I always thought this road was called Old Freezout, but whatever it’s called – it’s sure a pretty view.

Snapped the picture from the saddle hustling home from Paddock. Old timers know this as Old Freeze Out not to be confused with New Freeze out which is something like 30 yrs old. Good twisty short climb that has been home to car hill climbs as well as bicycle races.

Beautiful view – haven’t been there since riding my road bicycle up there years ago. Be careful tho there is sand on some of those corners.

I don’t know how many times I’ve driven to Emmett and I never knew this road existed. Just missed the rain storm on my way to Oregon.

This is a great road to ride when it’s clean… but be careful when there’s sand and gravel on the road… nice view of the Emmett Valley

Gentle shakedown ride on a nice sunny evening. The ol’ Pan is starting to think it’s an adventure bike! Some sand on the turns heading up and watch for broken bottles in the parking turnout.

Very easy to reach. GPS coordinates are good. Didn’t know this bluff was there. I provides a great overlook.

There were a few washouts in the turns on the way down from yesterday’s storm. Beautiful view.

Slope Road was my very first challenge site for the year. I I called up my buddy Kevin to ride out with me. Of course his wife and daughter wanted to come, so we both went 2up. Kevin’s brother Todd also came along.

This is an easy ride consisting entirely of pavement. I highly recommend going around sunset, as the view was beautiful.

Then we froze on the ride back. All in all a good day!
