My co-workers and I rode the McKenzie River trail from Deer Creek Hot Spring to Sahalie Falls and back yesterday. We wanted to get one last ride in before it snows. I rode my fixie 69er, and my co-workers Tom and Mitch had their full boing gearies. We made it out just before dark. Nothing broken. Good times.

Thanks for the vicarious hit, Lef-t. It stuns me to see photos of a rider in shorts & short sleeve jersey as I look out my window at 2+ inches of snow on the ground (one day later).

Always good to see your photo journal posts.

I wonder how it looks on the MRT now?

We got a dusting of snow in Thurston overnight. It surprised me how Mitch was dressed, Me and Tom were covered in layers, some folks have more cold tolerance. I'm always over dressed.

Mitch took a spectacular spill between Sahalie and Koska. He grabed a tree and held on to his bike with his leg to keep from falling off the trail into the canyon. The lava section can be dangerous, I'm glad he made it ok.

Yup, Mtn. Larry and I did MRT from the Ranger station to the next road crossing past Deer Creek road (bottom of Trailbridge reservoir), 24 miles total, on Thursday.

Stupidly (subconsciously?), I left my fanny pack at Harbicks :madman: , and with the weather and my schedule, Thursday night was the best time for me to go back and get it.

And SINCE I had to go back, and SINCE I had my lights and charged up batteries, and SINCE the weather was about to tank, I got in some bonus night-ride miles on King Castle Trail. Above the fog line, it was incredibly clear and beautiful.

Nice day (and night!)....and just in time, too.:thumbsup:
