Weatherman's Draw Mountain Biking

Spent another weekend in Billings biking. This time we decided to ride Weatherman's Draw. This was a very cool and interesting trail. It didn't feel like Montana at felt more like Vernal, UT or Fruita, CO to be honest. Its close to Bridger, MT with lots of camping and solitude.

This trail had lots to offer including fun singletrack....

(Claire decided to walk this section. Its hard to tell but the trail narrows to less than a foot with a long fall on her left.)

...great views at the top....

...some fun "chunk" to play on....

...and a great pub close by. We found the beer to be cold and the free ribs (on football Sunday's) to be delicious.

There is also lots of old Indian paintings out on the trail on random rock walls. This is really an amazing place and one of my new favorites in Montana. Mix it up with Zimmerman Trail (I, II) in Billings for a perfect weekend.

Lewis and Clark Caverns Halloween 2009

The Caverns have been riding great. A few from Saturday of last week. We had it all to ourselves though we did run into an old friend in the parking lot gearing up. Fun Halloween day.
