Took a few days off from TT to visit the Newberry Volcanic National Monument in southern Oregon.  Of course one has to get in some shadow practice no matter where you are.  So here is a clip at Lava Lands Visitor Center.  Please note the Aa lava flow and the large cinder cone in the background.  


Besides shadow practice I took a ranger lead hike through the Aa lava flow,  hiked up and around a small secondary cone in the main caldera,  hiked around one of the 2 lakes in the caldera, and paddled my kayak around the other lake.  The volcano is still active with hot springs feeding into the lake.

You are absolutely bonkers my friend Smile and most certainly your videos and banter are one of the highlights of this place for me. Definitely …mad as a bag of frogs ….but in the best way possible.

One tip which could improve you shadow practice … altitude training! …but don’t get too close the hot stuff up there! Not good for the life of equipment … !!

When you told me where you went, it didn't quite register, but now I realized.  That's a great local; there are all sorts of wonderful trails in that area for hiking or mountain biking (my preference).  And that cinder cone in the background?  That's the Lava Butte Cinder Cone and the bike ride to the top is how we separate the true mountain men from the wannabes.  Actually, I've seen people hike it, but riding is the way to test your limits.

No surprise that it's too cold there right now. Go back in July or September and it'll be much nicer.

Ironically. my wife is going to that area while I'm at Nationals.  So if I wanted to give up my pong play in Vegas, I could spend a week riding all around those lava lands.

Note: I have never tried shadow practice on a mountain bike, but maybe I will.
