The dirt between Ashwood and Donnybrook is an awesome and fast (60-70mph easy), smooth and non dusty sweet dirt road with not a speck of gravel to fuck it up. I expect by Summer, though, that the dust would be thick. But in February, it was packed tight and clean.
I didn't get any pictures until Donnybrook, that road was that good.
Don't expect much from Donnybrook, all that's left is the schoolhouse, with somebody's "this generation" home right next to it.
Into the next gully past here, I started to notice the old dead Junipers were all dead and fallen down, all fallen in the same direction, like they were BLOWN down, all at the same time....
It was kind of bizarre, and this went on for several miles.
Uprooted from shallow roots, and all blown down the same direction.
There's a story there that I'd like to ask some old-timer about someday over a beer
The road is great through this stretch, fun and twisty, as I get to my first of three creek crossings.
This creek was small, and still a little frozen on the edges, but easy
After a few more miles, I stop to look back at the sweet road I just rode....
