Good Ride to Boulder Lake, McCall, Idaho - 08 21 2008

Recommended Posts

I finally got some pics today from a short ride we did outside of McCall, Idaho. It's cooled down up here and we've been getting some showers so the dirt is great in the trees - not too much dust in the open areas. We rode from Patty Flat road to a few miles past Boulder Lake before we ran out of time and had to turn around.

The trail was for the most part a fun high mountain single track trail with several miles of rock crawling - probably the most difficult rock crawling I've ever done so I am pretty stoked about this ride since I did it very cleanly with only a stall or two! My fingers and forearms are sore from so much clutch and throttle work - I felt like I was a trials rider at times with my ars end and knees all over the place balancing the bike through some of that stuff! Had to keep the momentum up and that front tire light and just let it bounce off and over all those rocks!

I only had my cell phone camera to take pics with so quality's not good but here are some photos...

I sure hope you do to BBBOM! We'll have a great time!

Plush - as usual, I'm the one taking the pics so no shots of me in there. I got one of my little bike with the pretty forest behind but didnt figure you all would be to interested in seeing that. The guys just never think about stopping to take photos. I on the other hand, love taking pics of the pretty scenary but if I stop too much - I get too far behind so I try to be quick about it.

I hear ya! You'd never know that I was actually on some of my vacations, or that I even ride for that matter!

Beautiful pics. It's too hot & dusty to ride here still. It's about 92 today.
