More Mountain than Bike

Today we went mountain biking on an intermediate trail. It should have taken two hours to complete. It turned into a four plus hour trip. There were a couple of crash and burns with a little skin left on mother earth. A couple of us has a mild case of altitude sickness and parts of the trail, the ones with down grade with rock and roots jarred the brain a little more than desired. Due to the several technical sections, a couple for boys walked much of the trail. As for me, I would reach a point where I would yell and race down the rocky, rutty and root studded downhill path. There was one benefit to the slower pace and waiting – there was time to enjoy the beauty of the area.

Once we were done, we went to the top of Brian Head Peak at 11,307 by truck. We took several pictures. We had someone take a picture of Jacob, Eric and myself.

Then Eric got his bike of the back of the truck and rode down the dirt road to the paved road and back into town to an elevation of 9,600. Needless to say he had a blast.
