We originally intended to ride Henry Cowell State Park, but with the time constraint of leaving at 8:00am and having to be back at 11:00am, the loop from his house was perfect - we did it in 2 1/2 hours.
Supposedly, we're having another 4 days of rain, so it was nice to "get one in" before it comes down again.

Mud is good.
