A Good Weekend & the first snow up on Gingercake


Friday night I camped with Johnny Calhoun off of the FS Rd on the way up to the parking lot at the base of Table Rock. We found a site right off of the road and only had one car pass our camp the entire night.
It was cold and the first thing we did was start a fire. The snow started shortly after we got there. As you can see by the next morning we had a nice layer.

Sunday I met up with Obie, Kyle, and Robert Peerson for a MTB ride. Raspberry Ridge to Greentown Plunge, Chestnut climb to Bee Hive. A fun ride.

Halloween

I parked at Wilson Creek and started with the Small Spike - up and back on Lower Wilson Ridge. Then I climbed up Craig Creek Rd to the pass, Birthday Knob, onto summit Chestnut Mtn (the Big Spike) then back down and onto the Big O & FS Road back to day use only Wilson Creek.
Below is my campsite up on Chestnut Mtn. Based on the wood under the tarp, I was the last to use it when I did my bike in camp weekend.
Near the end of the BIG O, its all downhill from here:
I got in close to 20 miles, more or less, then I headed home and got the family together for a little trip up 181. Time for some family fall shots:

Picnic at the Barkhouse
A good way to spend Halloween!
