Chris off the line
On the course
We took a couple of days off and extended our weekend. We spent some quality time on the trails outside Wilson. We climbed up the old highway, continued up the Ridge crossing a few snow fields, and headed down Black Canyon. That is always a blast. We then headed back up and crossed over to Phillip's Canyon. We got to the bottom and from previous experience we knew exactly how to get back. Chris though believes we can get back on a little dirt road and single track. It will only be 30 minutes more, Chris says. That does not sound too long and I am a sucker for single track so we start climbing again. It took us 90 minutes to get back to the car. It was not bad with the exception of running low on water and having to ration, but that was not a new experience for those parts.
We also rode the Cache Creek area again. I was surprised at how much Chris remembered from last year. We took Putt-Putt to Hagen, but then wanted to go up Hagen and not down, so we took the Gauging Station Trail back up and caught Hagen further out. We climbed Hagen to Game Creek (I think) and came down Ferris and Hagen. We took Cache Creek Sidewalk back to Putt-Putt and were back in no time.
