Upon reaching the highest point of the BRP many of them were topping off with oil and water.

Saturday was forecast to be rainy but we awoke to warm and dry, albeit overcast. Arriving at the base of the Cherohala Skyway.....it looked like it might be a different story up there....


















It was.















We rode up until it began to rain and turned around....but it continued to rain until we stopped and put on rain gear.

So....back to the gap we went.















It wasn't quite as lonely on Saturday morning.



















...just on opportunity to make new friends.

They didn't care to continue on the rough part of 711 as the new pavement still only goes 1/2 way....but I did.













































Made it back to civilization just as the bottom dropped out!
