    Default Red Elephant - Bill Moore 6/19



    Made a run up Red Elephant to Bill Moore lake and then down Bill Moore with Tyler (Riotcake) and Louis (78BJ40). The climb up Red Elephant was kind of soft and a bit muddy from the recent precip - made it a bit more challenging with less traction and more wheel spinning. On the way down Bill Moore, we went down the 'chutes' and there was a big boulder that seemed to find its way into the middle of the trail - put the sliders to use on a couple of the rigs. Would have been difficult to go up.

    It was nice to get back on the trail after a few months hiatus. Red Elephant was definitely on the more difficult side of the trails I have run. The mud really made it challenging. But we made it with no broken parts! Had a blast!
