"If they can’t be outside they begin to feel run down and out of their element."
Chinese Astrology - Year of the Horse
I've been having fun in the mud! First, last weekend, I went for a mountain bike ride on the Olmstead Loop with Linda, Ralph, and Justine. All three of them are way more experienced than I am MTBing, but they took me under their wing and showed me the way. OMG - I had so much fun.

|At the bottom of a long downhill, my legs were so tired, I couldn't hold myself up - LOL|

|Look Ma, no hands|
|Spiderwebs - beautiful|
|I love newts|
|Skidmarks - LOL|
|The group that was still there after the run - love it|
|Me toward the end of the run, in pain.|
|Human chains made crossing some of these rushing streams much safer|

Gary (FTR member): "Cant wait to see the pics, I lost count of all the thigh high streams we had to cross. Some with waterfalls just inches away. Thanks to everyone who helped in getting us all across safely. This run was the best!"
