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.
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.
