By the Numbers
I rarely ride out-and-backs and when I do it’s usually a hill climb. The ride up Icicle Creek Road isn’t as impressive as Hurricane Ridge or Mt Baker but it offered an exceptional experience on an early morning ride.
Things I saw:
- Gorgeous early morning light
- A hawk fly across the road in front of me carrying a fat mouse
- A beautiful buck walk across the road and up a hill (see photo; one of the few times I wished for a longer lens than my 16mm)
Lovely easy ride to end our short stay in the mountains.
