Memorial Day adventure? Check

150 miles on a mountain bike? Check

15,000 ft of climbing? Check

Exhausted, sore, hungry, swollen, numb? Checkcheckcheckcheckcheck

Kokopelli Trail, self-supported, in three days? CHECK!!!!!

More pictures, stories, and snide comments on an amazing trip after I get a little sleep and perspective.

Dang my butt and knees hurt.

(one question I'm wrestling with and need to get out of the way: Who do I respect more? The mad beasts that do this in one day... or the simple genius who turns around after 45 minutes? Hmmm?)
