Oh well ... pics don't do it justice ... it's a three mile road off 108 ... long, steep, rocky and loose ... Bulls were dogged, handlebars touched the ground ... lots of fun ...

We did get to explore the very beginning of Hell's Half-Acre Road ... really pretty ... will be heading back up there to try to make my way from 108 to 4 ... Beginning to see why this was Ben Java's favorite ... super easy (quick) from the Bay Area ...

Lake Leavitt is in a "Wilderness Study Zone" ... ride it while you can, I guess ...

see you around the campfire,

hey john and cary. great job getting out, up and away; very cool pics (and literally cool)....
