Jefferson National Forest and autumn.

I got some chores done Saturday morning and headed up. Traffic on 77 was craaaazy, and the trip took an extra 45 mins. Still, I got there in time for a quick loop before sundown.

My fire was a complete failure. Good thing it wasn't too cold.

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.

There used to be a chairlift at the top of Big Walker. I assume it was for the view because I don't see any kind of ski run.

Through my own laziness, I became heinously mired in mud on Hogback Ridge.

No Business

Nom nom nom nom nom. I found some places that warrant further exploration along this route.

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.

Cela est comment nous roulons.
