A little blogging about my ride on The Lost Burrito trail today: RockyChrysler™: One Waterbottle and Imminent Danger
Ray does a much better job of telling the origin story behind the burrito's name than i ever could. Folks will just have to find an early edition of his book if they want to read it.You wrote a story about Lost Burrito without explaining how it got it's name. Some writer you are.
Plus, there is some interest in building a new and improved Lost Burrito Trail, once the new Brookbank Trail is completed. Not official interest, involving the Forest Service, but rather interest from people who ride bikes, who are willing to cut in a new trail that doesn't excede an 8% grade. You might want to ride a trail like that more than once every five years.
not calderas: collapsed lava domes: got it. i have so amended my blog.Great story Rocky! It's probably been 4 or 5 years since I've ridden or HAB down that lovely bit of fall line sheep trail but your prose brings back memories. The second Dry Lake meadow is a little hidden gem. Oddly enough, according to the expert on such things the Dry Lakes are not calderas but rather some sort of collapse feature related to formation of the Lave Dome or domes that created Dry Lake Hills.
I took said expert volcanologist that sold you that sweet late 80s Rock Lobster on Lost Burrito way back when on his first ride on clipless pedals. He was not pleased.
i love your vision quest on the trail you can see from home. I can see Bell Pass from my backyard...i feel it bro! master it, its your backyard, your white whale! :thumbsup:A little blogging about my ride on The Lost Burrito trail today: RockyChrysler™: One Waterbottle and Imminent Danger
