Rode Flagstaff Hill (off of Salmon Falls) for the first time in 20 years. Back then, you passed an abandoned car at the summit. It used to be on the right side of the trail. There also used to be a 360 degree view at the top.

This is what it looks like now. You can only see part of Folsom Lake to the west.

To the east, you can see part of the Sierras.

This old medicine cabinet made some good noise when kicked around. You can hear it in my ride video, which I posted here.

The vegetation has grown around the abandoned car so you need to go to the right to pass it.

More mtb pics from that ride and others here.

I have a lot to learn about MTB, or maybe I'm just not comfortable on the bike yet. My brakes got a good work out, that's for sure.

from my local stomping grounds yesterday. Contour ROAM, bar mounted, bit shaky through the rocks but not bad.

Nice trails, jsi... they don't look quite as dry and dusty as most of ours up here. Are you doing Idyllwild?
