Over the summer we spent some time at a spot we continue to return to just outside of Auberry, CA in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The Pa'san Ridge Trail is a 7 mile loop that ascends about 1500 feet of elevation and has great single track overlooking the San Joaquin River Gorge.
Most of our time on the trail is spent telling epic stories, singing, asking "would you rather" questions, eating, and repeating some of our families mantras. Mantras like, "don't stop until the job is done", "find your mountain pace" and "use your mountain step."
These are good days.
