Wonderful Windy way

After work today I drove over to the upper lot of Hidden Mesa. Took the route down to HWY 83 and back. The trail was in great condition, dry and fun. The onthe spots of wet I saw were off trail so if you wanna go tomorrow hit it up! :thumbsup: While I was feeling spunky I did not make the last part of the steep hill from the meadow to the mesa on my SS. There is always next time! (I may also change my gearing a bit). I was a bit picture happy, snapping while I rode.. just a heads up

Lets call this the start of the ride (getting here was downhill, tailwind and sun behind me)


There was wind!


Onto the really smooth part, what is this stuff called? I went crazy just thinking about it






Found my exit, back on the dirt I go!


Heading up!







I made it a little past this point before I walked the rest.
