The Angel Fire trip was a great experience. Two days of down-hilling and an Epic 25 mile cross-country ride over the mountains from Angel fire to Taos. The cross-country ride included 2500 feet of climbing and over 6000 feet of descending. We managed to somehow avoid the rain. We rode through piles of hail in one section of trail with thunder grumbling all around us. Friday night included one of the loudest most intense thunderstorms that no one slept through. We had 15 riders on the trip and 11 on the cross-country ride with no major injuries or mechanical failures. We are already talking about a trip to Moab!
