Thanks guys!


I'm still not ready for the big technological jump up to a GPS but I am one step closer now with this awesome marine compass!!



Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows!

Just went out and took the long way to lunch today....nothing special.

















Neat little RR cut.

















Need to try and remember this old bridge for a future tag-o-rama.

It's a popular swimming hole....when it's a bit warmer.


















Try and imagine what it might look like in July.










..a closer look at the signage...

Either way you take to get to Burnt Mill will take you down a windy single lane ribbon of pavement lined with trailers.


















There's some lonely ribbons of single lane dirt nearby too.

















This shack had been too overgrown to get near with a camera until the power company cleared the brush alongside the road where it sits.

After lunch I did a little maint. on the old DR650 and changed the oil in the Toyota pickup. It's now loaded in the back but I have yet to make a set plan for tomorrow.

Nice.

I like the sign in the campground/swimming hole spot: "buy your beer here".

Glad I made it out for a ride, what a great day!

Signage at Horse Pastures shows expanded dates...used to close on the 1st, now open until the 15th.















I went in the entrance at Rocky Bottom.















They're filling in all that RR gravel with some finer aggregates. Glad to be on the thumper.

There's a number of these scenic overlooks along the 'North' road.















Jumping Off Rock is the most popular.
