    ok today i rode trails in palo druo canyon located just outside of Canyon, tx. its the second largest canyon in the U.S. and its way better than my previous ride in teh canyon/landfill in Dumas. i rode the lighthouse trail, the most difficult. its not difficult at all if youve been riding for a while and know when to pull up. it costs $3 a person to enter the park. i highly suggest you to ride in the canyon if you get the chance.
    http://palodurocanyon.com

    so heres the pics.


    view from the top




    getting ready


    i just had to








    this was steep


    about a 30 ft drop to the bottom.






    this was fun


    riverbed


    the famous lighthouse


    this is where i stop and the horses begin.


    big view


    thats all folks


    or is it?

    i had to ride it again.

    Looks like a sweet ride. Me and a few friends are hoping to get to do some riding like that on a trip we'll be taking next year. 70*, no clouds... it's just not fair.

    im using these pedals
    http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/115...um-Pedals-.htm

    my pedals are my favorite thing on my bike

    and those NB's work well with the pedals. theyre just regular cross trainers. i wanna get a pair of salomons though.

    How are those Azonic's holding up? I thought about getting them, but opted for the Sun Ringle ZuZu's instead. Call me stupid but what are salomons?

    Is that a UFO following you around out there?

    Appears to be a fun place, but totally different than here in Pisgah Forest, NC. Our trails look like that one with all the log steps, except they're roots here.... And lot's of mud....

    Interesting sedimentary formations....

    Wow! Looks fun! You should try riding in Cornwall, TOTALLY different, highest temp you'll get her usually is maybe 14 degree C on a good day, and the trails are ALWAYS wet...
    Great pics though!

    Did you ride that trail on a Trek 4300? If so, is it stock?
    Good call on riding flat pedals with the the new balances. I do the same. The thought of cartwheeling down a hill while clipped into pedals just turns me away from clipless. I'll give up the extra pedaling effeicency and wear shoes and rides flat pedals. Too me, it's worth it.
