As I read this I'm looking at snow furies outside here in PA.  I feel a little better seeing that you are wearing a coat.
 
Great pictures.  Thanks for taking the time to share them.
 
I'm hoping it will be my turn soon.

Pics are not showing up on my laptop, but I have ridden Mt. Mag in the past and know it's beautiful.  Glad ya'll had a good ride.  The cool at the top of Magazine and Rich Mtn. are sometimes a welcome relief.  Got caught in a downpour on a hot July day several years ago in the Ouachitas and the 30* temp drop was nice.

Looks like a beautiful and clear day.  Do you know the elevation at the highest point?
