New Fane and Greenbush Fat Biking

I got a chance to explore a couple of Wisconsin mountain biking trails on my fat bike today. All told, I did about 16 miles of single track between New Fane and Greenbush. I will say the rocky kettles of Greenbush had me wishing for a suspension fork!

A little guy I found along the New Fane trail.

Tree down at Greenbush. Perfect time for a photo break.

Lots if leaves at new fane

Got a little mud on the tires.

Sapphire Point Hike

This was our first hike in Colorado. We picked one of the easiest in Summit County. The Sapphire Point trail is a simple loop trail that is less than a mile, but provides some amazing views of the Dillon reservoir and the surrounding mountains. The kids loved this easy hike, and it was a great way to start our Colorado hiking as we would find out that night that Nikki was suffering from altitude sickness.

The Sapphire Point Trail

I took my DJI phantom up for a spin after the hike and discovered some beautiful, winding bike paths and roads. Seeing a place from the sky allows you to appreciate it’s beauty all over again!

Parnell Tower Hike

Got to go on a hike with Teva this afternoon at Parnell Tower. We hiked the 3.5 mile loop and stopped and snapped a few photos as well. Part of this trail merges with the Ice Age Trail. I’d love to come back here and backpack this part of the trail. The area is actually quite hilly (for wisconsin) so we got in a good workout. We didn’t actually go to the top of the Tower (I’m not much on towers) and since the kids weren’t along (they love towers) I didn’t have much motivation too 🙂
