Pics from Sunday

It was dusty but such a hoot





Mat seemed to be enjoying himself







Can you say dusty, this was just a little way into the ride.



Susi wasn't showing her dusty face



I have no idea why this sign is here



Break time



No reason to fix this when you can just close the road



I took the long way home

There are a couple of things that I dont want to list here that will give it away immediately as well.

Thanks

Oh no, that sucks Chris! I'll keep my eyes out in the greater Seattle/Tacoma area for you... I had a vehicle stolen from me in the past (my trusty bike-hauling pickup), and understand how big a hit it can be...

He got it back! But he didn't get the kid that was riding it!

The Terrible Traverse on Bennett Pass Rd seems to be a favorite picture spot.
Hot,......??
Cooler at that elevation than it was working down near HR...

Bennett Pass

the drop off on Bennett Pass scares me when the road is dry. Check out this idiot driving Bennett Pass in snow.

If the link doesn't work, go on youtube and watch: Snow wheeling Bennett Pass 11-6-09

Graig,

Got your PM, figured I would reply here in case others are curious.

If you are talking about riding 4613 from 4614 to 4610 (click here for map) I have not been North of the river this year. So unless you know something I don't, I would think it's passable.

No guarantees but I might be able to head up there and check over the weekend if the wife does not have other plans.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Jon...

Maybe a little but we were surprised how hot it was even up there!
