Chasin Aliens

Drove Gene and his son Gavin the 25 miles south to experience the amazing Alien Run Trail. This is high desert riding at its finest. Located just south of Aztec, New Mexico, rumor has it that an alien space craft crashed at this site. I have to say that the three single track loops you can take are out of this world! The boys handled the 6 mile beginner loop like champs

Ezra

Had a great time taking Ezra, from East Tennessee, up and over Telegraph. A elementary school teacher, he was on a 4 week vacation with his family through the west. He made sure to carve out some time to hit the renowned Durango single track!

Gettin The Rides in While I Can

With Purgatory’s opening day this Saturday, the blog posts will soon be changing from mountain bike pics to snowboarding ones. That doesn’t mean I won’t be continuing to ride as long as I can. Had a great day riding at Sand Canyon and Phils World  last week. 50 degrees and sunny, perfect weather for some fall riding at two of my favorite fall riding locations. The Sand Canyon Trail is part of the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument which contains a huge number of archaeological sites– more than 6000 recorded so far, and up to 100 per square mile in some places—representing Ancestral Puebloan and other Native American cultures. Then hit up Phil’s World on the way home.
