Photos from central NC

This past sunday, six of us started out at Gastro’s house and pedaled a few miles to the trail head of owls roost. Owls roost is a 5-6 mile long trail at Bur-Mil Park in Greensboro, which is one of many killer trails north of town. This is not really meant to be much of a trail/ride report, just an intro to a bunch of photos.

That’s Bryan. His facial expressions are usually pretty comical. He went with us in this past spring forum ride in Pisgah.

For these, I used a Nikon D70s, an 18-70mm DX lens and a SB600 flash.

I have a large Kona pack with an internal frame that I stuff my gear in. I usually just wrap my camera in something soft. Not the most ideal situation, but it works for now.

Owls Roost trail is posted as 5.7 miles of singletrack end to end, linked by a paved greenway, although it's definitely worth riding both ways. You can also add the Big and Little loops as shown here. (the labeling of the map is not good, but the trails are shown accurately)

Video of Big Loop and Owls Roost here.

Thanks man. Yeah, when I carry the camera gear on the trails, it is more about the photos than the riding. When I go to ride, the camera gear stays at home.
