    We were just going to do Lynx Lake Rd. in Willow, AK. However, the state has it gated off about a mile or so in. :cry

    Lynx Lake Rd., Willow. This shot was taken looking back from the gate. We were only able to go in maybe a mile or so.

    After we couldn't go any further down Lynx Lake Rd., off to Hatcher Pass we went. There are all kinds of great mining roads to ride up there but, ya gotta pay attention.

    Stopped in the parking lot for repairs. I tweaked my left mirror, broke the left hand guard and bent the rear brake pedal on some rocks when I went in the ditch on "some mining road."

    Archangel Road looks pretty good! I haven't been back there in over twenty years and never on a moto. Need to change that very soon. Did you do the loop all the way towards Talkeetna?

    Regarding the Lynx Lake road: I have been back there many times. Try it in the rain! :rofl It is private property after the gate, and you are not missing much. We have had too many vandals and people with sticky fingers :D

    See you on the road!
