These pictures are a composite of two rides on consecutive days in early December, focusing on a new section of trail off of Mike's Trail. As the pictures show, the weather was quite mercurial, but the trails remained eminently and sustainably rideable.

The meadow, with parts of the Telegraph Hill  climb and the Anasazi Descent visible on the horizon.

Looking downgulch from the meadow.

Looking toward the La Platas.

Climbing (climbing! I say) up Mike's to get to the payoff.

Aforementioned payoff.
