Well of course. I'll have a look at the steep descent (jeez, even Google shows it's a road) but follow Upper Tunnel gently (?) down if the steep thing looks difficult. After so much garage time, the bike is too pretty to drop yet.

On the other end of your route there is a big zig zag that takes you off of Granite Creek Road.
Ah, didn't notice that. Blame the auto-route. Fixed. If all goes well, I also plan to see if I can drop down to a gorge section of Dry Creek. Saw some impressive pics of that spot.

Thanks for your advice. I'll probably share an invite here for this or the next weekend.

Apparently Trailrider383 has this thing for pics , so I ponied up the big bucks and got a Photobucket account , spent a couple of hours at the computer trying to figure out how to post, only to learn the long and hard way that I had to modify the url code a little to make it show. What a pain in the Ass.

So Ed, here you go, yesterday happened!!

I had originally planned on heading out to JV via the minor two tracks paralleling succor creek, turns out I couldn't get out of bed untill 10 so I had to abbreviate the trip a bit. Anyway, here are a few pics of another beautiful February day.


I saw about four bunches of these wild crap stacking ponies, man do the wild ones pile it high.
They seemed really nervous while I was just watching them, but as soon as I fired the bike back up they were content to just watch me go



Can you count all the deer? I stopped at sixty, thats when they started running. I should have used a panorama shot because this is just the middle of the bunch



I've always liked this view point, accept for the power lines of course





Three fingers


Time to go home, just a few hours and a few miles in the Owyhees




And I think I figured out my fuel mileage problems today also, unless its really only 24 miles from ontario to the Owyhee dam, as my odometer stated, so it looks like the odo is about 35% effed up. Works for me

Anyway, really enjoyed it so far. And always fun to imagine Phil whining.
Yeah, it was a lot of miles for sure. I'll try to get the last day or two up sometime this weekend...

I went out today to study the Wilderness Study Areas.

New helmet, check.





No, actually I just wanted to shred the "Funnest Road Ever" on my 450.
The start of FRE.



I laid down the first tracks of the year!





It was a "all the vents open on the jacket" kind of day. I should have had my mesh jacket on actually, it was warm.









Blue Sky, check.



I had to dab going across a bog.



A couple of modern spheres and an obsidian sphere.






More obsidian.



I found a nice camping spot and swimming hole down there.













I saw more deer than I've ever seen out there. The mild winter was kind to them I guess.





Still a little icy down there.










Another good spot to camp. On the beach no less.

Ah, no tellum ridge on the FRE. Dry creek canyon? And you must have followed my tracks into the lake for the view of "the nipple" across the lake at the dry creek cabins, that was a pretty cool little road-two track-single track.

The weather's supposed to be good next weekend too, so here's what I'm thinkin. I've got a brand new set of custom built racks for the DRZ, a new chain, a 15 degree sleeping bag, a tent with a little dust on it, a brand new un-opened bottle of warmth, a noob buddy with an experienced KLR (Tyson's old one), and the need to build a camp fire.: 1drink
I'll be leaving Nyssa for three forks around 1 on friday for a little overnighter. With my amazing navigation skills I should be able to find a very long and interesting way to Three forks including several dead ends and a little backtracking now and then.

The more the Merrier Beyotches, lets ride

How are you going to have a proper (big) campfire at 3 Forks?

P.S. See you there. I was just thinking yesterday I haven't used my tent since last August.

I thought you might want to head out the day before, drop off a big truck load of firewood, then ride out with us the next day.


Damn, I have some great ideas

You could have picked a little better weekend for camping. Only lower 60's and sunny.

I recognize that! Tyson and I were just down there a few hours ago. I think we also found your odd grow operation above Juntura. I hope we get a prize. Great day to be out.

One picture? You wouldn't be holding out would you?
I'll bet you enjoyed that rocky trail.
