Ok, better late than never... I had a great time on this run. After just once, it's one of my favorites. Thanks everyone for making this a great run and thanks to Ollie for making it even more exciting than it would normally be! :o :lol:
We need to do this run again real soon!

I had a great time out there on Sunday doing this run despite my mishap. The company and the scenery was top notch. I have always referred to this place as the "Hidden Jewel". I want to camp up there some time.

Thanks to all of you for helping me out of that pickle. It just goes to show that when you get too comfortable you get bit. I was trying to catch up to the group and took the corner too hot and forgot that it was a tighter cut than it was. It bit me... :oops: :lol:

Great pics. I have some of my own and will get them posted up as soon as I get them processed and start feeling better.

If we only had a recording of your distress call.... :lol: That was some scary stuff, I am so happy you got out almost unscathed. Get well soon and thanks for posting up all the the trip report threads!
