Great posting!

I haven't ridden there for several years, but I can still say that Brian Head is the best lift-assisted XC riding I've ever done, and that a decision to ride from town to the trailhead up top is a great way to get light-headed and bang into the wall of the rock house.

Did you guys do Left Fork of Bunker Creek and go down to meet the friendly folk at the general store?

You forgot the 7...don't forget the 7! 11,307 freaking feet. Too much pain to cut yourself short by even one foot!

Awesome shots!

Don't forget to do Thunder Mountain.

Here's some more from this ride

The weather was kinda scary
Image

Incredible views up top though
Image

Image

We were in for a shock once we got going - a short steep uphill almost killed us at 11k. Even the flats weren't so easy.
Image

But there were still smiles all around
Image

Image

Image

Some fun drops up top
Image

The start of Dark Hollow
Image

Image

Deno flashing gang signs
Image

More views at this overlook
Image

QS checks out the rock-huck possibilities
Image

Image

Image





GP rolls thru after cleaning the drops (just not in these vids)
Image

A couple QS lines





Can't see it, but Deno gets a flat
Image

Leaving the trees into the aspens
Image

Now we're in the aspens...
Image

Lots of them
Image

The skinny...
Image

Really skinny. This thing took me out too
Image

QS couldn't resist the gapper. Nor could he wait for us to get cameras rolling



Sweet rock on the way down
Image

'Tard
Image

Goof
Image

Gangsta
Image

Water crossing
Image

Very cool ride, lots of variety, and enough chunk and features to keep anyone happy.
