Well, needless to say Saturday was supposed to be a several hour ride that turned into a 6 hour ride. It was one of those days on the mountain bike where the weather is great riding is beautiful but luck just doesn’t always go your way. I was reconing a route with a friend and we got out 3+ hours and thought we were on the tail end of our ride when the trail (that the map said connected) suddenly dead ended… This left us with one option, turn back. The day ended up being 6 hours long with nearly 2.5 hours of hike a bike because of terrain(jeep roads tend to be that way). Water ran out at approx. 4 hours and after that you’ve got nothing else to do but grunt through it and get the day over with. What an experience and I learned that St. Mary’s falls is BEAUTIFUL!
