    Lukeduke invited us to spend the long Thanksgiving weekend in Phoenix with his family...the result? Great food, awesome riding, and good times.....

    AZ Rocks! (literally)

    Downtown Phoenix from SoMo.

    One of our local guides, Bill, on his very second time on a DH bike. Woot woot!


    On Geronimo. Oz's fave trail. OMG, all the rocks :dead:

    Fantasy Island is definitely on my top 3 most fun trail ever list..

    Sunday, our last day, I was too sore to ride so I was the shuttle cutie.
    Oz and lukeduke preparing for the shuttle run down Holbert and Geronimo. It was freezing cold!


    Thanks lukeduke and family for being such a great host!.
