Mouth and I took a quick ride down to Natural Dam for lunch via Pannell Rd. On the way back we came up Freedom Road to Bunyard and went over the I-540 Hopper Tunnel. Best done in the winter when you can see the highway. It started off very misty (we got wet), and the slab was slick. Once we got on gravel, all was good. Not much for "vistas" given the fog, but temps were perfect.
Matt sure can ride that big monster.

A few shots are below, but you can check out the slide set (17 photos) HERE

Our good part of our route:

This ledge ran along the road quite a ways. Never noticed it before (probably because of the trees).

Pannell was a little rutted, but the muck had dried out, mostly.

We carefully planned a way down the ledge, keep left, keep left. Matt said "f-it", went down the center like a champ. I whimped and went around.

More ruts.

Hurry up, take my picture...

Lee Creek was way, way down, crossing was not an issue.
