Our second annual summer road trip. Again we found our self in the pacific northwest...way cooler summer temps then at home, and destination mountain bike trail systems. This year we decided to check out the bike scene around Jackson and the Tetons, followed by Helena, MT.. Next we traveled west to the Bellingham area, that we had heard so much about. It did not disappoint, Mt Galbraith was insane, so many trails, all styles of riding including insane man made features, monster berms, gaps, jumps and table tops. Tiger Mountain just outside of Snoqualmie, WA was one of my favorites!! On the return stretch back to CO we rode some of Oregon's hot spots, finally finishing with some biking in Park CIty, UT. Kristin and I by the end of the trip biked over 400 miles of epic top notch singletrack throughout 5 states!
At the trips midpoint we were spoiled by our friends Dane and Kathyrn at they're beautiful homestead!! Plum Nelli
"Plum Nelli is a micro-farmstead offering farm-stays and creative retreats, with an emphasis on pure and simple living. We host an artist residency program one month out of the year and offer pop-up art, wellness and food events. We also host weddings, family reunions, and more..."
The boys were rock stars on this trip! Living on the road out of the van was a breeze this year... they are growing up so fast. Well almost a breeze... Henry the crab from Indian Island did get out of Liam's cage once and hid out who knows where in the van before we finally noticed him one evening by the slider door. Henry made it all the way to Bend, OR where he finally was put to rest by the McKenzie River :) Liam is already counting down the days when he can find the next Henry.
