    After missing Saturday's AT ride due to our cake tasting appointment I decided to head up there this week. And yes the cake tasting was not an excuse. It was real!20160109_113012.jpgI had planned on riding it later this week but we got some more rain here yesterday so I decided to head out there where I knew the conditions would be perfect. Got to the parking lot around 10 and got ready to roll.20160111_100909.jpgSeeing how I was by myself there wasn't much chit chat to be had other than the voices in my head. Temperature was around 50 when I started and would get much colder at the top. Parts of the trail were already drying out but towards the top it was still moist with a little snow at the end of the trail.20160111_121600.jpgDidn't stop much along the way and only took a couple of photos. Here is a photo of the trail from the very top.20160111_121908.jpgAfter snapping a couple of pics I headed down. I made sure I took it relatively easy since I was alone. Pretty much rode nonstop back to my truck. Overall it was a great ride but not as fun when you go it alone. Screenshot_2016-01-11-14-58-11-1.png

    Scottay had already been bumped to second. I wanted to keep the KOM in the IMTB family.

    Thanks for the pics and RR! Looks like the snow is just about gone at trail's end. That's great 'cuz I want to get up there to clear some brush this weekend. BTW, I'd go with all chocolate! Cake, filling and icing! Can't have too much chocolate:thumbsup:!
