If this is way north and WAY HIGH, I think I've been there before.





...but I don't remember how I got there.

Anyway, is this the location?

I'd rather someone else get the tag, I just want to ride there.

That is the place. Notice the shape of the poplar tree in the first shot is the same.

Damn, that IS a good tag. Plenty of good riding around there too. Sadly, I cannot get it as I am off to Floriduh tomorrow to party with the Fleas. Y'all have a good one!

This tag is less than 10 miles from my house by road.

Ah, now I remember. I had a big loop planned in that area, but ended up running into some gates along my route and never made it all of the way up there....but I know how to get there now.

Probably should give AzB and Jman955i the warning not to bring the Wing or the Harley...

There are 2 closed gates within 50' of each other that stop you from making a loop. The FS likes all the roads around here to be dead ends.

Sorry, even with knobbies it probably won't work, but it would be an ADVenture.

Thanks for the warning. But I could kinda tell by the pictures that the road would be rough. Now I could hook the trailer up behind the wing and tow my XR up there and then go get it on the XR

If it is where I think it is, I'm not sure I'll want to tackle it even on the Vstrom, Which would rule out getting it tomorrow..

The KLR does need some exercise though. Hmm..

Hi DirtDabber! Great tag with a beautiful view. Regardless of who gets this tag, I want to check the area out. Looks like some good riding! SR

Great tag and clever clues. Not knowing the area, it took me awhile on Google Earth to find it. Turns out I was really near it two weeks ago on my first ride in NGA. Beautiful country! Looking forward to getting back when it's a little warmer.
