Rained/misted solid all the way to Elkton. Since it wasn't the best of days I didn't try to hard to stick to my plan and missed Devil's Graveyard on the way out. A mediocre lunch at Arlene's let my soaked feet warm up just a touch as I did some online checking of past and future travels(still hate my mapping situation). It was dry for about 5 miles out of Elkton and when I tried going north on Indian Cr and Jack Cr I found gates and the rain resumed. Back via Hardscrabble and Upper Smith to Loraine had me paying more attention since when the pace picked up so did the congestion, as there were several vehicle and people popping up out in the boonies.

The first 3 weeks of owning the DR has me at 1060 miles on it. 190 more today, and with the rides after work I should have maybe 1500 on it before the first month is up. Problem is decisions on where to ride are harder to come by. When the snowpac lifts it'll open up a bunch more possibilities.
So, tomorrow I'm headed back to the Alsea area to check out the north side of Grass Mtn again. It looked like a less traveled area and could show more 4footed critters that I like. Any one want to tag along let me know.

I'll post some from today's journey when I get home. 8450 miles on the odo, up from 7000 miles when I got it. Saw 4 deer and a chipmunk today, what he's doing out this time of year is weird.

Looks like Saturday's ride will be from Ochoco Summit to Little Willow reservoir, back to the summit via a loop on NF2705 and Little McKay Rd.

How far did you get up Mill Creek Rd before hitting snow?
Did you make it to the Wilderness?

I made it just past the campground two years inna row

Sorry I forgot to resize before I crashed.
Put about 135 miles on. Went up 33 from Ochoco Res, wound around and through some bits of snow here and there up to about 5" deep, ended up back on 27. Up that and since I got a late start I didn't get out to Little Willow Creek Res, ended up on 2720 looking out off a point when I figured I better start back. My map showed the road I was on as a spur road, Google Maps now shows it as on through. There was lots of fresh elk sign there though!
There was one spot south of there, idk the road, where I hit more snow, the last was an uphill patch that went around the corner and out of sight so I turned around.
Man it was good to get back in that area!! Birds singing, sunny and hot enough I really needed to take some layers off, gorgeous scenery, plenty of deer(at least 20), elk sign, chipmunk, sage rats, great stuff.

After heading back to Pville I went to the Pville Res, think I've only been there 2 times before, and never to the campground at the end. Kinda disappointing it's such a dead end road situation.

When I pulled in to the BLM station where I parked and guy followed me in a we talked for a good long time. Come to find out he's a fellow ARV'r and lives on the east end of PVille. Dirtsoup is his name here. we talked about rides in the area and past rides to remember. Great guy, hope we get to share a trail sometime Steve.
