Dinosaurs Taking Over

I was changing a flat, when Mooch spotted what I think was some sort of prehistoric animal.  He managed this picture of the savage beast.  We got away, no thanks to my super SLOW skills of changing a tube.  Little did I know we would encounter another reptile down the trail, a big black snake.  Being that he scared the crap out of me I decided not to stop to hang with Big Black.

After I split from the group yesterday I was descending Vista when I became engauged in a face to face stand-off with what I beleive was a rabid skunk. I locked up my brakes when I spotted it trotting up the trail straight toward me. I yelled. It kept coming. I threw a stick at it. That didn't phase it either. By this time the skunk was closing in on me fast(like 20 feet). I grabbed my bike, turned around and hauled ass back the way I came, then stopped just past a 3 way single track intersection. Then I watched as it popped around a corner and turned right, onto the trail I wasn't riding and continued on it's way. I'm sure this skunk was either rabid or just simply wacked. I couldn't help but to think of the honey badger while this was happening!

Did you guys happen to have your Camelbacks filled with up IPA's on this ride? Hahaha

Wow! I was on the same ride and didn't see any of that. I did see a lot of mushrooms that were the size of small plates. Perhaps you guys tried some of those!?

Howard said...

Ah hah! That's it! HOTDOG, I knew we shouldn't have eaten those Fly Amanitas!
I love your profile pic by the way!

isn't mountain biking great. You learn about the local creatures, get the crap scared out of you and get to eat those great mushrooms!
