Saturday afternoon fun!

Went to Spruce mountain, had a great time. It was quiet and peaceful with almost no one there. Man it was a great day!

Dry at the very start, that quickly ended


Up I go






Close to the top


The top






The start was dry, quickly turned to snow, then to snow/dirt/ice mix. The top was a mix od dry and parts of snow.

I think with all loops it's 8 miles or so. I don't have an odometer and don't remember all mileages.

You do have fun, and that's awesome. Always makes me want to pull the trigger on a new mountain bike when I see your pics.

Thanks for sharing,

Denny
