Mr. Leh turned 30th this year, and we celebrated with a weekend of mountain biking the dirt roads at Big Bend National Park. Big Bend just recently started allowing biking on their dirt roads. Previously, cycling was only allowed on the paved roads and all mountain biking was reserved for the state park.
While it was still hot in late October, the higher elevation areas like Pine Canyon Road offered a bit of cooler weather. Ideal for shuttling, the roads are rugged and the views are fantastic.
