Nice pics, I used to ride Salmond Falls, Hwy 49 and 193 all the time when I lived up there during my college years. Some fantastic roads, I remember the logging trucks on 193 near the chilly bar (was that what it was called) near the river where nerve racking.

If I ever get a chance to ride up there again I'll PM ya.

Looks like a good time. I usually ride up there but ive been busy.
Last time, the first time, I went up Mosquito ridge, I had to turn around because of snow.
Seriously though, my friends are totally jealous when Im hangin out that night and tell them that I just rode up the hills for the fun of it.

So I take one little ride through your mountains, and now you've gotta torture me with all these awesome loops that I don't get to ride. I'd love to live up there! :Jealous Smiley
