Happy Trails

We hit some new (to us) trails today - Soapstone Prairie. It seem like we hit it right about the perfect time too. A couple weeks later and everything would be golden and windswept.
Over to the left is Wyoming. The trail takes you up to a ridge with a nice overlook. Pretty amazing considering how 'out in the middle of nowhere' this trail feels.
Lots o kittie litter gravel around the corner. You had to get used to the tires sliding. It was like riding a hovercraft - never feeling like your tires were fully engaged. Here's Kurtie banking out of a dip.

Some pretty sweet views to be had.
Yours truly - enjoying the cool breeze on top of the ridge line.

Ben - showing us how to truly enjoy the post ride beer.

But one of these things is not like the other. Kurtie says there's a new trick called 'icing' somebody where you expose a Smirnoff Ice (like above) and the person who sees it has to drink it. I think he was perhaps trying to pull one over over on me - but I had to oblige (much to my dismay)

I was rather embarrassed when a fellow rider rolled up and I was drinking the 'Ice".

A good day indeed. When you get a chance, head north of Ft Collins and ride the trails at Soapstone. Just make sure your buddies aren't packing any Smirnoff Ice.
Thanks for the good times Ben and Kurtie!
