Can't seem to post photos

I can't seem to post the photos I took on the ride.  They show when composing the comment but won't display.  Any ideas?

Trail conditions?

I know the Redstone crew took care of lower SSV and N Sourdough, but last I heard Little Raven and Upper SSV were not in stellar condition. Got any more recent feedback?

I got word there is really

I got word there is really only one big tree down on Little Raven, probably the one that's been there for a few years.

People have been working on Upper SSV and are going to be out there cutting again tomorrow so it shouldn't be too bad.

I anticipate there will still

I anticipate there will still be some downed trees on those two sections. I'm bringing a saw. This is mountain biking after all, not polly prissy pants biking.

I'll have a saw as well.
