    Sweetwaters revisited

    A little rainy with a bunch of lightning tossed in but the view sure is great from 9000 camp overlooking base of Sonora Pass and the Marine’s Mountain Warfare training facility

    Boarder255, Adam-in- Nevada and I all summited 11,000 ft plus Mt. Paterson this afternoon with just a bit of wheezing from the bikes. Full fun day of lengthy challenging single tracks, water crossings and steep ascents. Blueberry pie, campfire and dinner and everyone seems ready for a nap.

    Looks like the clouds are having a party. Very cool.


    Turn the party lights down low


    Awesome!

    Admiral has also been there, maybe not quite the summit since were hiding from thunderstorms in a old mine shack at 11,000 the last Group Ride . We got chased off summit to the lower stone cabin by a bit of rain yesterday too. Awesome ride. Still lots of wildflowers too. Some impressive singletrackery too, may need a fall color ride here in the aspens down on the lower moist drainages

    Fun riding on what seems to be the top of the world if it wasn’t for the occasional threat of lightning.
    Fortunately there is an old mine office down a side canyon around 11,000 ft. that can offer a bit of shelter.
    Not perfect, building’s wall is trying to fall down the canyon creating some daylight. Still any port in a storm is probably better than hanging around a metal flagpole on the summit with a bunch of motorcycles.

    We came across two bicyclists fairly up high. I was extremely impressed until I realized they were electric assisted. Then I was only very impressed. The air is a little rarified up there for serious peddling. Usually fairly steep too.
