fruita in spring...seems to be a common theme around this board, so i'll add to that one.
ride one: hit prime cut to zippety do da with the infamous screampint. flowers blooming like mad in the bookcliffs right now, it's pretty spectacular. the zip downhill is in excellent shape thanks to spring rains and is completely rideable, super hard pack.

pic 1: climbing frontside to get to zip- sarah singlespeeding the climbs where most are in granny gear.
pic 2: wildflowers and the trail to forever
pic 3: the rollercoaster section of zip
pic 4: more rollercoaster
pic 5: more wildflowers

now on to ride two...

okay- ride two in the wonderful fruita spring. a quick hotlap on rustler's with the freshie who is finally back on the bike after knee surgery. and some ridiculous photo shoot sessions to boot.
pic 1: Jen on rustler's
pic 2: similar image
pic 3: the overlook on rustler's
pic 4: overlook and sunburst
pic 5: sunlight hitting the rocks...okay, that's what i like about the pic, the textures formed by the different color river rock in the foreground

No kidding. After the Walt and Rob clash over which vehicle I wanted I was a bit worried about both of them stalking me. Then when Rob actually came to town... Well, let's just say that he tried to steal my kids' bikes, pestered my hubby, and arrived with his "family." Luckily Walt has not done the same thing, although since he doesn't anounce his Fruita visits (if he does visit) that might be scarier ;)

Now, now - it was only one of your kids bikes we stole (Danielle's would be too big for me). As for pestering your husband, I merely sampled some of his beer (4 or 5 times, but who's counting) while returning the stolen goods.

Just to set the record straight about Waltomatic - I was defending your honor (as any good stalker would) after he made some poor assumptions about your lifestyle.

Now, can you send me Annie's address so I'll know where to park?

Instead of turning to get to the shop just go straight, no wait, not straight, forward. Straight doesn't work for her house.
nothing straight about our house whatsoever.....full of freaks. i'd avoid it at all costs, 'specially over the festival when it's full of intoxicated pro riders building dirt jumps in the backyard and driving nekkid thru town. defiantly not straight. you're right.
