dragon's back

NW to Cabezon Peak over Dragon's Back
Mid-winter blah's had me casting about for something different this weekend.

Headed out to the White Mesa, outside of San Ysidro.
rather steep penalty for failure

Dragon's Back turned the tide.
knife edge runs 4 miles
 New Mexico painted desert at its rugged finest.
final plunge awaits

My Dog, but it's beautiful out there.
and no, I did not attempt that drop
No country for old men allright.

Yeti's now, that's a different story.
schweet singletrack
1 OTB, 8 miles tread, 360d views.

Get on out there!


  1. I am not much of a bike rider, but that landscape looks pretty rugged. Great photos. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Loved this post, especially your photographs. I'm down in Las Cruces, was supposed to run a 50K trail race up there back in November and I'm no thoroughly disappointed I missed this terrain. Beautiful.

  3. thx Eugene! That looks very much like Cabezon on your front page- that right? Thinking you've been around, seen some things- you've a most excellent blog: the Pain Cave. Luv it!
