How's Your Aspen?
Fall is my favorite time of year, I love it. I've been up in the mountains riding the West Mag trails for the last 3 weekends. Probably not supposed to be doing it because my knee is still messed up. It seems to be tolerating the riding but doesn't seem to be getting much better either. But I missed riding all summer and I'm going to take advantage of every last weekend I can squeeze in before the snow starts to fly up there. This weekend the Aspens finally started turning. Seems like it was a bit late this year.
Jonny's friends call this part of the trail the 'car wash'. I call it the 'Ewok Trail'. Actually I call it the 'fuzzy little Star Wars creatures on those fast motorcycles that flew through the air forest' because for some reason I can never remember the name 'Ewok'.
Don't know how many more biking weekends are left up there at 8000' but I'm going to try to take advantage of every single one that I can, screw the knee.
