Made it into Yellowpine yesterday. Roads are clear of snow all the way in. Southfork was fun with the new paving. Got a great brisket sandwich at the Tavern. Hailey said I.was the 1st bike in of the season. Tried to get to Stibnite. Made it to about milepost 2 where I hit a sheet of ice so I turned around. Great day trip.
