Illabott today......snow fun

Turnsleft, WeMcD, BSPF, and I met up at Rockport to ride up
Illabott. A lot of atmosphere as we unloaded





on up the mountain it was nice



















back from the first spur and headed to Slide Lake trail head



















the smaller tracks were coyote headed towards me, the other were a deer headed the other way



someone had to crash







glad we got up there before we couldn't nice day, good company, good food at Cascade Burgers

good stuff!
the shot of the frosted leaves is top notch!
It describes so much in one simple pic, without a lot of foolery, augmentation, enhancement and crap!
real leaves, with real frost, filmed with real light,,,nice!

I only took a [very]few pictures yesterday as I was trying to take movies of all the fun. Now I need to get a new Apple so I can try to post them.

This is Craig[bspf] trying out his new cold weather gear, he got cold last time out.



Craig and Sean.



Next in line was Sean[WeeMcD].



Going away.



Here comes Tom riding clean up.



Going to try to get some movies up in a day or so.

Had a fun day. It was a nice crisp day, just a bit cool on the way to the turn off at Illabot Creek. I got some video of Sean and I falling down. Later I hope to have them on here.

Thanks Keith. I know your other commitments didn't allow you to join us.
I know you know what "shrivelly" is.

It was chilly.


Fog clinging to the river valley below.


















I had too much fun in the snow. Constantly testing traction conditions means that I found the limits a few times. There may be video proof of one oops moment.

My feet have finally thawed from that ride. Those new 606's were great in the fresh snow!

Sean is right about the video I have it on a VHS tape of it. It is a back up system just in case my computer skills fail me[again]. I have been trying since saturday on my Mac and PC. Today I went and bought a new Mac and made it a little farther, trying to get it in Smugmug now.

Tomorrow I'm going to call a friend and see just WTheck I'm doing wrong. I might be able to get it on Face Book.
