JS,

Looking forward to riding again. I may continue on after the planned ride, adding the other two gaps, so my uphill rate of roll will be a bit slower than last time.

I have a few e-mail addresses from the initial planning post; I'll drop them a reminder this afternoon.

Talk to you soon,
Mike
your uphill rate, LOLJS Haiku Shop

your uphill rate vs. mine last time allowed you plenty of time to ride to the top, back down, take pics, and ride back up, all while i'm toiling away in my 30/32.

:)

see you vogel SP @ 9:40 am friday. i'm guessing there's a main visitor's center somewhere centrally located within the park?

i'm going to re-post this and a link to this & the orig thread daily between now & thursday.

The road drops down a small hill, into a right-hand bend. Follow the main road, passing a few cabins, a lake on the left, and the road opens up in a parking lot, (quarter mile?). There is a small visitor center on the opposite side of the parking lot. Restrooms are to the left of the visitor center.

I'll be in a red Nissan pickup, under a shade tree if there is one.
