Fun in the snow

Took a ride out towards Darrington on Boxing Day, to see where the snow was, and just generally have a poke around. Took FS17 off Swede Haven and didn't get to far before it was more ice than not.



Then went over to the Saulk River valley, ostensibly to look for a camping spot that I keep missing, but didn't get too far back in there either.



24 looked pretty darn icey, at least down at the bottom, so I went off and found some single track to entertain me.



Beautiful day, and as always, it's good to be riding in the PNW.

Dashing through the snow,

hell yes, hell yes, hell yes
Hey!

Looks like fun, but the DRZ might have been the better choice? ;)
