    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.

    Rocked in this gap. Had become impossible to ride as all the dirt eroded away

    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.

    Typical view on one of my local shreds: Hawes. (Yes, that's a sliver of water just above my handlebars. Granite Reef Dam on the Salt River.)

    Here's one from each day last weekend. Can't let Mikie have all the glory, I'm back to real rides too!

    Tahoe, climbing up to Monument pass. Got my ass kicked by elevation on that ride
    IMG122502.jpg

    Clear Creek trail from Spooner down to Jacks Valley Rd was just completed. Pedally descent but nice xc ride
    IMG_192545.jpg

    Grouse Ridge gnar. Might be my new favorite riding area
    IMG142258.jpg

    Downieville classic lap
    IMG123207.jpg

    Checked out the completed singletrack off Mills Peak
    IMG_162811.jpg

    Climbed up to Sierra Buttes lookout and then took legal PCT over to Jamison Cr to Graegle.
