Vacationing at the Arizona Grand Resort

Over the past weekend I went vacationing at the Arizona Grand Resort. I took my MTB and explored the surrounding area.

Videos of my ride: South Mountain, AZ.

Aliso Woods+Crystal Cove on 2012.07.27


Stair Steps:


You’d have to be out of your head to ride UP this trail. Who does that? It’s crazy enough going down.


Fence Line:


National Trail@South Mtn., AZ

If everything goes well, I’m going to try this somewhat epic ride while in AZ.

Mountain Biking on 2012.07.10 @ Snow Summit

Short trip to Snow Summit to ride the lifts and tear up the mountain.

Mountain Biking on 2012.07.10 @ Black Star Canyon

I moved the videos to my dreamhost account from Flickr. Flickr used to be a good company before Yahoo!. At least managing photos still works well.

Thank you Shopzilla

After 11 years of service with Shopzilla, I’ve finally decided it was time to leave and move on. No more 4am mornings. No more 2+hrs of traffic. No more LA period. I wouldn’t have done it for the last 7 years if I didn’t think it was worth it. But alas, I can do no more. It’s taken it’s toll on my and my quality of life. I can’t say that’s one Chapter closed, with that tenure it’s a more like a book.

Good Luck Shopzilla, I’m sure you’ll do well.
