It was very beautiful. A few miles in, there was a lake, and then the trail continued along a creek. There were many dams and chewed aspen trees, but I couldn't find the beaver. Many squirrels and chipmunks though. Chipmunks are really cute, they make this repeating chirp, that is even funnier when the mocking birds mimic it. After that, the trail went through several varieties of forest, still climbing into the mountains. I crossed many streams, over wood bridges -- too many to count. This ended up being possibly the best mountain biking trail I've been on, it had everything. I took a lot of pictures and put them up here:

Now, twenty or thirty miles later, I be ded. Can't even think in complete sentences. Was fun. Tomorrow, I think maybe I'll sleep a lot.
