    Did a trail this past weekend that I hadn't ridden in about 4 years. You have to climb for at least an hour, but the trails were all very tacky and the singletrack descent is a bit primative and places, but very fun.

    The colors out there were amazing. We were slighlty overdressed because it ended up being about 65-70 degrees! It starts with a big fire road climb which is actually a nice change from most rides around here that are all singletrack.









    The burn area is from a fire back in 2003 that burned over 140 square miles.

    Looks like a beautiful run. Can't wait to get up in the Oregon high country next year as much as possible.

    Fast and a bit primative. This trail doesn't get ridden a lot since it is about 40min from anythng except Sisters, OR.

    I just met a couple that moved to Saratoga Springs from Bend, OR and she and I are going riding together this weekend. I am afraid she's going to kill me and she's afraid I'm going to kill her...it should be interesting to say the least :busted:

    Reading your ride reports makes it tough to remain in The OC.
