Ride to the North Cascades

Met a new riding friend at the Sedro Woolley
AM/PM and headed east on Hwy 20



Sauk Mountain





entered the North Cascades National Park



stopped at Newhalem for a bite at the company store



the road had sand in places so we took it easy





this is as far as I wanted to go with no objections from Ron

















I put around 175 miles on the Versys today, my first long day ride,
and really like the machine.

Ride while you can

Did you make it up to Diablo Lake? My dad used to take me camping up there every summer, great place and awesome riding roads.

Life begins where the road ends...

Diablo Lake is pictured in the fourth frame from the last. We were about 2 miles from the Ross Lake trail head, where the road is closed, when we turned around do to the snow and ice on the road.

Looks like a great ride. Will be even better in warmer weather with clean roads!

That was an awesome ride when I did all of the pass last year on my EX500, I can't wait to do it again on my Versys. The ride should be a lot more comfortable than the ninja was!
