    Time for another Mt. Scott ride, who is up for it? This time, we are probably going to ride Mt. Scott for a few hours, and then go to a place called valley of the boulders. Josh says this place kicks even more ass than Mt. Scott, though I'm not sure that is possible. Any Austin guys gonna be able to make it this time? Anyway, here are some directions in case you have never been there before.

    From Dallas-take US Hwy 287 north to Wichita Falls, and I-44 north to Lawton. In Lawton, take Hwy 62 west through town. About 9 miles out of town is Hwy 115. Take 115 north four miles and you are at the Refuge. Or you could just drive on I-44 to Hwy 49 (exit 45) and head west to the Refuge.

    We will most likely meet at the top of Mt. Scott between 9:00 and 10:00 AM

    When I said warm up, I just meant to above freezing temperatures so it wont be snowing on us. Riding in snow wouldnt be bad, but riding while it is snowing could get ugly.

    Are any guys from Austin or other parts of Texas going to make the trip?

    got my carbon lever in...im in for sunday. valley of the boulders is a bit of a hike from the beaten path, but it will blow your mind. it would probably be safe to brink a backpack with water/snacks. im not shitting...granite boulders as big as your whole house just lying around. you can walk underneath it all and not see daylight.

    Well, today totally sucked. I hope you dallas guys didnt get all the way to Lawton before you realized that the weather was going to be HORRIBLE. Josh and I arrived at Mt. Scott and realized that it was gated off to cars. We waited til about 9:30 for you guys, then went and explored the valley of the boulders, without bikes I might add. After a 90 minute hike, we headed back to the base of Mt. Scott and decided to go riding. After about a half hour of slipping on moss-covered rocks, we headed back to Norman. What a horrible day...
