    Celebrate life ride
    Sadly Perry's younger brother pasted away a short time ago.
    our best wishs go out to his family.

    Most of the time the best way to celebrate life is to do the things you love
    A weeken in the mtn's with great company and some of the best single track around
    was the plan.

    Thanks Perry

    sat morning in camp

    That is some gorgeous country! I've been in the Sierras as far south as the Dinky Creek area, but will have to go a little farther and ride that area.

    Looks like some great country, a few challenges and good times shared with a few mates.... a celebration of life indeed.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures with the rest of us.
