Today we went up high. Rode to 9000 feet. Lots of snow. Not much oxygen. Rob wanted some ride info, so I will post the elevation profile. The trails are generally not very technical, the biggest challenge is the altitude. Spectacular views and fun trails with good flow. The vegetation and terrain is dramatically different from the prior two rides. On this ride, above 8000 feet, all hint of desert is gone. Below 8000, some desert plants will grow where there is lots of sun exposure. Tomorrow, either a short ride or day off. I am getting tired.
