July 7 - 9, 2006 -- Tsali trip. I've finally gotten around to posting pics of our annual pilgrimage to Tsali this year. It was still just as beautiful as ever, and I took shots at the same locations as last year.
Our ride the first day was cut short when young Blaine caught a log sticking out into the trail crashed going downhill. He was in a lot of pain so we took him to the hospital and sure enough -- broken collarbone. #1 injury of cyclists. Heck you're not a mtn biker unless you've broken your collarbone at least once. I did the same thing last year, on the first day, at Tsali. Luckily that was the worst of it. But unfortunately that meant no more riding for him.
Things went smoothly after that. Even the girls got to ride one of the downhills - part of the Thompson Loop. We shuttled them to the top and they rode back down to camp. Then we did it a few more times.
Here's a couple of video clips and some photos for you to enjoy. The photos just don't do it justice - this is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
