There were three of us riding, Jeff, Tony and myself.  Here we are stopped near Mouse Lake for a break.
We spent most of the day riding above the clouds, in the 3000-5500' elevation range.
Tony and Jeff.  Yes, that IS a WA state license plate on the rear fender of Jeff's KTM (a 2003 EXC 450)
Mt Adams.
WOOOHOOO!!!!!!   Power sliding around the corner.

The horizontal line is the Yozoo trail.  This is a zoomed-in view of the previous photo.
The low spot above (the saddle) is where the trail meets the Bishop Ridge trail.
Yozoo/Bishop Ridge trail junction.  We went right and continued up Bishop Ridge.  My previous ride in this area we went left towards Blue Lake. 
A switchback that required us to get off our bikes and push them around the corner.
Back at the pavement, we took a shortcut and skipped a few miles of trail to get back to our trucks.
