hmmm... I've been meaning to get over to the Westside... maybe I just haul over next spring!

Sounds like a blast!

and the hunt for 2805 continued....

Still looking for that damn road! Took a little ride west first.... Beautify fall colors...





and interesting perspective.... doG I love deserted country roads!~




My quest took me back to Deer Lake....

and this did look promising... until I hit the gate.





Turned around and started looking for offshoots to the road.... lookee what I found...


A rough little logging road up the hill.


I've been watching too much Trials Competition I actually considered giving this a try......


Likely would have given I had another body with me... maybe next time.

I really, really want to get up there! May have to do it horseback.



What goes up must come down... I didn't consider it a complete DEAD END, just another day... Kept looking for more offshoots and found this interesting trail.

Usually the ruts would have scared me off, but I think I'm over that now...



but alas.... a DEAD END....I didn't even consider crawling up that little path... it looked like it ended on a Kelly Hump at the top...


what goes up must come down...

..and it was an interesting trip down... I about dumped the bike four times just trying to get started... "Oh NO you don't Buttercup" "Dammit!" and a few other choice words best not repeated... idiot... park sideways on a hill... bleep bleep

The trip down kinda looked like this..... really blurry....


Stopped for a Carmel Mocha blend at a cute little coffee stand in D.L.


Cute: I wanna go to camp Run-A-Muk!!

and a few shots on the way home.....










I just love the vibrant colors of fall.... I also like it green, but there's just something about fall... maybe the fact that it's cooler and you can appreciate that -- with Winter on the way, kind of like the last Hurrah!

Observing Trials Competition tomorrow...

Buttercup: You are getting brave going out on those roads by yourself. I'd love to go with you just to see you ride up that logging road.

I'm putting every tip every rider has given me to improve my skills.... I thank you all for those little snippets of insight into riding bikes.... !!

Next year at Hell's Canyon -- I hope that you will see I have used these gems to improve my riding skills... Getting a little braver and more confident each ride....

uh, no.... they have MANY MANY years of experience over me...

... and I still have this really, really strong preservation instinct... so far, it's kept me out of trouble.

Heck! I'm just shooting to get good enough that the Intermediates don't get such a long rest waiting for me... that way I can rest too!!!
