that was awesome, thanks guys for coming out.

trip report: we made it up yankee, successfully connected to Mammoth, but Kingston still a no go, there is a big drift right at timberline. was amazing how quickly you can rock through those trails- idaho springs to the big puddle on Kingston in under an hour, even with stops and a few spur explorations.

did you guys run Barbour?

Barbour was closed (gate). We ran Spring Creek instead.

First half of the day. Bottom is I70 @ Fall River Road, and the top is the Kingston Peak parts. Left is where we we found the snow, and right was where we went back toward Mammoth Gulch but stopped and turned around.

Barbour was closed. Elk calving??? Gate locked at the parking lot to motor vehicles. So, we decided to do Spring Creek to 721 to Idaho Springs. Lets just say Matt rode like a champion and popped that bikes cherry. No damage to bodies or bikes. However, difficult you think it is in a truck, it is much harder on a bike. Think, rolling baby heads and wheel sized boulders. I dismounted a few times more than Marco. 70 miles in total.

2. Taking a break after running around a bit on the mammoth gulch side.

3. Twinkies.

Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm sorry I missed it. My weekend has been consumed by the Collegiate Ultimate tournament here in Boulder. A good friend of my is in town to support his daughter who plays for the University of Washington. They won their semifinal game yesteday to advance to the finals today.
