    And it looks like it will be the last time to ride in the dry for awhile.

    Went for a ride to the top of Steptoe Butte today for the first time. Was a beautiful view, but pretty hazy. I will have to return again to see it on a clear day. Perfect riding temperature today though!

    Did this guy make it to Ellensburg yet? My brother is driving over there tomorrow, and has a pickup. I can ask him if he would be willing to give him a lift.

    The cabin is a first come first served... The guys knocked but nobody was there but a dog... A few minutes passed and the inhabitants showed up on 4 wheelers/SxS. They were out bow hunting but came home back empty handed. Asked them about the cedar grove we decided to visit and pointed us in the right direction...

    Wow! It looks like you had an awesome ride and covered a lot of ground. How many days did you take do it?

    Blue Haven and the cedars was about a 7hr ride and we only covered 75 +/- miles. Stopped for a little shooting practice included.

    Sunday we just explored.

    I've been sick for about three weeks now. For a while I was too plugged up to ride, couldn't hear and was just weak. Still sick, getting better, but the last days of warm weather went by me while I was producing lung butter.
    Next ride will involve liners, heavy gloves, heated grips and seat.
