We’re back in AZ after wrapping up a great summer in Spearfish, SD. The new house worked out even better than we could have imagined. Looking back through these photos the start of summer feels forever ago. We did lots of family hikes and playing in the creek with friends along with quite a few house projects.
The summer was capped off with the annual Dakota Five-O, best race / party of the year on one of the hottest days of the year this time around! I’ve been struggling with a hamstring injury, but it was still fun to ride. Evie raced single speed and had a great day. It’s pretty awesome to roll from your door to the start line in less than a minute.
Now that we’re back in AZ it’s full steam ahead working on the 4 enduro races that the MBAA has planned this fall in addition to preparing for the winter/spring XC series. If my hamstring gets better I will likely jump in and race the C4 in Cave Creek, one of the most fun races in AZ with a great post race party as well and close to home!
A few Summer Highlights:
- Driving in Uncle Gil’s Model T in 4th of July Parade in Belle
- Tubing the Sand Creek River with the Hansen’s
- Hammocking by Iron Creek

- Many evening fireside chats by the Solo Stove with friends and neighbors
- Another Dakota Five-O in the books
Enjoy the photos.
