    Cool pics. That looks like quite a nice route through there. I've heard alot about Harrison FSR, but have never been on it.

    What a great ride! Kudos to MANXMAN and dr650bc for all their efforts in pulling this off. The routes were fantastic, the group of riders and inmates that made the ride contributed to a fantastic time!

    Here's a few of the shots that I took.

    I recently picked up a Panasonic DMC-ZS3. It's a nice small camera that takes very decent photos...

    That is the Princeton side of the tunnel just after the mill. It is right in town, there is a bridge right after it. This tunnel goes under the main highway.

    That camera does take some really nice shots Larry. Thanks for posting all those shots. One can never have too many to remember an awesome weekend. :clap

    I picked up a Panasonic FX-8 a couple of years back and have been super happy with it as well. I must be a good salesman or something because my parents and my wifes parents and some co-works also picked up the Lumix series.

    Yep, I like the Panasonic. Easy to use, and has the Leica lens.

    Here's a few more of Day 2, at the end of Anderson Lake near Seton Portage...
