My Turkey day ride!

Went out to Palmer Park early, I really miss that place. Managed to get in a few loops before returning to the festivities. Conditions were great!

Nice scenery, and a pretty technical singletrack to boot!

I'm surprised at the lack of snow on the mountains, unless that's snow and not bare rock I'm seeing near the tops.
