    Wow! I'm not one to post many ride reports, but I'd like to share a bit of this past week with you all.
    I went to Crescent City CA to visit my Mother for her birthday. Yes mtbing was on the agenda as well. As I had never ridden there before I asked some locals for a good place to ride through the Redwoods on dirt. The answer was Repeatedly.... Go past the Elk Creek Casino. Ok so I googled the Casino, then searched strava segments in that area. I found a few short segments. One called Bald Hills Trail looked like the best option.
    I set out Monday morning in search of this Bald hill, and hoping for a selfie opp with the infamous Bigfoot .
    Right away I got pulled from the plan by the sound of sea lions in the distance. Unfamiliar with the area I just started folowing sight's, sounds, and smells.
    I'm just going to let the pics do the reporting for a bit.20160620_071927.jpg





    While exploring on Monday I got a couple gold cups. This set me to looking over where I had been and I created another segment "bald hill through paradise." I also decided there needed to be a Bald Hills Loop segment. So on Thursday I set out to do a quick ride to make the Bald Hills Loop segment. Again I was distracted by the Ocean.


    I did finally get to the trail head, snacked, drank, then set out on a mission. Here is a link to the Bald Hills Loop. I highly recommend this killer Loop. 10 miles of single track followed up with 8 miles of narrow 2 lane pavement following the Smith River back to the trail head. I might add that with 2 rides on this loop I saw 0 bikers 0 hikers and 2 cars. https://www.strava.com/activities/618521337/segments/15095087326

    Adding pics from multiple devices, without a computer is quite frustrating for me. Anyone with any tips? Not to mention the time.

    Here are a few pics from my Thursday ride. I didn't take any pics in the Redwoods on Thursday as I was strava hunting.
