    But I cross over through the state park to the southern side side.

    Mud isn't bad at all. Piney Mountain facing west. The gate is open on the east side of PineGrove Furnace Road, but I'll leave the hunters in peace.

    I head down the mountain to the Elkhorn Inn in Bendersville for a burger and coffee, but it's closed. I settle for Mexican sausage and scrambled eggs at Tania's Mexican restaurant out on PA34.

    Chores require my return to civilization. But it was a nice little escape. I'll cut over to Whiskey Springs Road towards Boiling Springs on that gravel road. Can't recall the name.

    I pulled the RV out to soon this year. This is prime time to tour Michaux on my Husky. But I needed to get some warranty work done on the RV so its done. There is always next year. See you guys and girls around Fishing Season.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, I'll give Tania's a 3. It isn't easy to find really good Mexican food in Pennsylvania.

    The Elkhorn Inn in "downtown" Bendersville is a cool place to stop for a bite when riding in the northern end of Michaux.

    At Pine Grove Furnace, take Pine Grove Furnace Road from the ironmaster's mansion, pass the campground, cross Piney Mountain Ridge Road and Coon Road and continue to the dead-end at Bendersville-Wenksville Road where you take a left. Ride a couple miles into town. Food is basic home-cooking but varied. The interior will surprise you; the original structure is an old log building and the chinked walls are exposed inside.

    Be aware that it is closed from 11AM-5PM on Saturdays. I should have photographed the hours that were on the door.

    There is also an historical marker on the sidewalk out front. Here is a link for an historical photo and the history.

    No need to wait until Spring. The riding is just fine in Michaux right now.

    I must admit, the snow was deeper than I expected and the tire tracks were a touch icy. Made for an interesting ride. I did manage to keep the rubber side down at all times.

    Have a Happy New Year and see you in Michaux soon.

    Nice looking pix!

    I'm curious where you're mounting your rubbers if you want that side "up at all times" :evil

    If I was going to do this on a regular basis I would stud the tires. There was a definite lose of traction on a few occasions. :eek1

    How about Saturday in Michaux and Sunday in Northern VA?! There's a neat little creek crossing in Philomont on VA Rt. 734 (Jeb Stuart Rd.) that would be worth checking out.:lol3

    I know Marshall well, my dads paternal great, great grandparents left west Philly (Germantown) in the 1790's and settled in southeastern Bedford Co., PA, many of the other family members headed south to Loudoun and Fauquier Co's., in northern VA. If I decide to head down that way on Sunday, I'll be on the wee!
