Friday filler post: photos and commentary from the last week.
Scott organized a team ride Saturday morning: North side of Suncrest to Alpine Loop and back over south side of Suncrest. A good warmup for the mountain bike race Monday.
What does fast look like? Here’s Pete at the top of the Alpine Loop Saturday. He won the Expert 30-39 race, the fastest category not called “Pro,” on Monday.

The Junkie family spent Sunday afternoon hiking in Corner Canyon. Lots of flowers, none of which I can identify without Watcher’s help, were in bloom.
I don’t know what lives in this nest but the neighbors undoubtedly are publicly outraged at its size but privately envious.
It won’t stay this green for long.
This cactus grows high in the rocks above Ghost Falls. Seems really out of place for a riparian area and makes me wonder how it got there. I’ve not seen any other cacti like this in Corner Canyon.
The Junkie children.
Here’s the victor, resplendent in team kit at the top of the Alpine Loop yesterday. Rick’s rule: if you’re in full team kit, it better be a race. Duh.
Aaron, Nick, and Elden. See? I told you he was bluffing.
