Tahoe is mountain bike (and skiing, climbing, hiking, trail running) heaven (... why don't I live up there?) BTW, for those who haven't been... Haus von Fat is big time... as in the majors. Well done boys. That place rocks, thanx for hosting us!
a quick recap of the weekend activities:
Fri: After a short beach time at Kiva Beach, Toro and I rode Hawley Grade to Toads to HvF.
Sat: Barrett, Metres, Hauser, Toro and I did a similar, longer ride.
Sun: the Metres and the Kuwabaras went up to see the Galbraiths at Sugar Pine Point.

|Somewhere on Toads... it almost looks like Toro is on a uni|
Toro killing it down the most technical section of Toads...
|Sat... Barrett "the steam roller" rollin' over/through/past boulders like it's his second job...|
|meanwhile... at the beach... it was bum tanning time.|
|Metres, making the leaves look pretty...|
|a gif from Barrett... this was the most colorful section of the ride. The fall colors were going off!|

|at Armstrong pass we took a quick break to loosen up before our downhill|
|Upper Corral trail has some fun features... Metres riding granite|
|And Lower Corral has some big features... here's Toro NOT going for it and hitting the smaller feature.|
|back at HvF, D was cracking Sierra up...|
|and vise versa|
|Ol' Unkle Funkle tweaked his back sitting in his office chair... so he skipped the ride. But he did some yardwork and rode the uni instead! Woohoo...|
|we all stayed outside as there was tension inside... Kimbo's Tigers were losing... and you need to keep some distance between you and a scary tiger...|
|Kai showed me around on some of the local trails...|
|right back to his favorite log ride... which was his train track with a station in the middle.|
|we all turned into vampires and started feasting...|
|Nikko was happy to be back at the beach for the 3rd day in a row! Didn't take any pics, but hung out infront of Hellman's Mansion at Sugar pine Pt.|
