This weekend was the Ride the Keweenaw Weekend. Things kicked off wit a social and a movie at the KBC on Friday night. Then on Saturday there were guided rides at the Michigan Tech Trails, Maasto/Churning Rapids, and Swedetown trail systems. Saturday ended with a BBQ in Copper Harbor. Unfortunately, I could not participate in any of the goings on as I was down in Baraga for a kayak demo/expo for most of the day.
On Sunday things were a bit different. Dan was out of town so Arni and I headed up to Copper Harbor in the morning with our demo fleet in tow. From 10-1 the Keweenaw Adventure Company was running free shuttles from town back up to the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, and at 1:00 the different groups headed out to ride the newly designated IMBA Epic Loop in Copper Harbor. I got one shuttle run in, and then headed out with the fast group on the Epic ride. The plan was to get ahead of the groups and then stop to take some photos… slowly dropping through the ranks so that I could try and photograph all of the different ability levels.
I have to say… I just wasn’t really feeling the camera yesterday. I felt like I was really struggling to get a good exposure in the woods, and my ability to focus on the subject was all over the place. Some of the focusing problems had more to do with what I chose to focus on rather than lacking the ability to focus… but apparently I was making poor choices. Anyway, enjoy the images and check out the Copper Harbor Trails Club website for more info and to offer your support.
