Bell's Mountain Trail

Team WRECK made it to Bell's Mountain for the first time on Sunday. This was Dabby's legendary "swimming hole trail" and it proved difficult, painful and rewarding. We completed a 7.2 mile out and back with a short spur to Clear Creek Campground. So ~15 miles took us 4 hours 3 minutes. Either we're getting slow or this was a hard trail. We spent a lot of time walking on the ups but the downhills more than made up for it.

It's too bad this photo is all misty or foggy, it was a good capture of Drew endoing into a puddle. Hey Mary Lou, can you do anything with this in photoshop? Maybe add an outline to Drew's figure and increase the contrast or something? It might make an ideal Team WRECK logo.

Drew dropping in.

Dabby looks scared here, and he should be. Like most of the trail this section was steep and had lots of rocks and slippery roots.

These are not bicycle tracks. Violation!

While waiting for Dabby at the top (he rode up saying "mechanical, mechanical" which I think is code for "out of shape") Drew noticed this huge pile of logs which he theorized might be the work of Giant Land Beavers.
