Cascade Drop 6.16.12

IMG_1398

Usually I am not an advocate of a shuttle ride and prefer to “earn” my down hill,… whatever.

Kristian, Keith, and I loaded up k-mans hybrid Civic and effortlessly ascended to the Cascade Drop TH. The start to the trail is immediately in your face steep, loose and fast, and that over the years have learned to hang on and ride it out. Since no effort was spent climbing. It was really nice to have all my strength for the awesome downhill ahead.

This dude was superfast. Even with use using a shuttle he climbed his way up and passed us on the Waldo section of this route.

I heart Williams Canyon!          Back in the day I used to hike many of the cave systems in this rare Colorado limestone canyon.
