Video: riding the skinnies at the MN River Bottoms

It’s suddenly summer. Last Tuesday we got 6 inches of snow here in Northfield but by Friday it was 65, yesterday 70 and today near 80.  The  trails along the MN River Bottoms dried out in a hurry so today I spent a few hours on the segment between Hwy 169 and 9-Mile Creek.

I captured some video of me riding a few of the log skinnies there and edited them into a 2-minute video, including two of my many crashes.

There are evidently lots more logs down there I’ve yet to find, as evidenced by this blog post with many videoclips by Heath Weisbrod.
