Oh, and come visit any time but it will soon be ski season as it's been snowing this week.
Mountain bike season usually gets going in April/May in Gunnison and June/July up higher around CB.

The big benefit of our climate and very unpredictable weather is that it's nearly always MTB season. As long as you dress right, that is and have the right tyres on.  ;)
I have two sets of wheels for my MTBs one with 'Summer' tyres and one with 'Winter' tyres, so I can put them on according to the conditions that day.
Intend doing similar with my cross bike when I can afford to get a couple of extra wheels pairs built. 28c road tyres, 33c gravel tyres and 40c 'monster' cross tyres.
Been a bit dry here this year though, so not needed 'winter' tyres much. Reservoirs nearby are at 60% capacity which is what you expect at height of a very dry summer!

We get the USA Pro Challenge pro road race through here every couple of years. I got to be an embedded photographer on the back of a motorcycle in the last one which was a real thrill (and hard!).
Always looked like really hard work. But then compared to filming from back of a motorbike with a broadcast camera for 5-6 hours.....

Right, those guys have it harder, but at least they face backward and don't have to twist like the still photo guys do.
People here ride all year round, but it takes some special gear!

Combine the two and ride a Ski Bob, they are great fun.



A friend of mine did the Iditabike race some years back which is where Fat Bikes originated from and it was unseasonably warm and the snow melted. Not much fun trying to ride slush.

Yeah, that virga is like the creamy center of an Oreo. But don't forget to enjoy the delicious wafers too! ;)

Clouds - yep, they cloud and cloak history, too; the passage of civilizations, wars and temporary peace sees many.

A deceptively simple composition that works really well.
This is a very good image!

Thanks Tony, I also like it, but the thing that keeps nagging me (and preventing me to make a big print) is my own shadow on the pier  :-\

I confess to missing that detail!
Nonetheless, on review I wonder if it doesn't still really work in this case.

I really wouldn't let that detail spoil enjoyment of the image.
