Farewell Fall Ride

Cool mist already lay deep in the valleys in the morning, but one last sunny weekend would surely bring some dry-ish ground to ride on. With the Middlefork Snoqualmie almost closed for the year, it had to be there.

Dirt roads quickly lead up into the valley, into sunshine. Sweat dripping, running down everywhere. Don’t stop or it will get cold!

Rest and eat at the end of the road – the sun warming and drying my back. And drying the trail where the rays can reach.

Leaves hide roots and rock, but the big front tire bravely goes where it is commanded to.

Every imaginable contrast is created by Sun and Shadow, steam rising off the moses up into the blue sky, far above.

A shower has been set up for the weary traveler; lukewarm – not bad at all!

Down past Goldmyer hot springs, the big tree-bridge over the Burntboot creek has been taken out by another tree – marking the beginning of a soon-to-be forgotten middle-section of this trail?
