Some pic's of the Mt. Rainer ride

Howdy All,

Us folks who live up here in the "Great North Wet", are doing everything we can to take advantage of the unusual weather we are having. The "Sun" is shineing, it's not "raining", the moss is drying up, the slugs are in hiding. I for one am concerned that the webs between my toes will fall off it they aren't waterlogged soon:eek:

Here are some photes of our Sunday ride.









Hope you enjoy the photos, it was a great ride, "Marc", you missed a good time.

Just because it's a zoo out there doesn't mean you have to view it from a cage!

Don't be an impulse buyer... afterall you have time..

I know, I know. However, I headed east on 2, south on 203, then out on some forest roads from North Bend (even got the bike dirty again...however, that's been "taken care of") - I was afraid of getting stuck in traffic and had enough of that to last an entire month on Saturday. Anyways, it was good to meet your riding friends and hope the tire patch held.

You know, there are a lot of "unexplored" fire roads and forest trails out your way. Might need to get out there before too long. You game?

Fires, pollution or just morning fog burning off?

The above photos are proof of global warming, not a cloud in the sky in Washington?!? Can't be true.

Cob, for a computer illiterate person you have a good handle on Photoshop techniques:):
Howdy Eric,

I know absolutly nothing about retouching photos, so what is in the pictures is as close to real as my camera ( set on idiot mode because I don't know what all them fancy buttons are for ) is capable of taking. The pictures with the haze were taken at lower elevation on the east end of a heavily wooded valley, it is possiable that the moisture in the air was still burning off of the trees deep in the valley.

As to "global warming" see you in "Jo Mamma" if you want to go there:):

Howdy Marc,

Anytime you have the time, lets get together and do some xsplorin Maybe we can talk Chopperman into coming along.

I am interested in riding where you have been going also, lets play an ADVrider form the old kids game "Doctor", you show me your trails, I'll show you mine.
