Past the Cherry Creek Ranch, I found gravel on the road, as I came to the John Day River
I mean really.
I paused there ^^^^ for a while and ate my sandwich.
And paused some more.
What a DAY !!
Sorry for rubbing it in, TP, but I'm still enjoying the journey.
I saw my first Humans just past here, a Rancher in his pickup with his dog in the back.
Not much here but a big bridge across the John Day, but I left the dirt roads behind, for a gravel road so smooth, that I had to brake test it to see that it wasn't pavement.
Frozen waterfalls were everywhere
This road led to Hwy 207 to Mitchell. A big, fast, empty two lane hwy.
MortimerSickle, Squishy, and I rode this Hwy just a week ago.
I like it.
It's about 3:45 now, and I'm ready for a real meal.
What does Mitchell have to offer? We passed right by it last week.
The "Little Pine Cafe" just opened this last weekend, and just got their liquer license last fall.
So a a glass of Cabernet and MONSTER BBQ Pork sandwich, it is, then.
Hwy 26 to home then. Sheeese. Packed snow on Hwy35 at NIGHT is another story.
I'm sure glad there's no traffic, here.
Home by 7:30pm.
Hot Tub !!
See y'all next week?
