Snow ride! (x-post)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nothing too exciting. Hall Ranch, snow varying in depth from 2-5" or so. Made most of the stuff, other than a few of the short, steep ups. I felt pretty good about that, considering I can make everything when it's dry.

Mostly clear sky, temps in the high 30 range. A few small dry spots, a few small wet spots, and the rest was still snowed. Mad for some fun times; I've got a really bad rear rotor, and just put in new brake pads front and rear.......not even remotely bedded in yet. Picked up the new rotors I'd ordered after riding, of course.

First bike tracks; I ran into three little old ladies hiking their way down, but saw noone otherwise. It's already getting melty; locals better hit it in the monrings until it's all gone, or it'll be pretty sloppy.

A few critters; the usual metric assload of prairy dogs were out and about, and saw one large group of deer led by a nicely racked buck. None consented to pull camera duty, so we're stuck with the timer results.

Someone used ill in a sentence. I haven't heard that used in...20 years. "dude thats so ill" haha...thanks for the memories.

Nice winter riding. If this lack of snow keeps up I might be riding myself. I have a few trails I would like to ride with some snowcover on them
