Talking Spring Time in the Sierra Nevada

Since I returned from Afghanistan, I have been riding a lot. It has been a wet spring here in Northern Nevada and the snow is being rather stubborn.

Snow Mobile

If you stay on snow mobile tracks and keep your feet hanging like skis on the side of your bike, you can ride along the top of the drifts rather nicely as long as the snow stays firm.

If you get too far into the back country and the snow is softer the sled becomes a dredge.

High Centered

I try to ride the trails on the sunny side of the mountains, but here there is a persistent mud that tends to pack under my low front fender. I almost made it back out of this hole, and then my front tire bound.

Tire Bind

I tried to get the mud out with a stick, but I ended up having to take my front fender off to clear the debris.

Cleaning Fender

So after about seventy five snow drifts and six or seven times lifting my bike out of the sticky slippery mud and icy snow. (I was glad to have my brother there to help me push) we made it out of the mountains and home.

A couple of days later we decided to take our wives on some forest service roads we had already scouted.

Adventurers

I think she is getting the hang of this adventure thing.

I took this photo of Graywolf on Thursday.

We were literally in the middle of nowhere - we did about 25 miles of cross country (following cow tracks) when I was trying to connect two roads
