Quartz Ridge Loop

April 13, 2010

From Quartz Ridge Loop Quartz Ridge – Lost Goldmine at EveryTrail Another crazy eight loop. I really like doing figure eights. There’s something about the middle cross point that I love. Knowing I’ll be back at that point again…it’s crazy, but I like it. Saw lots of wildlife out there today…a cow, a snake, bunnies, […]

Bugged in the Supe’s

August 26, 2008

A gorgeous morning on the Lost Goldmine MTB Loop. If you like bugs for breakfast! The first few weren’t bad, but the last few dozen or so were a bit much. The Monsoons last night pushed out the heat, but brought in humidity and bugs. They hit my body like a hail storm, a constant […]
