Looking good so far, keep it coming! I was out there about a week after the fires burnt out. There was a spot on the Whitehorse Ranch road where a few wild horses didn't outrun the fire. I didn't take pictures of it because it was kind of morbid.

I see you got prime real estate at Willow. You must have had the whole place to yourselves. That camp spot is usually the first one taken.

Beautiful photos Wachs!

It seems like someone gets Woxed on just about every one of your adventures... Glad to see Neffr and the bike survived the dusty get off.

Always looking forward to your reports, thanks for taking the time to shoot the photos and share the rides!

Loving the report and photos! The sight of the burnt willows makes my heart ache, though

Looking forward to spending a week in the desert over Thanksgiving

Thx - Probably. Ankle still won't fit in a ski boot correctly plus it's not looking like powder anytime soon.







Last day for Neffr, Professor, Killurtv and myself. We knew it had warmed above camp and dedicated today to the snow - let’s see where it is, how deep, what consistency and if we can put together a lasso of high country.

Nice weather, a little warmer.



Gathering up the crew.




LilPossum no problem!



This will all grow back.









It’s tuesday and I have one phone thing to do for about 20 minutes. We’re at the Y junction of a road I’ve never been up, it’s totally burned up but leads into a deep canyon for an out-and-back explore.








Those guys all roll ahead.







Wow - it was hot down in here



Watch what happens though!



Let’s keep lookin’ around - back out of the canyon







Up near the top, the snow is soft and foamy. Nothing is frozen and traction is actually good for the thumpers - sure glad I wasn’t on that 990











Then it became a bit deeper, colder.







We could see that we’d be riding in solid snow for the next few miles and probably beyond. It could end up in a ________ if we continued north.

Why not explore this little plateau spur? It’ll probably dead end but we’re here, let’s go check it out.



We’re not very far up but it’s on a really cool prow.



My 525 is an awesome machine - so glad to be back on the bike. (And that I put the forks back from the 10mm lowering for the Gifford - the thing turns way better again!)



The next snow will freeze up all this burnt chocolate.



We thought there might be a fire break gouged down but cliff bands made that unlikely once we got a good look.




Let’s go visit an old homestead and see if the place survived the fire.




WOW! It’s gone. There were 2 houses in this little scene, the root cellar to one can be seen over on the right at the base of the hill.




The barn is also completely gone. It was in the center of this scene surrounded by aspen and tall willow trees, you could barely see it amongst the foliage.








We’d better start back as we have a 5 hour truck to home.













Dusty burnt chocolate with no frosting.






The setting sun through the clouds was spectacular.




Thanks for inviting us to your birthday party MrDualsport and LittlePossum! I forgot to mention the cake and festivities last night but Professor has a bunch of shots to share.



The fire jumped all kinds of willow stand and mahogany. Even though it was a nasty blaze, it won’t take long for this to come back.



That’s about all I have. Thanks again for the invite, it was a great moto trip with a great group of friends!















ps. Not as healed as I thought. Rode with a bunch of single track maniacs yesterday and had to abandon the group at about 45 miles, totally fatigued - bonked.

An hour later one guy crashed and broke his collar bone dang it.

Gotta take it easy to keep it going for now.

Then there was 2

LittlePosum and I got one more day of riding in after everyone left.


Some more great views, they're not hard to find







Found another cool canyon








And another water crossing

Looks a little deep...



Not too bad! Hit it Posum!



Back at camp



Spent one more night in camp and headed home the next morning.

I think this was the only flat of the trip!


Even the dogs are toast!


Great rides all! I had an awesome time!

I'm gonna back up a bit.

Here's a few more of the Neffr Poof Getoff:


Killurtv is moving in to use his EMT training


"Can you tell me what day it is?"


"Holy Crap, lets head back to the hot springs. I need to get some of this poof dust out of my nose, eyes, mouth, ears and ass"
You got to respect the Poof! It will bite you big time.

Back at camp:

The Chocolate Tunnel - a miracle of engineering!

More to come
