FS67 still snowed in

Went back to FS67 last Saturday. Made it to Nason Ridge Trail from Hwy 2 this time. The road has definitely had some drainage issues.

The first time that I saw the KTM 1190 ADV I noticed how closely it resembled a V-Strom. I thought it was strange as everyone always commented on how "ugly" the gen 1 V-Stroms are.

FS67 at Hwy 2 has snow

I was just up on FS67 at Hwy 2. There is hard pack snow almost immediately after leaving Hwy 2. I don't think that the snow goes far down the road. I was in a 2wd pickup and didn't risk getting...
