MTB Buffalo Creek with Jeffrey

On Saturday we rode out at Buffalo Creek with our buddy Jeffrey. We parked near the Meadows Group Campground area, and then started riding on Gas House Gulch.
Phil and Jeffrey goofing off before we took Charlie's cut-off - 1.2 miles of simple wheeee!
Phil and Joey in the burn area on the Sandy Wash trail. The Hayman fire scorched this area in 2002 (over 138,00 acres were burned). As you can see, a forest doesn't recover overnight. This one of my favorite areas in the Buffalo Creek area, though, because you can see the cool rock formations.
Phil was trying to figure out my new camera - I tried to be a good sport.
An action shot of the biker guy!

We rode just over 17 miles, all but 3 miles on sweet single-track. We are blessed to live in a state which boasts some of the best recreational opportunities in the country.

Sunday morning we rode our road bikes up Lookout Mountain (24 miles round trip) and then played 9 holes at the Links course in the Lakewood, Colorado, Fox Hollow golf complex. Phil beat me soundly, darn it. I really need to find time for some short game lessons.
