Washington Taenum colors

Recommended Posts

They are changing. Nows the best time to ride the mtns in my opinion. Conditions where perfect...sunny and maybe 60. Colors are to die for and this is merely an iphone camera. Doesnt do it justice. On a side note...I was at the top of Windy pass going to take a pict and recieved a text. I had full 4 bars. Was able to send mutltiple picts from there back to a friend. Thats crazy.:thumbsup:

It was a good day.

I saw you up there. (that bike is hard to miss)

There were 4 of us on the side of the trail and you road by solo.

Hope you had as good a day as we did.

Nice pics

It is an amazing place. If you want to see what could of been in the GP -get access to the motorized recreation planning documents file at the GP forest headquaters. Many more trails were planned but lack of user support to combat the green weenies caused a "pro multiple use" Forest/District to back away from projects and grant applications. Langille Ridge in the late 80's and into the early 90's was rescued from obliteration by the the Northwest Trailriders Association, a former NMA club whose signature ride was the "Mount St Helens 100 Trail Ride. The ride feel into oblivion due to buearacratic red tape and unreasonable permitting hurdles.

First time I rode Langille -on a 1985 Honda XR350 -there was no evidence of a trail tread except a few short sections from McCoy Peak intersection to Bear Creek going south. We spent many years getting the brush and trail tread re-established then the 1996 floods came and required a gargantuan effort to build a trail though all the washouts on the 28 road to access Langille. Many at the FS just wanted to "let it go".

Just be aware that this great treasure could be snatched out our hands pretty easily without constant political pressure and user involvement.

Wow Marc, thanks for the reminder....could you imagine losing that area? it would have to be tooth and nail and they would have to peel my cold dead hands off my throttle / clutch for sure.
