I met Zack on Reddit. He was new in town and was looking for someone who could show him around the San Francisco Bay Area trail systems. I was free, I was bored, I said "sure".
I was lucky enough to be able to take a week and bring my family to Durango, Colorado to relax and to ride some trails.

To start out my Durango mountain bike excursion, I chose to re-ride the only trail I was already familiar with; Twin Buttes.
I took the family on a quick road trip to Durango, and we stopped on our first night in Flagstaff, Arizona.
On Father’s Day, I met with my Brother-In-Law Rick and we rode through his Walnut Creek neighborhood hills on the mountain bikes.
A hot Summer requires occasional respites. We drove to Groveland, CA where we sampled the offerings at Exchequer Bike Park on Lake McClure. It was a fun and interesting day that was filled with some great downhills and great people.
In a feature that departs from mountain biking just a bit, I have decided to share my 2018 backpacking trip to Graveyard Lakes in the Sierra Nevada.
