    015a.jpg Not an ADV trip,still fun ,Local Off rd club put on an off rd race, "Bigfoot Blitz" at our ski area. 12 mile loops,perfect weather. Recent rains kept the dust away.Some rocky technical stuff and steep climbs up the ski runs made for exciting racing. The chairlift was running for good viewing at the top
