    See last year's low temp? Imagine life here in 1890? No gortex back then. But you did get Grouse for lunch.

    Setting sun on Monitor Pass - look closely and you can see the Fire Lookout tower ahead. We're at the very top of the Sierra.

    A quick shout out for our other host lodging - West Walker Motel - great lil biker-friendly place. We rolled up and the owner walked out, welcomed everybody and asked if anyone would like a cold beer. Cooler was waiting for us. Then walk across the street to dinner.

    On over to the Big Hill Fire Lookout along Ice House Rd

    Can't quite read that? How's this.

    View from the fire lookout isn't too bad. This is Union Valley Reservoir (all man-made stuff up here), and the penstock you can barely see at very center flows on over to Loon Lake. Launch point of the Rubicon Trail for the jeepers headed to Lake Tahoe.

    But the real highlight of bringing the guys up here is this.

    We got a real treat when the pilot walked out and gave us a full tour of the aircraft.

    Specifically modified as a heavy lift helicopter and to get Fast-Rope firefighters on the ground. Helo takes the guys to the fire- the jump out of the helicopter hovering above fire. Slide down the rope hanging out the side and go to work!

    Expensive piece of machinery. To give expensive some scale- Each blade costs $1,000,000 -each- to replace. Yes, 6 zeros.

    Reservoir to the right is Ice House Reservoir - and that peaky peak on the right is Pyramid Peak. Just on the other side is Lake Tahoe.
