Mountain Biking at Land Between the Lakes

The bucks Patrol of Nashville Troop 3 headed to land between the lakes in Kentucky for a weekend of mountain biking.

We stopped at the golden pond welcome area to get our backcountry camping permits. On the way in we saw these flying agarics which we had to stop and photograph.


We set up camp and headed out on the trail with the goal of riding 25 miles.


We stopped along the way to get a photo of this shelf mushroom, Libor is there to give perspective as to how large it is.


After about six miles we stopped to have lunch of summer sausage sandwiches.


Chippers chewed on his bone during lunch.

We also saw this very interesting fuzzy polypore mushroom.

I took an artistic photo of the sky through the trees for instagram.


We got back to camp around 5, but we were short of our goal, but did manage to do 15 miles, which a couple of the boys need for the biking merit badge.


We made some shepherd’s pie for dinner which looks like it is going to be delicious.

Chillin’ at the dog park


We decided to come romp at the dog park again. It tends to be more rlaxing than walking around on the leash and the kids get to make some friends. We also drove through Shelby Park for the first time since the flood. The golf course is open.
I have also been messing around with some settings in facebook so I am interested to see if this automatically posts in notes.
It has been some time since I have posted on this blog. I guess I haven’t been feeling like sharing much. We’ll see if that changes. I have been focusing my energies in other places, specifically work and baseball. We have been doing some pretty cool things, but wp has not been my outlet. I think I have been putting a lot of photos from recent trips and what not to picasa.
Part of this is figuring out all of the things I can do with this phone.
Any way, I just felt saying all that.
