These are for those who wonder what the road looks like.

Oh and for those intereted the pass from bench road to bench road is 42.61km
with a max altitude of 5126 feet.

Sorry about the reflections I had the camera set up wrong at the start.





It was raining the whole way out...but these leaves look a little white don't they?

Near the top of the first mountain.
33595


Looking back into the valley.
33597


33599


Even closer to the top of the first mountain.
33622


It's an eagle I swear...just a little slow on the draw.
33601


This goes to the top of the first mountain.
We weren't going to do it in the snow.
It doesn't look bad but there are a couple of ledges near the top.
33602


33603


It really started to snow/sleet here.
33618


And back into the forest. This part of the trail is strangely similar to the whipsaw.
33605


Mandatory flex shots. This is pretty close to the highest point on the traverse.
(the highest point is actually maybe a km or so behind us but there wasn't anywhere
to stop with all the slipperyness.

And then these spudspudspudspudspud showed up. Turns out my cousin went to school with one of them.
