Laugh Slow DS ride to Twin Lakes

Me, myself and KLX are going to ride up to Twin Lakes[up by Mt Baker] saturday. Planing on going by the Hwy 20/9 AMPM at 09:30. It is a little low geared so will be going around 50ish.

Might want to bring the fn Disco Pass.

Had a nice slow ride up to Twin Lakes. Just made it to the top and hit about 4' of snow. Not much room to turn around so I just went into the snow and dug the rear tire down. Took some pics on the way up.





















This is the first [west] of the twins.



It has been a while since I was up there, think the line is about where the road goes.



The other lake is real close on the other side of those trees.



Going to make another run up after the snow is gone. Thats if it don't start snowing again. Lots of people out. Didn't see one critter.

You were on the Adventure SV Suzuki. I kept looking at that low slung oil filter.......
Remember the "gang" of Honda 70's that came riding up?

Here's a little Petersen who visited one day before you, Cap'n.

He doesn't look too happy that it's still snowy, but he has waterproof pants on, so he's good to go. Roped up with his Dad to make sure he doesn't have too much fun, he's not even at the terrible two's yet. This one is Viggo, number seven outta eight grandkids and still counting.
