We'll postpone spelunking a week or two; ability and desire to ride in the snow a must for this week.

Thanks. As I said, one never knows where these rides will end up. I had originally wanted to do some snow riding, but as always we change plans given conditions and general concensus. This was one of the best UAR rides to date, thanks for making it so! Next week? The Palisades, with a surprise...
