Part 6: The only constant in life is change. Sadly here in the Pacific Northwest change often manifests itself in the destruction of a beloved trail. This June we discovered that half our one of our favorite trails, "Lopes", had already been logged and was going fast. We came back that weekend with the camera and a fervor to get the most out of what remained. This is not The Greatest Video in the World, no.
this is just a tribute.This section is a tribute and a documentation of a wonderful and ancient trail. Creating this piece has eased the passing tremendously, however the logging continues. Let us all do our part to fight for, enjoy, share and preserve our magical wilderness areas.

2012 is an important year. To observe this turning point in human existence PirateRIDE has undertaken a special project to highlight where we're from in case it all gets taken out by a giant asteroid next December.
"12 Months From The Redwood Curtain" is a 12 part project, producing one section each month for the next year to share the flavor of rural northern California. No way to know yet where these sections will lead. Unscripted, unplanned, and unprecedented "12 Months..." is going to be an exciting journey into the riding of the north west backwoods.

Best,
