We had a perfect weekend up here weather wise so I took a couple rides one to NY on Sat and one in VT on Sun.
The NY ride included a ride to my favorite road in the NE, Tracy Road. I hadn't been there since the floods from Ireene. It wasn't too bad with just a couple of spots where they had washouts.
I then headed up to the high peaks area in the Adirondaks. There were a ton of cars parked along the route that were hiking. This is one of the most beautiful areas anywhere as far as I'm concered. I stopped to take a couple pics.
From there I went down into Keene where the floods were real bad but it was pretty much back to normal. I then traveled over to Elizebethtown to another of my favorite roads that had also got a lot of flood damage but it was open and fully repaired. It's called the Lincoln Pond road.
Sunday's ride was with the Combat Vets Motorcycle Assc.
We all met along the way up to northern VT where we stopped for a breakfast brunch. This is our usual place for meetings.
After breakfast we made our way through the mountains of VT on some roads that I had never been on (there aren't many in VT) and these were some great roads with lots of nice twisty's. The sky was blue and it was a beautiful ride. We made our way down to the VT veterans cemetary where we placed some flowers on a brother's grave that just got his grave marker.
I split up from them there and headed back through the mountain passes towards home.
I stopped along the way to take a couple more pics
This one shows the power of water and what it can do to guardrails. Note how small this stream was before the flood and how it rolled the guardrails into a ball.
That whole section of road was washed out completely.
When I got to the top where you can look back at NH and see the White Mountains.

From there it was a ride through one more mountain pass that many here have been on during the Braveheart in Lake George or the RK rally this year.
