Look what I found!

Here's a pic of the slide that stopped us on the 2502rd.

From here we backtracked to the 020 spur, a promising looking road that heads up high, and came upon this:

Lacking a powered saw we retreated back to the Hamma Hamma and went for a look at the 2401rd near Jefferson Lakes. Here's a look toward Washington Pass, over the top of Elk Lake, from the end of 2401.


The group rode up to the end of the 112rd, off of 2401, for another look toward Washington Pass before it rained. Here's Steven and Olyrider discussing the finer points of GS's while their trusty small bikes listen jealously.


Washinton Pass just before the serious rainstorm hit.


After riding down the hill, the group headed over the pass to a certain soaking and I slabbed it back to Quilcene for a late lunch then home to see if the dog would let me through the gate. Great ride with a capital bunch of fellows. Dave

Parting shot:

You guys have been hitting all of my favorite spots lately... One of these times I will have to come along. Pakled let me know about the ride but I was busy breaking in my new backpacking boots this weekend. Here's a picture of my foot for everyone who may be eating dinner:

Here are my pics guys thanks for a great ride, can't wait to do it again.


this is that big slide




Dan




hiking past the slide




man did you get those at payless?




Bear poop?




I love rain




One of the views I managed to stop for




foiled again




a well shaped adventure rider (guns=freedom)




the man himself DD




Steven & Paul




the whole day we were in and out of clouds and it was spectacular




It's hard to capture the beauty of this spot especially without a wide angle lens but if you followed this valley up it came to some really rugged snow spotted mountain peaks and made for a spectacular view




Dan & DD checking out the view, i'm told that is mount washington to the right




Our plans were to go over mount washington but this construction project changed that




re-routing




steven




this washout was impressive




I think atomicfuze can jump it




red is good




sharing a little power & air with my KLR brother




this was a friendly little place




i think that's Poulsbo at the end of the rainbow




nope it's a KLR







I had a great time guys let's go again soon.
-Brian

Cascade Ride 8/23

Anyone up for a ride in the Cascades on Saturday 8/23?

I'm thinking having breakfast a Charlie's in Enumclaw then heading out for a full day of riding in the Cascades.

Proposed Route:
Enumclaw - Hwy 410 to FS 70
FS 70 to 7030 - 7036 - 7038 - 1913 - 19.
FS 19 to a run up to Raven's Roost.
FS 19 and 410 to Cliffdell for lunch at Whistln' Jacks.
Then back up 410 to FS 19 to 1914 - FS 70.

Dang Steven, That sounds like a good ride, plus I could ride east instead of west for a change. Alas, I am unavailable to ride this weekend. Have fun.

Yeah I might be up for that. I was up there Sunday doing a little recon looking for the most technical route that would be fun & doable for big bikes. I got kind of a wierd vibe all of a sudden like I didn't want to be up there alone on a late sunday afternoon in wackey weather and returned without a complete route. What do you think about some back ways including some of the less gnarly parts of the Naches to get to 19 then a more lesurely ride back over 7030? I was planning on going back up this weekend to scout a complete route.

That sounds like a good plan to me. How about meeting at Charlies at 9am?

Olympic Peninsula ride Saturday August 23rd w/ optional camping

2track and myself are planning on an Olympic Peninsula ride Saturday August 23rd and optional camping Saturday night around Neah Bay.

We are going to ride the area between the Soleduck & Hoh River area just West of Lake Crescent and then camp overnight in the Neah Bay area somewhere.

If someone knows a good place to camp in the Neah Bay area I would be open to suggestions.

Edit: Hobuck campground sounds promising, they have a big open field $15 a tent.

Edit: Forest services roads so Knobbies are recommended.

cheers,
-Brian

What time and where, Brian? I'm going to ride Saturday and was looking at the North Slope but it would be cool to ride some new ground.

I PM'd mike to see what ferry he will take and then I can figure out a time to meet up.

We could meet at the 20 & 101 junction???

Also do you know of a good place to have some breakfast between the 20 and Port Angeles on the 101?

Mike will be on the 8:40 ferry so we could meet you at the 20/101 junction at around 9:45?

Any other takers?
