    Hey thanks for the water! I severely under estimated my intake at 8k feet and
    you pretty much saved my ass, pints on me next time.

    For those who made it up and over that nasty bastard of a trail :beer

    the views were worth all the battering

    We should have, but not sure how to do it without doing a lot of cutting and pasting. All I was able to do is provide a link...:deal and will continue to do so.

    This wasn't intended to keep it local or cause a division, it just so happened there are FFs who want to keep it informal without doing some editing, silly, boring, lousy, low quality pics, and sometime stupid that may not be appreciated at the other board. We could have done the same on the Cedric Ride which was an epic event and that too stayed in the regional section.

    Many are already aware of the WMRS Ride Report and appreciable pics should be posted there so that the whole community can enjoy them.

    Good job Stonewall and thanks for organizing this epic event!

    Wow. Looks like you guys had a helluva time. I'll have to check this out next year. Had to work this past week.

    Good times, good times.

    From what I heard, they will open the gate to White Mountain this coming fall, but not the research station.

    We can plan another trip, but this time camp between Independence and Bishop. Easier for those riding small bikes, which I will be on, to get up there and back to camp.

    Go up on Silver Canyon, to White Mountain, then come down on Wyman Canyon, or............. the other way around so that we can see the view of the Sierra on the way down....really depends on what the FFs want.

    This place has so much to offer....then for the more adventurous riders, there's Coyote Flats.

    Definitely in to going back & doing Coyote Flats ... didn't hit that last time.

    I just rolled in around 2:30 this morning. Camped at a spring for a couple more nights & rented a bike at Mammoth for a day. Up at 6 am yesterday & did a loop over Sonora, over to the coast, down to the James Dean highway, back inland, & then continued to LA.

    Pics to come!

    Inte, you may want to post your pics as per above request from Stonewall.

    The unworthy and silly pics, are the only ones that we keep here....:lol3

    Glag to hear that you're home and had a longer adventure than the rest of us.

    Now it will suck to grind the week away!

    Nice. I am leaving for Mammoth in the morning. It will be my second year doing the lift runs. Lot of down hill runs and drinking. Ben

    I'll be back for sure!!!

    I've ridden Mammoth before, but had never used the chairlifts until this weekend. A friend happened to be in town & wasn't into climbing all day so we got tickets ... insane being able to hit the runs that many times. :clap
