Drove over early to the Butte for a ride before a family member wellness check and had a blast on the way down. Today, I climbed up the trail to the intersection of the downhill and the double track and then went west to climb the Chelan Butte Road....

In all my years with Darrington as my "Happy Place", when I descended on Skyline, I'd stay on Skyline. Today's goal was to climb as high as possible, hike a bike as needed, and do Jackpot for the first time. I parked at the bottom of Skyline, and wit...

I went out this morning for a ride after last night's spring showers and experienced hero dirt almost everywhere but got a little wet from all the overgrowth leaning towards the trails. Orion has a new extended turn at the bottom allowing for a more...

Been gone for over a week while driving my daughter home from college, but I got to the trailhead this morning a little after 8am. It was an empty trailhead lot, clear of snow. I began the easterly traverse across the mountain, up to the first 'road...

Had one more day on the coast and wanted to explore another trail system. So I took the bike to Lake Silvia State Park north of Montesano and sampled a bunch of the trails there. It has the feel of the Tokul trails in Fall City but with more clay and...

Was out at Ocean Shores today so I drove up to the Seabrook trails and did most of them as the rain was holding off. Loved the trails and had a good time and enjoyed the ocean view from Mike-O-Rama. It reminded me of Anacortes or the Lower Ragi...

Figured the trails would be great with recent work along with the heat we had to dry things out. The trails didn't disappoint and I provided a tour to a new rider in the area. It was a comfortable day doing three loops this morning. Get your runs in...
