    From that magical place known as Dragons Back. Don’t ride there as much as I should. Doesn’t fit the smooth flowy description; more of a "I ate my Wheaties this morning so throw it at me kind of ride". They’re all good though.

    Wow, that’s what I call gnarly! Everything in that photo looks spikey – the rocks, the trees, even the icy sky. Get many puncture flats on this trail?

    Gnarly is pretty much the right description for Dragons Back. Layers and layers of flat rocks that protrude out of the ground at all angles make it a an interesting but pretty hard ride. The ridge is about 10-12 miles long and has patches of this type of rock scattered throughout.

    Buddy of mine calls these Dragon Scales. I watch for those, but for some reason I don’t get any more flats there than other places I ride.

    We have rocks like that here in Colorado too, but without the decorative leaves and twigs. 😃

    CCR, is that some form of shale or slate rock? As a gemologist, I get interested in rocks and minerals like those in your pic. Still looks like some sick looking terrain to have fun on. 😄

    Mongoose, I don’t think its shale or slate. The lower slopes of that ridge have what we call shale. Rock that kind of delaminates into thin sheets when you hit it hard. The stuff on top is hard, more like limestone. Sorry, don’t know my rocks too well. Will have to ask my rocktomologist buddy sometime (did I just invent that word?). Rocks always intrigue me, wish I knew more about them. Some of Natures artwork.

    Dude,turn around,I think were in the same boat,hahahahahahahahahaaha.
    We have a place called Dinasour Ridge up at Dakota Ridge and somtimes when I’m up there I wish I knew more abut all that cool ass looking rock,especially where there are dinasour prints in the rock.Recently,they closed down the road that goes up and over Dakota Ridge to make it more tourist freindly and to probably help preserve the place as well since it is a huge tourist attraction.But man,somtimes I just have to ignore it so I can keep on riding,cant always have your cake and eat too I guess.

    I remember that trail at Bull Mountain. Ahhh, good memories.

    that was actually the connector trail from the horse parking lot up by bull mountain that runs over to the bike parking lot/one of the trailheads. short section, actually, but that’s why its so dished out: from alllll the horse traffic.

    edit:
    i didn’t take this one, but saw it under the newly added pictures and thought it was sweet!

    OK!! I finally had to throw in here:

    Our 30′ drop off a cliff into a transition at Santos. Right after hurricane season, so weeds were growing in. The 20′ and 15′ cliff drops are just right out of site to the right.

    My son getting his FR game on hucking a drop at our local FR trail.

    dude, your kid is throwing down! that’s intense!

    Your missing a whole lot of beautiful scenery bro. Especially up around WhiteFish. That is definitely Gods country up that way.

    Awesome, so you have ridden the whitefish area trails? Sweetness man! I mean, that trail is right outside of whitefish. which ones have you hit?

    here’s a shot of the sunrise in flathead valley as i was on my way to go riding:

    I have rode Big Mountain, Bill Creek, and a couple other ones in the WhiteFish area. I have also rode Lone Pine, and a few more over in Kalispell area. Wolf Creek Trail near BigFork. Emerald Lake near Bozeman among a few other places I do not remember the names. When I do go to Montana, I am normally in the Helena, Butte, to Missoula area to follick for Montana sapphire. I also try to go and visit a friend whom has a ranch up in Whitefish, MT when I am that way. If you have lived in WhiteFish, you may know of them. Michael & Pam Rozell, which own and operate the Potters Field Ministries Ranch near WhiteFish. I noticed from your blog that you are a youth minister, so thats why I mentioned the Rozell’s. Anyways, that is most definitely GODS country in that area. Amazing beauty![/quote:3htbekv6]

    right on, i’ve ridden big mountain, bill creek (which rules!!), lone pine, wolf creek (sweet tech stuff!) and others in that area! excellent riding!

    here’s a shot from wolf creek:

    i’ve got more photos of wolf creek up on the main album page:

    Thanks Goo and Mongoose for those Montana pictures. My favorite country is up in the Northwest quandrant. Thus far I only have ridden a little in Oregon, but use to work in Idaho and Oregon in pre-MTB days. It is truely Gods country (cept for the winters 😉 ). That country up around Libby looks like it would be good mountain biking, maybe not as steep as some of the other mountains in Montana or Idaho. Did a road trip around there a few years ago.
