2011 in review

I wonder how many blogs are updated as New Year's resolutions, never to be posted in again for the rest of the year?  Our goal is to be more diligent this year with our blog (considering it's been over a year since I've posted...), to keep friends and family who are "out of town" in the loop.

Unfortunately, my digital camera broke in January 2011, so pictures from February through June are mostly taken from my cell phone.  Bought a new (used) camera in July 2011.  Here's a memorable shot from each month:

January 2011: rode the Palm Canyon epic mountain bike ride twice in one day, for our birthday challenge

February 2011: IMBA trail crew work day and ride at Sycamore Canyon, Riverside, CA

March 2011: exploring the local trails around Redlands, CA

April 2011: Katie and I visited the California Poppy Reserve near Antelope Valley, CA

May 2011: Tour of California stage at Mt. Baldy, and a visit from our friend Jay

June 2011: fueling up for my first 12 hour solo mountain bike race

July 2011: visiting the Temecula vineyards with my mom

August 2011: exploring the trails at Crafton Hills near Redlands/Yucaipa, CA

September 2011: moonlight dinner/hike at Mt. Baldy

October 2011: our first visit to San Francisco, CA

November 2011: snowshoeing and hiking around June Lake and Parker Lake, near Mammoth Lakes, CA

December 2011: home for the holidays, St. Johns, MI

Happy New Year's and see you more often in 2012.
