Took this picture at Tolland State Forest, East Otis MA riding this past weekend. With the exception of the pipeline I 've never seen more roots and rocks trying to pass themselves off as trails before.



More panoramas here.

Here's a 360 degrees view from Alto Campo, Picos de Europa in the north of Spain. It cost me half an hour of climbing ON FOOT to take this, so I might as well show it

It's a bit blurry here and there because of the low clouds travelling fast.

Here's proof of that. And no thanks, I wouldn't dream of riding my GSA to the top I'll leave that to the more capable off-roaders. It does get worse higher up too.

Oh I know the bike would, but I wouldn't.

I'm a tiny road rider with a heavy bike and virtually no off-road experience. Some flat gravel/dirt/mud is alright, but hairpins and steep slopes on rough rocky ground is out of my league.

So much to learn...

Man, you should have left that last bit of mystery. We GS riders don't like to admit to having had to walk. As amatter of fact I am sure there was a massiv slip just metres ahead and you went to check it out on foot. Then you decided against jumping it, 'cause your TKC80 were already worn down from the ascent.

I skipped ahead after reading the first few pages, so if this is duplicate information, I apologize. For those who find panoramas as addictive as I do, here is a great site devote to them which skips the quicktimeVR thing and just deals with making great art. He does two dimensional panoramas (panning left to right and up to down in the same photo) to make some stunning images. Check out the list of galleries about halfway down the page.

here's my second ever attempt at this

from the Last Dollar Rd over looking the San Miquel Valley? near Telluride, CO. Telluride would be off camera to the far left.
