|half the trail is now in the river|
I sucked it up and loaded the bike anyways anticipating a return trip home with my tail between my legs after getting half way through Mill Creek. Within five minutes of riding my legs were screaming and everything else was wanting to give up. Then a funny thing happened, I started to feel great. Being surrounded by trees, being on some good singletrack, and being on one hell of a fine bicycle quickly changed the way I felt. Mountain biking has a funny way of doing that.
I got to see all the trail damage that was caused by the river misbehaving. Anything low to the river will need work as there is significant damage to some sections. With tomorrow off I may head to Fort Saskatchewan to see how bad things are there. I`m guessing things are ugly...
