Yesterday I had the privilege of riding the Rim Trail from the top of Mt.Rose down to the entrance of the Flume Trail (about 20 miles total). It was by far the best mountain biking experience I have had to date. The view along a good portion of the rim is astounding! It is called the rim trail because it is literally on the rim of the mountain range. The view switches back and forth from the barren desert of the Carson valley to the blue Lake Tahoe Basin. Absolutely outrageous if you ask me.
The bike I rode came from someone I have been working for a lot recently. He is super nice guy and I have been helping him plant trees and such around his house. Glad I accepted his offer because there is nothing I would have rather done that day. Along the trail the man kept pointing out different photogenic sites. At what he called, “Kodak photo point number fifty five,” he made me stand on top of this rock and do the “victory pose” with the bike in the air! One for the fridge I guess.
Thanks for reading and don’t forget to go outside today!
