With the power back on, it was out for 24 hours due to the storm, I thought I might check out the forest. My neighbor's son got a mountain bike for his birthday and I promised him I would take him riding with me. After a few starts and stops, he couldn't find his helmet, he needed a pant strap, and I had to put his water in my Hydrapak, we finally headed towards Upper Paugussett State Forest.
Riding down Tamarack Road we came upon this obstacle.
Heading to the Echo Valley parking area we encountered another obstacle.
The snow was pretty crusty and almost impossible to ride
I was able to pedal through it just barely and Bucky was having a terrible time.
We turned around at the gate and headed home.
