    Drove to Bishop this morning. Hit the woodcutter trail and rode up to 11k feet. Incredible views of Inyo forest, Death Valley and the massive Sierra range.

    The last day of our riding trip was a success!

    I got some really long socks so I could wear them under the pants. You can imagine why I wouldn’t ride without them!

    I feel so beat up. The last 6 months has taken a toll on me. Soon... I’m going to put covers on my bikes and I’m going to sit on a rocking chair.

    At about 9k feet today I spotted a lone cactus. The only one in the area period. Ice took a picture of it, will post later. I have damn near overdosed on scenery these last 10 days. Incredible!

    Looking at picking up your next sport? I assume you'd jump right into the deep end there too?

    I’ve met 3 of these people the last couple years. They are all so friendly, relaxed...

    I didn't think they were still actively utilizing fire watch personnel any longer?

    I met several of them with my Dad when I was a kid, but just assumed they were replaced by technology by now?

    There are few that are still manned. Sugarloaf mtn outside Leavenworth is one. A very cool lookout with incredible views. Access by going up eagle creek road.
