Whitney and I went on an awesome road trip down to Palm Springs, CA after finals week. We stayed with her family down there and did some amazing hikes and relaxed a lot. I also got out on three rides, two of which were really scenic in the San Bernardino and San Gorgonio Mountains. Stage 2 of this year's Tour of California will finish in Palm Springs, but otherwise I wouldn't call the place much of a cycling destination. The winter hiking options are unbelievable though!

On a less positive note, I ran into a tree and hurt my shoulder about a month ago and I am still recovering. I missed a couple weeks of riding and some early season races, but I'd say I am about 90% healed up and can mountain bike with almost no pain now.
This weekend will be my first race of the year at the Beacon and Legs, the second round of the Fat Tire Revolution Series. The race is at Beacon Hill in Spokane and brings back nostalgic memories of my very first mountain bike race way back in 2004 at age 16! I look forward to returning to the course after nearly a decade away.
