Beartooth Mountains 07

For about the past 6 years I have stayed out here for a week and have had a chance to really explore the area on my mountain bike. I dont see how the scenery can get much better. The Absoraka Beartooths Mountains are on the NE corner of Yellowstone on the border of Wy and Montana.



There are two rides posted here. I did the ride a couple of diffrent ways, the first day I got rained on wrecked and broke my rib. The second day was just picture perfect.





Start of the ride





Cruzin along lots hopin it does not rain





Somehow my front tire got wedged between the side of the trail and this rock

Ended up OTB and took a handle bar to my rib cage OUCH broken rib






Plenty of water features





Fork in the road







And the Downhill Begins





Mud kept clogging up my fork





And a quick wash to get the mud off and this completes the first ride





Perfect weather for day two!







Dank Trail to start off on





Every great ride requires a bit of Hike-A-Bike





WOW!





Not my best self timer shot





More climbing





Cruzin Along just blown away with the scenery







Time for a little break and siphon some crystal clear glaicer water





Getting close to the top





Start of day two downhill no mud this time!





Nice Shot Jay!







More DH Shots





The last part of the ride was all marsh around the lake but rideable





And the Final Stream Crossing



So I hope you enjoyed the show. I spent extra time trying to get good shots with my MTB Peeps in mind!
