Wink Sierra National Forest Report

Ok, you all know how this works. Post pics and Ride reports here!
Weather and other info like upcoming rides are welcome too.

theGrinch and myself are in Oakhurst this weekend for the Stewards Of The Sierra dual sport ride. This is their 4th Annual fundraiser/ ride, day one was great, we rode the trails around Mariposa, today we are heading up to the high country to see the views from the top of Shuteye Peak. (8000'+)
SOTSNF does a great job keeping the trails open here.

Dzrtracin is the winner of the photo contest for November in the Sierra National Forest Report! Nice shot Shawn! Post up you best for December, only new pics taken in the SNF will be considered...no file photos.

Yeah? Well...so? I could have one here, too, if I wanted.
It would be from last year, though

Great riding, good food, tons of swag from the sponsers, all for a great cause, keeping our trails open!

Stewards of the Sierra...

Yeah, I was there too.

Rode from home in Walnut Crick, took the long way. Almost up to Crow Peak on 5S25 when I came across this deadfall.



I didn't have the skill or leg length to get up over that by myself with my fully laden WRR, so back-tracked to Roundtree
Road where I connected with Highway 49.

On the way home I meandered up past Nelder Grove where I happened to run into wrk2surf/Mike when my path intersected
6S07. Hiya, Mike! He passed me somewhere along here...



About a half-hour later as I was plonking up Summit Road I saw a bear, medium sized, black tinged with gray, as it booked
from left to right in front of me, down the left upslope-across the road-down the right downslope, in about 1.2 seconds.

No photo...



I'd heard some jeepers had encountered that deadfall Saturday afternoon and had "taken care of it" so I decided to head
home that way just to see. Sure enough it was obliterated.

RR July 13-14th 2013 SOTSNF dual sport ride

Peter theGrinch met me at my shop in Visalia Friday afternoon, we loaded up the bikes onto the trailer and headed north to Oakhurst. The plan was to stay at Mike's house.(wrk2surf) Thanks Mike for the hospitalty.

wrk2surf's moto shop, a nice place to hang out and work on the bikes.

Max the lazy dog, cooling off on the wet grass, it was HOT!

Day one we rode up to Pilot Peak lookout on the Mariposa side.N

great views from there

The USFS fire guys were there filling up the water tank for the lookout.

the mighty 450 EXC on it's test run.It started out the day with only 1123 miles in 8 years! It is a 2006 model that I just plated last week.

We had all three flavors of KTM RFS bikes, 450/525/540.

Triangle Market lunch stop on day one, I had the Salmon burger, Mmmmmm.

that is all for day one

Day two,theGrinch and wrk2surf near Nelders Grove on the Sugerpine trail

a stop on the way to Star Lake

The ridge above Star Lake, Mike and Peter discussing the knarly rocky hillclimb we just made.





Star Lake and the Merced river canyon

Notice the rock on the left, it looks like a dog's head



the Yosmite high country

theGrinch realized, I'm not in Cleveland anymore.





fixin a flat

theGrinch crashed on this knarly rocky section going up to Shuteye

Mike just blew on by....showering theGrinch with rocks.Braaaaaappp!

a few more pics soon.....

You know why? Because Cleveland does suck!

A couple of those pics are taken from the mountain that looks down in my Uncles ranch just off Jerseydale and Triangle roads. I know that area, it's really nice.
