Great pic's Mike! It took me three loads to get them to all to come up, but I would have done it ten times to see these!!! I see by the two road pic's that you have plenty of experience doing that work. Excellent grade!!!! Is that hill side an old burn? Like the 91, wish mine looked that good. Thanks again for the post!

I don't know how you ever get any work done! I'd waste every daylight hour admiring the scenery and tramping around in those mountains!
