Crystal Creek Ride 9/25/2011



It was a beautiful fall day, a little on the hot side. Only three people showed up, Eileen Taylor and the two Cheryl's. Too bad, because when we got up on the top of the ridge, we all saw a lynx. Of course, he was moving too fast to get a picture but we all saw him. Cheryl II reported it to the Forest Service. They reported to her that it was a first sighting of a lynx in the Elkhorns. A great thing to happen on the last ride.

A sign. Maybe we can figure out where we are going.

Taking a picture and taking a picture.

Trail sign

Okey, but it still didn't help tell us where we were.

Where ever we were, it was very pretty with all the fall colors.

This must be something good or complete BS.

Apache also relaxing.


He looks so cute he got two pictures.


A big thank you to Eileen Taylor for all the hard work she has done this year to plan out rides. Weather, funerals and other events sometimes interfered with the rides but that certainly was not her fault. A round of applause for her for a successful ride year.
