Just put one new and one old Rat Trap Pass tires on the Ravn. Had to ride. Got caught in the rain. Got soaked.
Pushed hard up the hill. Felt good. Back on 99.
Up Jackson Creek. Lower Upper Dan's trail to Dan's-Horse connector. Kept going towards the saddle but when I passed 611 road I thought "one day I'll take that road". Then decided today's the day. It starts up steep and continues steep for a while, but then as soon as it starts going down there is a gate and then it pops out at a parking lot with a tremendous view at the very very top of Lewisburg road. All fast downhill from there.
Set out to do a longer ride but just didn't feel like it.
Scouting for an overnight I hope to do soon. Back through old Adair and then toile the Intensive Managment Trail back to Peavy.
Out Jackson Creek, then out towards Chip Ross park on back on Dan's Trail. I kept going and road all the way up Lower Dan's and half way up Upper Dan's. I was impressed with how well my bike and I were climbing.
Cooler day. Rained after I got home.
