Nice and relaxed after the hot tub.

We started on the dirt today and had amazing roads. Everything from 2 lane to gravel to water crossings to Route 33 with it fast banked turns.




This is where we started.










On the forest service road in George Washington Forest it looks like a fire went through there maybe last year.




We are not in New England anymore.







The KLR doods







After a short paved connection we were back to the forest.







Then out of the woods to find food. We stopped at the Lost River Grill. Great food and service. It was Mother's Day the place was almost full. Nothing else around for miles.

Then we rode in a valley by Lost River West Virginia.











Back in to the woods and we started to climb up to 3000 feet and the temperature dropped to about 48 degrees.










We came down off the mountain and came to a water crossing. It didn't seem that big but it had slippery uneven rocks so we helped each other through. We thought we were all set then 100 yards the stream hooked around and we had to cross it again.




It was getting late and we decided to head to Harrisonburg VA. We took route 33 up and over the mountain. That was a blast to ride.




Keith took lots of video and will post them in a while.

More tomorrow.
