MCJ Fall Trail Ride

I have to say this was one of the most fun Fall trips we have had. We had a great group of people and awesome weather. We met up with most of the group friday before lunch at Taccoa Falls to check out a local landmark that I had never known about. Then we ventured over to Henderson Falls Park for lunch. Then it was time to hit the trail. I havent gotten all of my photos up, but here are some from our first trail.

with one trail down we hit pavement for a bit and started to our second trail of the day. I didnt get any pictures on it, but it wasn't exactly the "knee deep boulders" that a local described it as hahah. but it was rough and fun and we found a great campsite right where the AT crosses. We setup camp and had 2 Can jambalaya with cajun chicken and sausage, while some of the luxury wheelers in the group enjoyed steaks and crab joke. haha

Saturday morning we packed up camp and headed down the trail towards pavement and rode for a bit till our next trail. Its one of my new favorites in the area, I just wish there wasn't so much graffiti up there.

Staged at the bottom of the last climb on the first trail of Day 2.

this part of the trail looks innocent, but boy is it off camber. I was worried the trailer wasn't going to make it.

but we made it past that first spot and on to more off camber

At this point we found out that Ken had cracked the waterpump housing in his willys and was going to have to call it a day. We continued on up the trail since its an out and back and said we would meet him at the bottom.
it saves, but then doesn't show up on my computer when I try to open it. I have to search for the pic title to find it and then open it with something. It doesn't show anything in the thumbnail
