I took these yesterday during my ride, this trail called JPL it was my first time there and I can safely say it was the prettiest trail I've ever been on
I only did 8 miles round trip it wasn't very steep but it was mostly single track and about a mile and half of rock gardens and four stream crossings two were pretty long and deep enough to pedal with your feet in the water, it was simply awesome here are some pictures.







I don't know why the pictures are so small because I didn't resize them

If you use the "attachment" fcn, then you get a thumbnail that you need to click on. The preferred way is to open a flickr or photobucket account and then hotlink the picture with the [img][/img] html url.

I really don't like stream crossings like the rest of the MTB world seems to. Washes the lube off my chain. Throws sand and mud up in my drivetrain.
