Somehow me and XX stuck in a stolen DP this morning and dodged all the rain. I think that this Weather Channel doppler data from 6AM explains it.Chris is still getting his legs back from SDS so I went on cobweb duty again today. Rolled it counter clockwise with so variations not usually taken.
Renegade/Nacho - I tried to put a gap between us but XX stayed right on my wheel. Rockburn Branch - on the down portion of the up-down-up I rolled it all the way down to the creek so we could roll up the off camber root steep. From Ridge I pulled the Valley View Alt (gotta get this while the gettin's good cuz trail work is imminent for this section) like usually, but then switched things up with a Double Connector (New and Old Connectors) dogleg that led us back to Ridge. Form there we rolled Cascade (the Falls way), Lewis & Clark, Old Track, and Log.
Twas a zippy 1st half and a mellow 2nd half.
Made it home just before the skies opened up.
