I started the weekend off right, by connecting with Kevin to take my up Stoney Fork for my first time. Such a beautiful area. Such a tough climb. Getting to the FS gravel road is just about as hard as the road itself!
After winding around and over 2 mountain ridges, we entered the town of Dillingham. A stark reminder that not everyone in the area has a good life.
Seasonal businesses that might never re-open.
And then the climb, lots of time to get lost in the pedal stroke.
Finally at the top.
Rewarded with great view on the return trip down the Parkway!
Sunday I hit the trail on the mountain bike for a Laurel/Pilot/Pilot Cove loop.
