TA Report: Rocky Neck SP

Did the local quick spin around Rocky Neck,  Tad of snow "Dandruff" on the ground made it a little white and interesting..  Was windy and cold, but glad I went. Trails are definitely frozen and actually hit a few areas where the frost heaves have broken up the trail.

More bike tracks than foot or paw!!

Notice this place is starting to get really popular for riding now a days. There were more tire tracks in the snow than dog and foot prints which NEVER has happened in all the 35+ years I've been hiking & riding there. Think a group ride happened, guessing 10ish bikes by the tracks..?

lots of bike traffic, place is getting popular with the bike crowd!

Met up with Steve down in the beach parking lot. We kinda just tooled around the board walk at first and headed back to his truck as he needed a tad heaver gloves. My eyes kept watering and blurring my vision do to the cold so I wasn't feeling safe for any "real" MTBing. So we motored easy around the camp grounds BS'ing as much as actually riding. I was getting a bit cold and winded for some reason so I headed back to my van up the main fire road from the beach. Nothing too heavy but still a good time on the bikes! Better than sitting home staring out the window or watching TV!!
did the whole GPS thing too... see where we went...
