New Melones Ride 11/28/2008

Trail map here and US Dept of Interior Bureau of Reclamation site here.

Cleaning one of the wider switchbacks on the tower climb

Look at that concentration...

Carson Creek Trail, one of the "whoop-de-do's".

Trail hooks to rider's left, up and over that bump and through some large rocks. Don't miss the turn lest you tumble down the hill!

Climbing out a rocky portion after a small bridge at the beginning of the Frontier Trail.

The photo doesn't really give a very good appreciation of how steep this part is...

I think this is the top of the Tower Climb, a very gruelling steep climb with 8 or 9 sharp switchbacks.
