Having been on one solo ride and one group ride with my first digital camera, I have to say I have a whole new respect for those of you who unselfishly take time to shoot our group rides.

I was not so noble today. Most "Kodak moments" were ignored and the thoughts of just keep pedaling prevailed.

I've ridden this area half a dozen times and knew there was a herd of elk that lived there, but had never seen them. Finally spotted them today but too slow on the draw to catch a picture. Here's a few shots.

1. Mark, Scott, and Stephen on top of Spikes Peak with San Luis Res. in the background.
2 & 3 Trail shots
4. Never expected to see poppys in bloom in late November.
5. Where's Dave?

Nice pics.

Don't forget, the camara always makes a good excuse for why you're bring up the rear..... or at least why I'm bringing up the rear.

How many miles did you get in? How big is the park?

Sorry, no computer, no GPS, had map but didn't look at it. I recall the park is about 6,800 acres with 28 miles or so of trails. We pretty much just circled the perimeter, except for a detour to climb the highest point.

You've really got to keep on top of it if you plan to tell a story with the pictures. Pete is the master. Biking Viking is really good too.

Any maps or directions for that ride? How long? Climbing? I want to take my son out somewhere tomorrow.

Your right about that. I still remember your early morning Vegas/snow story. Outstanding.

Pete was there in spirit. We just showed up and rode.:D

Here's a little info. http://trails.mtbr.com/cat/united-s...all-other-areas/trail/PRD_165131_4518crx.aspx

$5 parking. There are copies of trail maps at the iron ranger. The elk herd was at the eastern boundry today next to the windmills.
