, jumps, cliffs, etc.... At least it's only an hour drive or so!
