Cold, Wet, Colorful

With sub-par weather and conditions Adam, Ian, Johnny and Zak were still able to turn up the heat making it easy for Joel to capture these beauties.

Fall Fun

This afternoon was an event to be witnessed with Ian, Johnny and Zak having a blast whipping through the bare but bright forest. Even on a cold and wet Sunday this will be one of the days that stick in the memory bank.

Johnny leading Ian through Brakers, first take is how its done

Hot on the Trail!

 

Trying to disrupt the flow

 

Adding a few logs helped

Mt Eisenhower

Johnny, Aurora and Ian hiked up Mt Eisenhower Saturday looking for some good times and wild adventure.

This frozen waterfall was 2.4 miles up from the parking lot.

Edmonds Path, the trail we went up mostly looked like this. Litte bit of snow and ice.

Quick view just below the tree line.

Ian looking cold at the tree line.

Mt Franklin

Beautiful view Mt Franklin, Mt Monroe and Mt Washington from the summit of Mt Eisenhower

More views from the summit.

4,781 feet above sea level, 60 mph wind, -20 degrees! 3.2 mile hike one way.

Johnny protecting the cave! WTF

Trail Slayin’ In October

Shooting photos during the Fall season is pretty fun. Usually the trails are 100% dialed and the temperature is just right, not to mention the color of the trees gets totally wild.  The hard part is raking the leaves off the jumps and paths so the place doesn’t get bumpy. Raking gets real serious this time of year at the trails!

 You never had fun like this!

 Zak is back blastin the hell out of everything higher than everyone.

To the moon on the Trick Trail.

“Get Down from those tree tops, those jumps weren’t made to go that high!”

 Britton Stetsor is the badass of the trail scene. Look at those Sleeves!

Arethusa Falls in October

As you know Johnny and Aurora are quite the adventurous team.  So a mission to Arethusa Falls was no question after the heavy rain we recieved Friday.

Below Johnny and Aurora in the mist of the 220 foot high falls.

Aurora a little muddy.

The trail looked like this most of the way up the mountain.  Beautiful colors like you dream about!

Zak Is Back

Zak Early is back home after being gone all Summer long and hasn’t dug all year. Dude is the biggest turtle out of the trail building team. Oh well, we missed him and hopefully he will be digging a lil bit this Fall.

Below Zak with an OPPOSITE tabe bigger then most dudes do regular tabes.

Ian Bresnahan is a stuntage fool!

Johnny barely whipped out.

Fall colors are in full effect along with this X-up by Mr Herrick himself.
