I had planning your route from 3 to 4 but, ended up east of the wetland somehow?! You make it look easy.
I would never have thought to take the road around to 9. I'll bet it was actually the fastest route on paper - slightly less elevation gained, I think.
Beautiful day up there. Cheers.
Aww, thanks! I had my share of mystery "somehow"s too. Funny how we can get so turned around out there sometimes.
As for 9, I think I was traumatized by all the green last weekend... so the road looked liked a mighty fine option, although I did a mighty fine job of mucking the leg up afterwards. But it looks like the green was no problem at all for you, great leg!
