Please use caution when riding in Ash Canyon on windy days! We’ve witnessed the skinny burnt trees in the picture below falling from across the canyon. We were wondering what all the crashing noises were, and then when we neared the edge of the canyon, we saw a few more trees fall. Crack! Whump!
Today we rode the creek trail, and one cracked right above our heads. I was just starting to wheelie over a log crossing when the CRACK! sound exploded in the trees behind me. Both Jon and I thought for sure that a giant bear was charging us. The tree didn’t topple over, but from the sound of it, it was pretty close!
