I think someone upstairs wanted us to wheel today. We got a little of everything and all of it turned out perfectly - sun, cool mountain air, rain, mud/wet rock garden, and the view?! Sheesh....

It started out with blue skys and the temp was just right to be not too cold and not too hot. Had an uneventful climb up the "wall"/"stump". Got to do a little flexin' at the top:

Shortly after this spot it began to sprinkle. It was really just light rain from this point all the way until the rock garden where we took lunch. Right as we got rolling again it began to really come down. Dirt turned to mud and grippy rocks turned to slithering stones (nice imagry no?).

I'm glad we pushed through. Here's what we got for making it to the top today:

I've never gone down the Georgetown way before so we took that route. It's nearly 5 times as scenic!

The rain added a little thrill to the day but overall it was perfect. I didn't get many pics of my rig from my rig but I'll post up more when I get the others from Matt.

In general the vegetation is very dry - only wet for us during the rock garden. :shrug:

Nice pics. Hope you have everything put back together. The rain made it interesting, lots of sliding around. :) I'll have to look through my pics and post some of the better ones.

Thanks again Matt
