Re: The Wow Factor... A Sierra Nevada Motorcycle Tour

Up in the Fire Tower was Walt, who said he'd been up here for about a year. I kind of wondered how a person got a job like this. Says we were his only visitors today, but day prior, he had 30 kids show up at once!




That plotting table for triangulating fires with adjacent fire towers.




360 Degree View!

The view north, can see the Helo, our bikes, Union Valley Reservoir, Ice House Rd to the right, Wentworth Springs Rd on the ridgeline to the north.

Just plain Wow!

Re: The Wow Factor... A Sierra Nevada Motorcycle Tour

Special thanks to the riders on this tours. You guys make these rides such good times! It wouldn't be a Pashnit Tour without the camaraderie you bring for each other- total strangers to best buds, and the enthusiasm for these amazing Pashnit Roads!!

L to R:
David, Tim, Bob, Paul, Tinker, Tim & Tim, Bald guy row: Sonny, Billy, Steve, & Rick. Good times!
