Have a good ride, that road was my second favorite road I've found this year,
first being the West-East route from Madras through Ashwood to Twickenham.

AJ: I took a little ride out of Madras today on your "favorite road". I know it's not "Around the Hood" exactly, but thought I'd post a couple pics (sorry I forgot the camera so had to use my android phone):

The Route:




Fall colors along Trout Creek:



View from the Ochoco's ( See it's not all red cinder gravel, ice and guardrails)



John Day River:





Cherry Creek Ranch Area





Old barn on Cherry Creek Ranch. I was told by an old guy that used to run sheep on the ranch that until the metal roof was put on, there were no metal fastenings of any type on the barn.





Pushed it a little too late as there were deer starting to show up everywhere, but caught a nice sunset:






Today's Stats:




The weather was perfect and the roads are in awesome condition.
