This is one of my favorite trails. It's very doable, but it's never easy. I got up early and picked up a couple passengers (one very handsome boy) and we headed out. We encountered a couple of these guys right off the bat:



The handsome boy behaved and didn't run off with them, rather he stayed by his momma's side (yeah, he's kind of a momma's boy).

Here's EJ with the world behind her:



The handsome boy:



Beggin' a drink off momma:



Climbin' up:



Aliens?



I always have to post my shadow:





It's really all about Jake:



One last shot, I got into my camera again!



Later we saw a big kitty, but it high tailed it out of sight pretty quickly.

Hey, girl, these posts of like something from Invasion of the Body Snatchers: Must. Get. To. Fuita. Must. Get. To. Fuita. MustGetToFruita. MustGetToFruitaMustGetToFruita......
Powerful pull, that country has and my internal compass seems stuck pointing to the northwest (I'm in Central Texas).

Lovely photos, as always.

So is the "never easy" part just a grinding climb? Was Mr./Ms. Kitty a mtn lion?

Middle chainring climb with techy bits. A bit more difficult with a rigid ss and 34:18 gearing.

Yes, the kitty was a mt. lion. Very fitting, since it was on the Lion's Loop section of trail.

The most interesting part of it was the adrenaline. I was buzzing for hours, but then I had to take a nap in the afternoon.

Love your dog!
Not my pup, it's EJ's dog.

Short story about Jake. She brought into the shop 30 minutes after adopting him and proclaimed him to be a 9 month old lab mix. I took one look at him and said she had a 3 month old great dane on her hands. Turns out he's a dane boxer mix and was about 6 months old when she got him. The web feet (a dane trait) made her think he was part lab.

Mo, there is talk of a fall trip to Fruita
September or October? I'm interested in doing the Huntsman Senior Games on October 13-14 in St. George, Utah, or at least using that as an excuse to drive away from TX. They have a mountainbike race that looks very similar to the Mas o Menos, you just have to be 50+ to race :D

I'd really want to take off two weeks to make the long drive worth while, and that would be an ideal time to be in Utah/CO, weather wise; September would be nice, too.

I'm also interested in the Womble Trail. Do you know how long a drive that is from Austin?
