Strolling Amok

Pops goes on tour.

Biking FR9711D

At sunset, the sun came out and, WOW! Beautious.

A couple of days ago, it was overcast with sporadic rain predicted in the afternoon, so I briefly stopped by the VanDweller’s camp to give them a hard time, and then biked what I thought might be the loop approved for motor vehicle travel and camping, FR 9711D. Well, I was both right and wrong. I turned off FR573 too early, and caught an unapproved shortcut, FR9711C. Wow, it was rough going! It finally intersected FR9711D and I continued on around what was left of the loop.

FR9711C had a few sections that I decided to walk, since rocks and ruts can make the going tricky. Could have biked it, but why?

Interesting that 9711D is approved, because there’s no way the Enterprise would make it down that trail! Then again, forest roads listed for camping and vehicle access don’t imply that anything but a 4×4 pop-up truck camper can make it in. You’re free to camp – if you can make it in.

This is an axle-dragger for sure, and guaranteed to toss contents around.

Some parts of 9711D were great!

Very pretty.

FR9711D is kind of a loop that mostly runs parallel to FR573. This is the East entrance, as seen from 9711D itself. 573 is way back there.

The hill hidden in the previous shot. I'm not so sure the Enterprise could make this at all, even with the Furd in 4WD-Low. It's steep, rough, and has plenty of loose rocks. i had to go real slow on the bike to get down it.
