On the way in.
The water supply
See the little river down there, it isn't little.
Camp site, developed now with a official fire ring.
River view, downstream & upstream
I have a few more images but these few describe the area well.
The road in is a normal fire road surface, scraped with a thin layer of crushed
The forest service now has a developed pay camp ground about a 1/2mi further
down the road but in the KLR spirit I pulled into our old free spot.
The developed FS camp has toilets but no water source I could see, just paved
flat spots with tables and a tent area not really different than the day use area.
The road however is paved from about 1/2 b4 our free spot and ends about a 1/2mi.
beyond the FS camp area, all together about 1.5mi. total I'm guessing.
My total was 580 mi., fuel mileage was 48-50mpg with my fat ass and camp load,
About a 6hr. ride to get there with fuel stops and winding road.
I returned at night, my work hours keep me up anyway so why change.
The return was Mon. early AM. and I was facing the lightening storm
from about Willows all the way home to Santa Rosa.
I 1st saw the storm from about Willows and just caught up to the edge
of it about 10 mi. b4 the 505 joined hiway80. got a few drops on my shield
but that was about it. I was very lucky the storm was just in front of me all
the way home.
I was not happy riding those just wet roads at 2AM.
The ride up was not to bad, just HOT and some wind.
I heard it was well over 100 so on the road it must have been 10-20 degree's
