visitor's ride

Finally, some guests from my old homeland. If you don't count Andy, who's practically a Michaux local, this was the first visitor's ride. Le homies Nick, Steve, and Joe met me this morning at Old Forge Picnic Area for whatever amount of singletrack I could piece together in 3 or 4 hours.

It was the 3rd rainy day of the 3-day MLK weekend. Though this area has been under a green radar blob for 3+ days now, again, we did not get wet. A thick, fog cloud remained down low, but on the tops of the mountains it was almost clear. I showed the boys some of the descents I knew. Up Swift Run Rd to Snowy Mtn Tower, down to the Narrows, back up Staley Road & 4-Logs, past the tower again, a short detour out to Chimney Rocks, and then the sweet descent of the Chimney Rocks blue trail.

No good pics since I left the camera in the car, but it was definitely a fun ride for another rainy day in January.

Thanks for visiting guys!
