Last year we couldn’t ride Hole-in-the-Ground (one of our favorite rides) until August because of all the snow – this year’s so dry we’re already riding it in June!  There are maybe 10-12 trees down across the trail and a few snow drifts but other than that the trail is in amazing shape and super fun to ride.

Wildflowers are out in force. The mosquitos are also out in force so take precautions!

Get out the XL chainsaw for this tree across the trail!  Most of the downed trees are a lot smaller – you can hop over them.  There is one other down’d tree that’s as big as this one.
