Fantastic Views Riding Today Pics/Video Included!

Recommended Posts

Went on a very nice, somewhat mellow sight seeing ride today. Mostly fire roads with a little ST in between, but the views were awesome. Here are some pics to share. It was just me and XLEnduroMan. By the way he took the first dirt nap I have seen him take like less than a minute after I took one. They were both very low speed step in a hole type thing. Mine was a front tire washout on some slimy red clay.

The gas up before the adventure.

A buttload of shells from many drunken destructive adventures of teens I'm sure.

Some of the leftover appliances from those drunken adventures.

Helicopter Pad for past logging/fire events

The shooting range used to have a cool little track around it.

Eide, drink, shoot. Used to be fun. Now it's all trash and broken glass.

Thr roads on the other side of Ponderosa Rd. are fun and fast.You can loop all the way to the chopper pad from there.

Yeah, I know of 4 or five places that look just like this in Lassen National Forest. I feel like this forest is my home and we have always collected our shells or shot at watermelons so the bird can eat the remains. Fruit not only makes a wonderful snack, but also a very theatrical target.:thumbsup:

Yup it is a shame a lot of Lassen NF is trashed like that.

Not that I am condoning the behavior, cuz I'm not. That spot is ruined because of that $hit.

Take a look at the map and you will see that is not Lassen NF. It is private timberlands. Maybe 1/2 mile of the trail is actually in the NF. I was about to give it to the FS during the route designation then realized that was against my bteer judgement plus it isn;t FS lands.
