Laboring in the Mines

Took a wee ride on Crimson Ghost on a fine Labor Day Monday.

The Guadalupe Reservoir isn't sucking mud just yet, but it's certainly low. Technically my house is in this picture, on the far side of a few of those hills.

I wanted to do a little exploring through Almaden Quicksilver, named for the old mercury mines that used to operate in the area (the remains of which are still rusting away).

Normally I'd use BlackBirb for this type of ride, but I just rebuilt the brakes on Crimson Ghost so I wanted to give it a shakedown ride to make sure everything was in good working order.

Mission accomplished.
