Here is a short video of one of my favorite rides in Marin. Tamarancho is a private trail owned by the Boy Scouts and requires a permit to ride. I recommend you go to Sunshine Bicycle to get a pass if you do not have one (sunshinebicycle.com/new/tamarancho-passes). Copyright 2012. All Rights Reserved. Mark Holmstrom.
Tahoe went from having a record winter dump last year (2010/2011) to almost nothing this year (2011/2012). I decided a bike ride was in order to show how little snow we have received in Tahoe. The difference is shocking. I hope this is just an anomaly and not a sign of things to come. This film was shot on January 14, 2012. I included some photos from the same day last year, January 14, 2011. Crazy. Copyright 2012. Mark Holmstrom. All Rights Reserved.
Six friends set out to climb and ski Mt. McKinley in Alaska. Denali is the highest mountain peak in North America at 20,320 feet (6,194 meters) above sea level. Our team included Mark Holmstrom, Jeff Gaillard, Jason McGowin, Conan Bliss, Kurt Weinsheimer and Phil Kerr. There are few things in life as fun as heading out on a major adventure with a group of friends. Long live the spirit of el rancho!
