    I used to ski there. Close to Redding, pretty cheap compared to Tahoe and closer than Bachelor...

    Figured out how to recover some of the photos from my latest tour that I lost when my previous laptop died. Interesting process.

    Pretty far drop into a boat's cockpit.. I hope he didn't end up with broken legs/hips :(:

    Thank goodness he got over the top of the bars and went feet first instead of head first!

    Can you imagine this kind of off in Moab? Too many places where veering off the trail would result in a 500+ foot drop........... :eek1

    I tracked down a bit of back-story from a LiveLeak.com comment. Seems the rider (his name is Lolo) was being filmed for a French website, www.moto-journal.tv when it happened. Sounds like he's ok... only damage was to his pride.
