Otero Canyon. In February?
Yeah, that's the state of affairs round here, a blessing and a curse.
Seems the snow has melted off the trails up Otero already, giving us mountain bikers a refreshing change of pace. Hence our blessing.
But the snow has melted off in February already. Hence our curse, if you like your forests open and wildfire free come summer.
As for me, I'm just now recovering from the one-two punch that is the worst headcold in the history of Man, followed by back-to-back kids soccer tourney weekends.
Both of which left me bandy-legged, lungs rattled on my usual climbs.
Still, it is February and my trails are open.
Happy Oteruary everyone!
