What strikes the most from last weekend's adventures are the contrasts: the contrast between lightly used trails and heavily used trails, between big groups and small groups, between mountain bikes and running shoes, between fast and slow, you and me, us and them....
Jeremy was in town which was cause enough for celebration that I got invited out on a good old fashioned Heartbreak Ridge group ride. Jeremy used to live here and was perhaps the original Pisgah blogger and was a big inspiration to myself and many others. Now he lives in the Colorado and does even more mind blowing stuff out there. It was a ton of fun to ride Heartbreak with him and eight others.
Sunday was runday and the dogs got to come along as well. We stuck close to home and from the Turkey Pen trailhead did:
Turkey Pen Gap > Wagon Road Gap > South Mills River > Cantrell Creek > Squirrel Gap > Bradley Creek > Riverside > Vineyard Gap
A moment of hilarity ensued when we had to check the map to decide which way to go at the Squirrel/Bradley intersection.
