Update : Photos and a partial ride report for the Cannell Plunge are up
What an incredible week. I started out on Saturday with a 25 mile ride in Auburn with Kevin, we started in the ravine and rode up the Clementine Lake trail to the newly opened Clementine-Foresthill Divide Connector trail (which is a great trail by itself) around Foresthill Divide and back down the Tunnel Trail. Somehow we did the ride 1 1/2 hours faster than when we did the same ride in the fall.
On Sunday we drove to Yosemite and hiked up about 1200 feet to the Yosemite Falls Overlook. That hike really kicked my butt. We have tons of pictures from Yosemite and I will post them as soon as possible.
After taking it relatively easy on Monday I hooked up with Steve Wolf yesterday for a ride out of Kernville (East of Bakersfield) called the Cannell Plunge. Char drove us to the top so I have some shuttle karma I need to work off but it was worth it. 25+ miles with 2500 ft of climbing (at 9000′ your feel every foot of it) and a whooping 8000′ of descending down some absolutely incredible singletrack. The final 6000′ of the descending is done on the last 8 miles of trail… This ride was incredible.
