Final Ride of 2020: Pine Creek Ranger Station 28 Dec 2020

Oldmanriver and I were able to get out and run up to the Ranger Station this past Monday. Roads were over all clean and clear (though a little damp in the shadows) most of the way. We only started to encounter ice on the roads once we reached the ranger station itself. Temps were in the High 30's and Low 40's most of the way, however, there were a few places it dipped down to around 33 degrees (according to my air temp sensor). I only encountered one spot where I had any traction issues, but it was only a minor step out, and I think it was actually due to a little mud on the road.

Made a short stop at the Cougar Store for fuel and coffee.

We were thinking of stopping for a bite to eat at the Cougar B&G on the way back, but decided not to as we didn't know if Skamania county was in Phase 3 or not, and we were starting to get concerned about losing the daylight on the way back into town.

Though the parking lot looks clear hear...

A lot of it was a bit frosty.

That's frost on the side of the road.

We had considered possibly going a little further, but once we saw the frost at the ranger station, we decided that we had gone far enough. Also, the temps had dropped down to around 33 degrees here, and we figured that the icy conditions would only get worse.

Fortunately, we made it back into town just as the sun went down.

It definitely was a great afternoon ride, and a wonderful way to send out 2020.

It's always nice to see your RR's Greg. I dream of a day where I can join you all riding again especially on a long distance ride.
