The trail's not on a ridge, but Lewis River Falls Trail has some beauties!

Not too shabby views from approx. 7000' elevation, Pot Peak/Devil's Backbone in Chelan, Washington area. I did this ride solo- idiot move, but epic trail riding and stunning views. Exposure, too.

You're so right - - especially when half the trails are still covered with snow . . .

BTW, I take it all back: ridge with best views has to be Tahoe Rim trail. Was out on a new section today - - not a ride unfortunately, was on foot - - above S. Lake Tahoe with view of the whole lake. AMAZING. Pics tomorrow maybe (forgot camera). Trail, when finished, will be astounding.

Lurking and jumped back on here a bit because I broke down and got a Droid with unlimited data. Now I can harass youse from the field. Gotta be careful with this smartphone on these forums because with an auto login and a touchscreen I could be banning members and not know it.

Last coupla years I have been painfully underemployed in the construction biz. Funny how having to hustle work takes a lot more time and energy than doing a steady gig.

My son will be out here end of July and we'll be headed to British Columbia to ride our asses off.

Looks a bit slow here at BF, at least in MTB. Same group of knuckleheads keep populating this place. Seems pretty civilized, though. I'm sure Doug is practically bored silly for lack of 'characters' posting here.

I have lotsa good memories of hanging out here and making cyber friends, even Ed.

YamiRider1316 - Tell us where you took the pics. Which trails?

The first one with the waterfall is Feather Falls which is about 30 minutes outside of Oroville in Northern CA. Its a pretty big attraction so if you google it you can find directions. There is 2 trails there usually take the longer one in and the shorter one out. Its about 12mi with about a 2000ft climb. Seriously an awesome ride though and as you can see the scenery is phenomenal. The last photo was taken from south rim trail in Bidwell Park. Bidwell Park is located in Chico Northern Ca.
