I rode the Loon Lake loop with my friend Mike from McCall on Saturday afternoon, and it was positively sweet!
Gorgeous colors springing forth, deep reds and yellows starting to pop. Really fast after the first long climb ... can't get too out of control, tho, got to watch out for other trail users. And on the Loon Lake Trail, you WILL run into other people on the trail - hikers, backpackers, motorcycle riders, mountain bikers, horses, Boy Scouts, you name it, I've seen 'em on that trail. On Saturday, tho, just a few hikers and bikers.
Topped it off with soak at Burgdorf. Yee haw.
