the last month of the year starts... it flew by so quickly, but for me personally it wasn't such a bad year at all. we can only hope 2021 brings some much needed relief to a battered mankind all over

the only thing I can do is get off and walk (been using 32s, 35s and 43s). So, was wondering if others with a lot of experience on the MTB side of things (I'm looking at you @bloaker ) can actually ride up (or down) something like this with the proper bike and tires? If so, what width tires would you suggest?
Wow! Not sure I'll ever have the skills or power to do that, but I'd sure like to be able to ride more of this stuff and walk less because walking these rock gardens for a km or two is slow going. Next time I'll put the Gravel King SK 43s on and see if I can't get a bit further. I'll have to buy another bike if I want to go much bigger than 45mm though.That looks doable on my gravel bike (700x45). It is about line choice more than anything.

This is the fun part of riding! However - My Fargo with 29x2.5 tires would eat this up!
