Fatback, Gunnar, and Shameful Fall Rides

This past week's rides have been some of the best for views, pure jaw-dropping-can't-see-enough-awesome-beauty, not to mention it has been extraordinarily nice with many sun filled days and some perfect riding temperatures.

Amazingly, I had 1st snow here so of course I rode the Fatback in the 4-6 inch mini dump. It was quite magical this day, fresh snow that started melting off the trees as soon as the sun hit them. It was a very awesome day of riding the Fatback.

As fast as the snow came, it melted away giving more sweet fall days and some extended time on the mountain with a regular mountain bike.  As I write today all is changed since it seems it's suddenly cold with temps in the single digits. No snow though which is a huge bummer, I'll try to be patient, which is obviously torturous as you can see.

It's hard to tell people what I see on my rides (although anyone is welcome to ride with me) so once again I am sharing a small fraction of the many photos I took this last week or so.

As far as this bike goes, I do not know where it came from or how it ended up in my possession...but it sure is fun to ride not to mention is has a cool looking custom (rattle can) paint job.

Thanks Doug! Some days photos are so easy while others I'm lucky to get 1 out of 100 to look good. Glad someone else got a fatbike, I can't seem to convince people down there that fatbike are beyond fun to ride.
