New Endeavors

With all of Jackson's summer resources, i.e. the ability to easily rock climb, mountain bike or trail run anytime of the day, I've picked up some new hobbies. My most recent endeavor has been mountain biking. With a radical first experience with my friend Tina's clips, I wasn't sure it was going to be for me... But having purchased a bike and making sure to ride flats for a while, I'm quickly growing obsessed. This weekend we went camping near the Gros Ventre's on Shadow mountain and were able to get a few laps in on the downhill trail on Sunday. This was my first time on anything like that and I had a blast. I still find myself a little nervous and stiff, but hopefully I will quickly grow comfortable with my bike as I am with my skis. Here are some photos from the weekend..
