    Last Sunday with @bmwivan - fantastic day for February!!!

    rumor is, Hurricane Creek is getting locked gates soon.... and since I put myself out of commission for almost 3 moth riding it last September, I figured it's time for a last hurrah

    Gates are already in - original access is "tank trapped"

    the top section was slimy... oops :lol3 (only oops for the day)

    rutted

    one of the many rutted out sections thanks to influx of jeeps over the last few years

    the mud pit further down

    [​IMG]

    not to self: don't get stuck in the rut. :bluduh

    [​IMG]

    Yes, I cheated - I used Ivan's talent (and weight) to get my bike up :hide. Should have ridden up the shoulder on the right like last time instead of following

    I assume it was the last time we were able to ride it, I can't say I blame the FS for shutting it down.
    Since the jeeps discovered that route it took a beating, way more than we ever did on the bikes.

    And apparently this one is there for at least a month...

    And something different the next day: played hooky from work to take advantage of the "heat-wave" with @BUGSMAK

    Well, that sucks, about Hurricane Creek. It would be ok if they just kept jeeps out.

    that would be
    I doubt it - license plate is gone and it has bald tires. It's either dumped and/or someone stole it.
