    Sierra Solstice Video

    Here is a slideshow of video clips from summer solstice ride to Signal Peak, Fordyce Lake, Sterling Lake, a nice granite slick rock trail to Mossy Pond, Upper Lola Montez Lake, the aftermath of a maybe 6ft high side fall onto granite slab ( arm, elbow, shoulder armor and helmet took impact, I am a believer now) and some scenic single-track. Video is a little long but has lots of variety

    Ride was June 21st, not 14th.

    Great video! Thanks for sharing it with us. You have some beautiful, rugged terrain over there. Glad you are ok after the high side.

    Very nice footage, Fred. Like the music choice too. Golly, I really like the part going to Mossy Pond!

    You know I would Fred but my JET is in the cleaners

    Nice video Fred , Nice to know the trails are the same and the rocks are exactly where I left them . Now if I can borrow that caravan or get the Caribou started! I might make it.

    Great video of some very beautiful country. With all those gorgeous small lakes, it looks like a fisherman's paradise. Thanks for taking us along!

    I used to cary a telescoping rod and reel to catch and release 'lil trout on my rides but last few years just ride from one lake to a other without fishing which is usually not good during mid-day anyways. The bigger Fordyce Lake still allows primitive lakeside camping so I go there to car-camp and fish from kayak at dawn and dusk when lake is usually glassy calm.
    Say Greenbomb, you could have taken some of those rocks with you to Arkansas and left me a smoother trail to play on. Come get some with your Gulfstream. A float equipped Beaver or Otter could fly your TW right to the lake and we load up your rocks why you ride.

    Boy, that was a great video. You holding back video's? If not you need to make more. That railroad hut reminds me of a Maginot Line Bunker or something! I've never seen or heard of another like it, so it must be unique.

    Hope you're ok after the off. With all the rocks available to you, I'm not sure if you would have had a safe place to land anywhere on this ride. Thanks a lot for sharing!
