You never know this time of year when a high elevation ride may be the last of the season. During a nice dualsport loop a week ago, suggestions were floating around about a nice Wenatchee area loop. A few riders on the resulting trip have a jones for this place, and between late openings, fires, and early winters, it can be tough to get up there without a firm push. It is a strenuous but spectacular loop. I was having a crashy day and decided to wait and build up some more steam as the group rode up a nearby peak for the challenge and views, and started fooling with my phone video feature as I waited. The huffing and puffing is icing on the cake. The first guy back of course is the young buck in a loincloth, with ancient sages following.
