First Mountain Biking Experience

We went to Lake Chelan for Labor Day weekend.  It was our first time there, and we were so excited to check out this great vacation spot that we had heard so many great things about including where we stayed at Campbell's Resort!  

When we got there, we immediately checked out the view!  Holy Lake Chelan!  You are sooooo pretty!  I think I could get used to this place...

We brought our bikes with us too, because we had heard about these great trails you can ride just outside of Lake Chelan at Echo Ridge.  

We drive up this crooked gravel road for about 5 miles that snakes to the top of the mountain.  We found the Echo Ridge Trails!  We were so excited to get started!  

So we tried the Novice Trail first....The Tootsie Roll!  It was so much fun! The views were amazing! 

I was feeling like the Queen of the Mountain!  Like, "I TOTALLY got this"! 

Then we rode the Whoop Tee Doo!  Again, smooth sailing!  It was a beeeee-last y'all!  I was like, "oh yeah, I've so got this mountain biking thing down"!  

I kept singing to my FBP the Tootsie Roll song.  Do y'all remember this one?  I was driving him CRAY CRAY!!  It was great !

Then we drove a little further up the gravel road to the other trails.  I didn't bother to look at the difficulty of the trail.  I got this, RIGHT?!!! 

About 15 minutes later, I'm hanging by my toe nails off the side of a mountain!  My bike is dangling barely in my grip, and I'm looking at a vertical drop below me that I'm not sure I'm going to be able to live through without digging up some dirt with my knees.  

Fortunately I had Goose as my co-pilot!  HA!  I said, "talk to me Goose"!  And my fiance slowly talked me through getting down that vertical slope.  He taught me how to feather my brakes and ease my way down.  

I eventually finished "The Shoe" Trail...difficulty EXPERT!  Here is that proud moment... phewwwwwie!  Take THAT you ol' SHOE!!!! 

We did have a great time on those trails and at Lake Chelan!  What a beautiful place!  

We felt rested and relaxed after hanging by the pool and hot tub all weekend.  Look how tan we are!!!! Weeeee!  We can't wait to go back to Lake Chelan!
