Boulder, as some of you may know, has been having a hell of a winter. The normal high temperature on any average day in January is *normally* right around 45 degrees. Not this year. Starting on December 20th, we got winter with a vengeance - we've had 50+ inches of snow and average high temperatures around 20 degrees. Needless to say, we needed to get out of town.

We went from this...

to this, in just one short flight:

We rode, we drank beer, we rode some more, we slept. Here are some of the better pictures.

Here are Sarah and Natalie bouldering in the Tucson mountain park.

Mmmm. Tequila.

Riding up the climb to Charleau Gap. Sarah and I took our S&S coupler 29ers - it's really nice to be able to fly the bikes for free, though it is a pain to take them apart and put them back together.

Natalie on the Charleau Gap climb.

Sarah on Charleau Gap - that's Mt. Lemmon in the background.

Sarah, Eric, and Natalie on the "Secret" trail off Charleau Gap. Eric is on his 5" travel WW 29er.

Sarah near 50 year trail. What a backdrop!

Sarah riding near the Desert Museum.

If you value the skin on your arms and legs, do not try to ride up Elephant head!

Sarah is pleased that the Elephant Head ride is almost over!
