Here's some more "way overrated" trail from CB. Deer Creek this time.

The ankle felt a little better the next day, so we headed out under threatening skies. I was still nursing my bruised bravado form the previous day, so I rummaged around in the bag of tricks and pulled out the smaller camera, and the new baby bruvva:



Deer Creek is a bout a 9.7 mile continuous singletrack that undulates and switchbacks towards (or away from, depending...) Gothic.

This by the way, is NOT Julie Andrews:



























I would love to hear a definition of overrated. If something that is very good gets called excellent, does that maen it is no longer "very good"? A philosophical question indeed, but as I worked over these phots,and remembered the ride, I certainly couldn't imagine calling it overrated, much less hating CB.

It was time to head back to life, work and obligations. I packed up the Yetis and headed over Cottonwood pass, and was treated to a freak snowshower.









And down in Buena Vista I was presented a lovely reminder of how lucky we are to be here.

Dang, what a craphole. Hope I never have to ride there.

Joking aside, I was in the Breckinridge area this past weekend. Seemed even greener and prettier than it usually is this time of year. Looks the same way in Crested Butte.

Beautiful! You and Rich sure have given a big boost to the CB tourism board. not that they really needed it, but CB just moved up the most visit list.

Thank you very much for sharing your trip!

Damn, are there ANY un-picturesque trails in CB? Every one I've seen is absolutely beautiful. I'll be in the Keystone area (Dillon) next weekend, for 9 days of riding. Is it worth the drive (4 hours?) to go down to CB, or will Breck/Vail/Keystone suffice?

Awesome pics!

I'll be posting mine shortly.

Sounds like CB was the place to be this last week ;) Really popular area! We didn't hit up Deer Creek, but looks like fun.

Hardly noticed it actually :eek: , rearanged a few icons, and it's hardly visable now.....besides if I was riding with, you'd be getting a view of mine! :rolleyes: j/k

Seriously, you guys really have the scenery out there, even with you in the shot. :p Have to get out to Denver to visit my daughter and hit CB for some riding for sure.

CB in March / Apr

What an awesome set of CB shots you guys have been putting up. Cheers for that, it is very inspiring stuff. I am sooo keen to get there one day. Problem is I live in Australia.

However I am planning to head to Denver next year around March / April. Will these tracks be at all rideable then, or will it still be a winter wonderland? Gotta remember that it never snows where I am in sunny Perth, so I am way more susceptable to the cold than you guys. Should I just resign myself to skiing? Such hard choices you guys have. :) ;)
