Kirkwood Mountain Biking

 

IMG_4968 Spent another couple of days up in the mountains this last weekend.  Weather was perfect, as usual for this time of year.  We spent Saturday morning at a new spot we found on the Stanislaus River called New McKays Dam, some fun fishing and great swimming holes.  Luke unfortunately had a little trouble with the bacon for breakfast (right).  Sunday was the main event, however, who could ask for a better birthday present than a day of mountain biking at Kirkwood?!  Chairlift up and ride down singletrack all day, heaven…

    How did you Photoshop the bacon photo? From my memory the bacon was delicious, you are really handy with that computer and camera.

    You just wish you could cook bacon on the BBQ like a true Aussie. You’re almost there mate, almost…

    Teebs,
    For your info, they are not matching, mine is black and his is grey. His glasses are black and mine are brown, but thanks for your fashion comments. Maybe I should get a hot pink helmet instead?
