Cool2 Mini-Giant Loop 09, the Alvord Beckons

Well, it's near Father's day and it's time to head to the Oregon desert again. Originally I was planning on heading out with Wachs and crew but new job requirements and potential for wifelessness upon my return changed the plan a little. Enter Leisureclub, KMA and StroupDog. An alternate plan was hatched and it begins tonight. Stay tuned FF'ers.

Greg (Leisureclug) and I left Bend 6am; we railed it to Green Mountain Lookout via CH and 23 and met Jim (KMA) and Brad (Baconsammich) who camped Wed night.


We chatted a bit while they packed them railed it on into CV for gas and Hostess Cupcakes and buiscuits and gravy.




On into Fandango...





Greg fixing his front pinch flat, Brad coming back to see what was the holdup........

So, 4 days of roaming around the Alvord desert of southcentraleastern Oregon. Rough plans around a counter-clockwise loop starting and finishing in Bend. Wednesday night KMA and I camp at Green Mtn, just north of Christmas Valley. Rather chilly night, but not bad...



Leisure and Stroup show up at right around 8am and we're off, quick fuel stop in Christmas Valley and we're headed towards Plush and eventually Fields or somewhere close.



395 to Hogback Rd.



Hart Mtn. Store in Plush



Hart Mtn. road



Dry Lake



Lots of this out there this go-around...

Greg is a sit-down rider and he does just fine. I can't keep up with him through the roughest stuff. Let me guess, Greg was the one who routed you guys down "KMA Road" right? Greg likes finding the rockiest "roads" to ride.

Keep 'er comin' boys!
