South Mountains Game Lands, 3/24/19
Photos from an experimental adventure. We rode our mountain bikes deep into the South Mountains, most of the way to the top of Magic School Bus Falls. From there, I bushwhacked down a thousand vertical feet to visit the lovely Beautimos Falls recently documented by David Wester and Brandi Elliott. The bike ride was much harder than expected, and I was way behind schedule. I left the Falls at 5:15, but somehow we made it back to the car by 7:30. I don’t know how we pulled that off, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to walk tomorrow. The whole event was 13.5 miles with 2,700’ of elevation gain. I can’t tell you how much of that was riding a bike, pushing a bike, hiking, or bushwhacking.
