    Well, Here are my firs mountain bike shots. Thanks to Steve for helping me haul the gear to the top. Thanks to everyone else for waiting for me.

    These aren't all the photos. I've got several more I will edit when I get more time next week.

    Dude! Awesome pictures man! The jump pictures came out amazing!

    I seriously can't wait to see what else you've got on your 2gb card.

    I will, of course, need the full sizers.

    I'd not, in a million years, guessed that this was your first mtb shoot! Kudos to you, Ben!

    P.S. Why do you all have such concentration on your faces?

    Oh yeah... because Josh told you it was a "light travel madness Saturday.".

    You all got hosed by Josh's light travel madness lies. ROFL.

    great shots, let me know if you have any of me, i was in the red helmet on an sx trail. great stuff though, looks like you got some good stuff on crack even without much room to choose angles.

    Great shots. You should watermark them so they can't be stolen or reproduced by the man.

    Sweet shots, definitely pro style. I was out there yesterday and had a super fun time.

    Here is a pic from last summer, nowhere near the quality:

    Updated a few more...I'm not too thrilled about the step down shots but I'll get better ones next time.

    If anybody wants prints send me a private message. I will do them for a very fair price. The more prints ordered the cheaper I can do them.

    Oh man, you guys suck! I'm so jealous! I was barfing from too much morphine drip on Saturday. (Finally had the shoulder surgery done.)

    To the OP, nice pictures! Stokes me a ton and gives me inspiration to work my ass off in physical therapy.

    Josh, great to see you're back riding again, and hitting up Pacifica no less! Right on. :thumb:

    Interesting comment. I've noticed some new building down there, but it was my understanding there is an uneasy truce with the landowner to the effect that it's all cool so long as nothing new is created. Anyone have any info? I don't want to lose the place and would be happy to get involved in an organized effort.

    I'm not too sure how true that land-owner-no-new-building thing is, but I was under the impression that as long as there is no new building outside of the already built areas, it was all gravy.

    The only additional building that is occurring is right along side of the other trails (within 50 feet), so it's not going way off the beaten path.

    Heck yeah man.

    Glad to hear you got the work done. Take your time with the PT, but also work your ass off in baby steps. haha seriously though, don't rush things and listen to them.

    I am so excited to be riding again. I am seriously at 97% on mt shoulder now. Its amazing. Before I hurt it the 2nd time, I was probably only at 75%. My PT was awesome and he will be getting a gift basket or something after my first race. So thankful.

    Nice shots!!

    I used to live up in SF, and I would ride the crack weekly.
    Moved to the OC and although there is a ton of great riding here, Pacifica is the one spot that I really miss.
