All burnt up in SE Oregon

I'd been trying to do a 3-4 day ride in SE Oregon or NW California after finishing up my house rebuild in August & September and couldn't make anything happen. I finally committed to Nov 3-6 regardless of whether anyone else could make it. It was a solo trip.

I trailered the XR over to Bend from Corvallis Saturday morning and was going to stage from Bend, but part way there I decided to head on down to Christmas Valley (closer to Silver Lake really) and stage from my wife's uncle's little slice of heaven

BIke all gassed up, I rode over to the the turnoff to the Black Hills Botanical area directly south of Christmas Valley to start the ride, cutting over to Fandango

I decided to see how the Shinko 700 rear tire I'd bought for a NW California (mostly) road tour would work out over 800 miles of SE Oregon

Turning toward Fandango

Fandango down in the valley

I took the easy route, here's some vid. I finally got my Contour Roam helmet cam set up properly and this trip was its first successful outing
