wednesday's wonderland

absolutely and completely riding myself into the ground here.

and lovin' every last single second of it.

for ed's pix from today go here.

today:

we started out with a spectacularly pleasant 3K climb to here:


then scrambled, bikes on back, another few hundi feet to here:



ed, starling, loving every single step:


and then proceeded to ride the very edges of the wide-angle ridge line, total vertigo moments included... (see ed next to the edge!!!!?)


... scraping the blue ink of the sky, all along the edge ... for EVER.

in the pic below, we bombed down from where we were, then up the faint singletrack that heads up the right side towards the ridge, rolled delicately well beyond that, and then some, along the ridge line that goes straight right out of the right edge of the pic.


life is grand.

felt surprisingly well, and cleared more climbing that i ever would have thought on day 5 of our little bender. i know 5 days is a row is nothing too impressive. neither is 27 hrs out on the ponies in those short days.

but still. jeny is ti-ti.

i love our bender.

How are you jj? I keep expecting to run into you kids at some point, but it hasn't happened. Say hi to the not-quite-as-social-one for me.
