gap crazy

3 posts in as many days. all this early morning time at home has me becoming a blogslut. beware uncaffinated postings.

can't stop planning rides up and down the local mtn gaps. plenty of smaller, kick you in the jimmy hills, but the gaps represent a challenge. as i crest and head down the long descent, wonder if so much downhill riding "counts" as training time? i'm just sitting there hanging-out.

yesterday had a plan to bag a cpl gaps. can snag the two closest ones, ride 60% of it on dirt and be home in 2hrs or so - pretty sweet deal until the mtb trails dry-out. as i left the driveway, my screaming legs told me to make different plans, so we headed-down one of my favorite flattish roads, where sheep graze in whatever lane they like:

and down towards rt 100. the ride up and down through Granville Gulf is quiet and scenic. rock walls rising-up through stands of pine, ferns littering the forest floor as the snows melt, the mad river flowing to the north, and the white river flowing to the south to keep me company. variations of this ride have become a rest-day favorite. with the snowpack melting, Moss Glen Falls were a roaring:

was thinking about how great of a swimming hole this would be in summer, when i saw this sign:

as i was uploading the waterfall video, found this one of mikey-j from 2 months ago i forgot to post. holy crap "we" had a lot of powder days this yr!
