I went on a ride up to Kneeland on the KLR and since I hadn’t been out on the bikes for several weeks I just wanted to ride. On those occasions, I tend to leave the SLR at home and just take the little Pentax point and shoot. Which invariable means I’ll see spectacular scenery and wish I had brought the SLR and a tripod. Such it was on this trip. Since it had rained quite a bit the previous week, the creeks were running full, and I came across one waterfall that I had never seen before. Looking at it on Google Earth I could see there wasn’t much drainage above the waterfall so it only runs for a short time after a rainstorm.
Just before I turned around to head home I stopped for this scene, which gave me an indication that the ride home was going to be a lot colder than the ride up. As I descended, the fog continued rolling in and at some points visibilty got so poor I was having to ride about 10mph in order to see where I was going. Once again I was happy to have those heated handgrips on the KLR.
