Started early this morning from exit 38 in a light rain hoping for the mid-morning break when I got to the viewpoints. It didn't clear up too much at all so without the views to enjoy, I started cutting more trees out of the way. There are a few pudd...

Nice to get out and ride a little. Conditions are good. The road to Freund is posted at 25mph. My friends that live there routinely see us mountain bikers blowing by their house going waaay over that. So does the sheriff's deputy that lives there....

Went back to Chelan to see some new sights. I have done the climb up the North side several times and needed some new scenery. I have never been to the town of Chelan Falls so my plan today was to circumnavigate the Butte starting at the Chelan Reach...

Some patches of snow up top on Raging Ridge, and several wet mud holes as well. Overall flowing well. Don't repeat my mistake and underestimate this route. I was wiped after No Service, and Return Policy was brutal. Extended climbs, not for the faint...

Went early starting at exit 38 and down the Iron Horse to Olallie and then climbed as high as I could until snow stopped me. There is still a need for the bigger saws at 2600' and beyond. There are a lot of trees down and some eroded hills higher tha...

Had an early morning at the Downhill and Boa. I parked outside the ski area and was told to ride counterclockwise around the base area fencing while they are contouring the ski hill base. The new uphill was in excellent shape as was the lower half of...

After seeing the snowline at Olallie was 2600' I figure I could try to take the gravel bike over Barlow Pass on the Mountain Loop Highway. I parked at the Deer Creek gate and began the 7-8 mile ride to Barlow Pass. The snow line on the Mountain Loop...

Another way to do a long gravel loop in the snoqualmie forest (see https://www.gaiagps.com/public/3q5LI0TqU9Sraz2KS17GAqEo). Large part is similar to the one Tom Vale posted recently (thank you Tom Vale for inspiration) but it starts in Carnation and...

There is 6" of snow left at the top of Pathfinder, 2400'. The lower half of the mountain is clear of snow. Last week's snow put a vivid white glow on all the high peaks.
