Good ride today

We rode in Pisgah today, trails were great. Were having a run of super weather so I'm trying to get some time in the woods while I can. I took some pics with a cheap camera so these are'nt great but there better than nothing. Had a pretty good crash, another rave about wearing helmets. My face hit the dirt but my lid bounced off a root,rung my bell good. Still a great day for Jan. around 70f .The pics are of longbranch tr and cat gap.

We've had some wonderful weather lately here in the southeast... It's quite the trip to walk outside on January 1st and it's 68 degrees outside. Not that I'm complaining or anything, it's just unusual.
