    Dammit, user name is to short, I wanted to use the same user name I use on other sites.

    Thanks!

    I wished I had waited to start my ride today so I could catch the full moon, but since I started early I ran into my buddy Paul and he always seems to push the envelope.

    ^nice! We did a similar ride last year with about 3k worth of descent over 7 miles. Gotta love freshies!

    PS: Dig the sunset in the background towards the end.

    Thanks for the good words. That is actually the sunrise coming up in the background We have a group of guys that meet at the trail head at 5am and get one in before work about 3 times a week. No better way to start the day than waking up with nature. We have a regular one that supplies us with 2k of descending over 2.5 miles, so that means 2k of climbing to earn it. Our rides usually end up being about 1 1/2-2hrs in ride time so we can get back to work at a descent time.

    Sounds like a brutal climb with a good reward. Do you descend the same trail?

    Seems something is wrong with your camera. Makes the ground look all white.

    The sunrise at the end is nothing short of awesome though.

    Right back atcha, JBO! Funny how we got a similar shot with the moon in the background.

    Golden is, well, Golden.

    I have become quite fond of being in the woods at nite. So much is happening that you can't see, and it's amazing how you other senses wake up.

    Here's a vid that my friend Fuglio posted on Pinkbike. It was the night after the first of two "Black Moons" this year.

    Enjoy!

    'nother nite ride on Otero. We almost got blasted by a freak snow storm at the end. I was semi-prepared for "wet" weather, but the near white-out conditions were definitely unexpected.

    We took a break here and not a cloud in the sky...
