My adventure today. .. just a couple pics so far...
Started off in Quilcene WA, at sea level,, riding uphill roads towards and into the Olympic mountains and climb up gravel and primitive asphalt road to the Mt Townsend trailhead. (18.5 miles from Quilcene and 3400 feet higher.) At the trailhead, I hid the bike and bike gear. Threw on the hiking shoes, tried to make it to the top of Mt Townsend.. it was STEEP, my pack was heavy.
Did not make it. I made it up almost half of the 4.1 mile trail and it was getting late, IT WAS STEEP, and I had a long ride, and drive home still. So I had to call it a day and get going 20 miles back to the truck.
In the video riding down the farm road... you see the mountains there in the background? I rode up and around those, and about 10 miles beyond that 3500 foot tall ridge.
Some more pics and possibly video to follow.
