2004 Summer Vacation (AKA 15th Anniversary Tour)

Update: Lots of Pictures posted, I have them broken down mostly by day. I am still sorting and annotating them though. Also for the Mountain Biking fans out there you can check out the Iron Horse Trail photo’s I have up.

I’m getting an early start on getting the pictures up from our vacation by getting them up while we’re still on vacation. All family pictures so for (no riding) but there will be plenty of trail pictures later.
The first batch of pictures we are just outside of Portland spending a couple days with Martin and Elizabeth. Click here to check them out.

Bear Valley

Had a great ride a couple of weeks ago with the trogs at Bear Valley. We had a point to point ride planned and we were planning on going twice but somehow we got mixed up and wound up way off course and had an unexpected 5 miles of climbing so we called it a day after one run. Even with the unexpected climbing and 1 1/2 miles of hike-a-bike it was a great ride, there was some incredible buffed singletrack, lots of fun downhill, great rock gardens and a unique slickrock section.

Bryan Bruce Baker

This morning at about 1:00 AM Kansas time my father, Bryan Bruce Baker, died of a heart attack in bed. Right now I am pretty floored, it’s 4 O’Clock in the morning and I haven’t been able to get any sleep at all. It’s all there, the self doubt, the regrets, the blame, but most of all just an overwhelming hole in my life. I put together a page with some of my own thoughts and feelings about my dad and I will be putting some pictures and other things up later as well as anything that anyone else in the family decides to put up as well.
