1st trip
Met up with Lee at Mormon TH at 5:30, and headed up Mormon Trail. There were a few people on the trail, but not too many. Headed west on National, plenty of bikers on there for the first mile or so, then nobody after that. From Buena Vista, we took National over to Holbert, then up to Dobbins. Dobbins was packed with way too many people--all noisy--so we only stopped there for a few minutes, then headed back over to Buena Vista.

I have been on Geronimo exactly twice in my life, the most recent being fifteen years ago, and I knew to watch for the turn to stay on Geronimo and avoid the boy scout camp. I even downloaded the track because I knew I probably wouldn't see it in the dark. Then, of course, we're cruising downhill, and I was suddenly like "S^&*^$%$%%*&, we're not supposed to be behind these lights, we missed the turn." Luckily we hadn't gone too far (edited for Lee's benefit--it was about 0.4 miles, total of 0.8 miles extra walking ;) ),but still had to head back uphill to get back onto Geronimo. Made it back down, then across a couple of neighborhood streets to get back to the cars.

Super nice night. The weather was perfect, cloudy & breezy days are always my favorite. Heard a lot of coyotes while on Holbert, but didn't see or hear much else.
