Forest City interlude

The smoke from hundreds of fires had the California sky saturated. It was a perfect time to escape to the mountains for a breath of clear, cool air. At 4800 feet, Forest City was above the funky atmosphere. Lisa put out the call for trail builders and anyone looking for some fun work and groovy riding. Two others from the Bay Area showed up, Joy and Eric. Dan, Brad and Zack formed the rest of the trail crew for the day.
