    We had a pretty cool Photo Friday thread going for a few years over on mtbr, but it seems to have fizzled out lately. It was a great way to fuel the stoke for the upcoming weekend and share a snap or two from recent rides. It doesn't have to be an epic shot, just a shot from your ride.

    Here's a couple from a ride almost two weeks ago now, at Brown's Ranch in N. Scottsdale, AZ.

    My buddy, Seron, winding through the boulders on a new trail along Corridor B.

    Almost rode over this fatty, 12-14" long, on the same ride. Love seeing these guys out & about.

    When someone yells "SNAKE!!!", a rush of sheer terror blows in like a heat wave through the soul of most people.

    When someone mutters the word "lizard", nobody even bats an eye.

    Nice view from Josephine saddle. If you ride along that far ridge, you can eventually drop down to Acton on the AT :thumbsup:

    Here are some from y'day up on the Arizona Trail between Mormon Lake & Flagstaff. Windy AF out there, 30+ mph crosswinds.

    I love descending off the mesa into this small meadow tucked beneath the cliffs. AZT a few miles south of Flagstaff.

    That would be the grey bearded floopers and shredders of fireroads and uphill pursuits.

    But hey, at least that’s riding a bike. :(

    It is a rebirthing canal. Step through the portal and be reborn a new man.

    Just a shadow of a huge crack.
