kwtoxman Here are a few more pics.

This is on a bike and hike.



From that monster vertical climb hike (two shots).

Those dots on the right snow pack are mountain goats.




This shows the ridge I was hiking.

kwtoxman Sorry about the delay. Busy busy. But I managed to post some more here.

I agree JD about vertical. Here are a few examples of vertical from the trip.

I'm not used to the elevation. I camp and start out at a mile high on these trips in the Rocky Mountains and the go higher. It really takes a lot out of me.

First is a dedicated hike. Got above 8250 feet. Over a mile and a half above sea level. This was 3000 vertical feet of climb. Hardest trail I've ever done. It was a ridge hike and a crazy steep ascent. But what a view when up there.

Second is a dedicated bike ride. This is about 1500 feet of vertical climb.

Been riding the mountain bike a lot since I got back. More than the RC51. I am much more fit now than I was earlier this year. I needed this.








This picture shows the flood damage still from 2013. What used to be a 20 ton capacity bridge in the backcountry.

Now to read up on the forum. Cheers all.


And there's a thread for what you did on vacation ... .. .. .
Pictures, or it didn't happen.
Or else I'll say I vacationed on Mars.




P.S. Picture from a happier time (!).

jondog9 Vertical accents are the real measure of how far you went when it comes to mountain biking, imo. 20 kms per day for 6 days straight is pretty respectable!!! Now you need a staycay after your vacay.
