I was on it the next morning at 7:44. I rode through all of the clouds depicted in the next few photos. The bottoms were cold and foggy.

I did the liason section through Sugar Run, Green Valley, Eggleston, Clover Hollow, and Screwplow to get up to Mountain Lake.





Mountain Lake Road has about 5 miles of freshy fresh.






The Butt Mountain Loop is full on enduro special test now.







Until next time.
