when the trees thinned out, we got into anywhere from 20-40cm of snow. a lot more than i'd hoped. both beautiful and fun, but tiring.
there were a few fantastic snowy downhills. easy scenic trails made more intense by the added snow, while at the same time, consequences for falling were quite low.

speaking of scary faces, check out ty's sweet shark expression. and zeke appears appropriately hapless. kylie made ty's costume by gluing white felt to a grey hoody and adding a dorsal fin. ty's still wearing it.

i was able to get out to vedder mountain a fair bit. taking advantage of late season fitness two friends and i decided to do a lap up and over the mountain. my typical run is the purple line. 4 hrs of beautiful forest riding and i didn't take a single picture.
our friend RJ took this picture from the peak while camping up there the night before. we met them coming down just below the summit after they had cooked themselves up a huge bacon and eggs breakfast. my kind of campers.
and we haven't even gotten to halloween (another beautiful night) or my last alpine bike ride or (today) ty's first mountain. that's enough for now, but there's more to come. october was amazing!
