Eagle's Rest, Setting Sun

For some reason, I never bring a camera along on night rides. Well tonight, I was heading up to a beautiful mountaintop just in time for sunset, so I brought the camera along.
My canon A70 actually died last weekend, suffering an E18 error that has a reputation for rendering a camera useless, but for some reason, it started working again. There were some glitches in some of my photos, but all in all she seems to be working for now. Damn, I was ready to upgrade to an S410.
Wednesday is the usual night ride night, but I had to work, so tonight, it was just Albee and me.

We climbed up a Goodman Creek road, crossing the trail where it becomes the Eagles Rest trail. We continued climbing to the upper road crossing where we would climb singletrack to the summit.

Albee was a little tired after having to catch up with me. He was a few minutes late, so I left him, knowing he'd catch me sooner or later

A teaser looking down the Goodman Creek trail. it'll be dark when we come down this trail, so I snagged a picture when we passed.

Here's Al cleaning a tight switchback near the summit.

Finally at the top with plenty of time to enjoy the sunset. Al basks in the glow. Mt June in the background.

No photoshop, just Al's perspective on life.

Ya know, a little below the newly re-built Ash Swale Shelter, I rode thru a spot that stunk badly, but i couldn't figure out what the smelll was. Part skunk, part rotting flesh, part unknown. Maybe it was one of them bears. We're lucky we didn't hit any, cause we were flying on the way down, and I am so focused on roots and rocks along Eagle's Rest that I would not have seen old Smoky until I slammed into him. See ya tonight, Sasquatch

Ooh, that smell

OK, I'll admit it. That smell was me, silent but deadly Albee.

Great ride, 'Squatch! Either you were going really fast, or I was going really slow, on the way down. I prefer to think it was the former, not the latter.

Nice pics.. Did anything from WillPass turn out?

Brandon, thanks for pulling those pics back up. They were there last night, and then again this morning, so I dont know what happened to them after that. I got a few decent shots at Willpass, but the shots of you didn't come out. See ya tonight.

Same thing happened to me with the pics from Ridefest.. They were fine when I posted it and then the next day the links were all broken. There's something wrong with the gallery setup that changes the links.
