Monday was a great day for fun in the sun at Deer creek. Hot weather in '90s required frequent breaks in shade. Took some long, fun single track trails through the woods. Riding around Lyons lake and stopping to cool off with a splash or 2 of lake water. Steep hill climbs that were usually makeable in 1 try required about 3, due to the thick dust combined with loose rocks and ruts. Was cruising through manzanita and pine on trail 4 and I rode right into a gang of cows:scream: One of them went into the bushs but the other one just sidestepped right into the middle of trail totally blocking my path. It was a face off Ktm rider vs cow. I tried reving engine, throwing sticks but he was snorting and pawing ground. I had thoughts of the running of the Bull in Spain, and fremontguy running up a tree leaving helpless 300 to be trampled. It was hot so hooked a 180 and took trail 5. Cow won?
