Lime Creek ~60 miles.

David packed his chain saw and I packed extra gas and bar oil.

On the way into the south fork we met 4 riders on KTM’s who were also packing a saw. They had been up since Friday clearing trail. After a run down on their trail work we stashed the saw , fuel & oil.

Still couldn’t make full loops because of snow & high water.

We did make it up Roanhide and then down Coyote.

The trial up to Iron Mt and down Bremner were still blocked by snow.

There were tracks thru the drifts but we didn’t want to get on the down hillside of one not be able to get back up.

The South Fork was even running higher than last week. One crossing in a side channel was up to the tank, but there was no current. The water muffled the bike so much it sounded like it was dying.

The bike ran great and I rode a little bit better. I managed to get 25 mpg,

So the range is improving. I need to change the muffler packing this week.

Only had one spode attack- looped the bike on a muddy bank on a creek crossing.

David crossing South Fork of Lime Creek near Hole in the Wall junction.

Looked like there had been a blow out earlier in the week.

The normal crossing was still wider and deeper. I looped my bike on the far bank.
