Downhill Riders

Went on a downhill mountain biking trek starting at 4875m above sea level. The trek road was bumpy but the bikes had good suspension. Weather was fantastic but on the way down we got totally soaked as the clouds shifted and dumped on us. Made the road a bit treacherous but that just added to the adrenaline rush. The other rider that joined me was from Toronto, ironically... have not met many Canucks on this excursion. He was travelling South America for a month and then going back to TO for a week, then joining a friend of his to venture out to Vancouver for a new career and work the Olympics next year.

The mountain across the valley is El Misti... a slightly active volcano still.
