McDowell Mountain Trails

This afternoon I logged 2.5 hours on the Pemberton trail network at McDowell Mountain. Besides the Pemberton trail I also rode the Tonto Tanks, Stoneman Wash, Bluff and Scenic trails. The weather was perfect: Sunny skies with temps in the low 70's. Yeah, this is how winter should be! Tonight we had dinner with my brother's father-in-law who just happens to own a little bike shop in Scottsdale. In addition to knowing a thing or two about bikes, he also has some skills with a grill and cooked up some mean Porterhouse, T-bone and Ribeye steaks. After 2 days and 6 hours of riding I was up for some serious protein consumption. Paired with a great salad and mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, biscuits and grilled veggies it was a sweet spread. There's no better way to end the day than with a good meal and a long soak in the hot tub.
