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…
