The 1st link is to my bike ride.  Similar to the one I posted a couple of weeks ago, but after the horse campground (where the red line meets the road we veered off on a side loop that added 4 miles and 900 feet of elevation gain.  Total of about 4200 vertical feet of climbing.

The youtube is a small section that used to torture me.  Right where I come into the picture, which can't be seen all that well, is where I have been over the handle bars twice, over the side of the mountain once and had a couple of other crashes.  I can now ride it pretty well.  It was an absolutely beautiful day, although a breeze kicked up right when Bike Neighbor was taking the video.  His commentary is pretty funny, and some good terrain in the background at the end of the video.  It really pisses me off, because that section is about 10X harder than it looks on that video.  After I go around the tree there is a huge drop there that is a bit of a but clincher.  Also in the video, as I get close to the camera, check out the front suspension.  That is one thing that shows how rocky it is.

That's all I got.
