Fall is fast arriving and I need to get a good mountain drive in before things go all rainy here in the PNW.  I've secured time from parental duties in the coming week to have some fun.  How does this drive look?

For some reason the link does not work for me.

It's got a bunch of extra stuff besides the URL pasted into the link field, starting with "Shared route from Leif Erickson Trail..." I was able to see it by inspecting the source in the browser but I still couldn't copy it and stopped short of hand-typing the URL cheeky

EDIT: Also, nice work on availing yourself of the waning days of the gorgeous PNW summer; I always fail to do that and by November I'm beginning the slow descent to madness in February.

Might want to take Cornell up to skyline to NW McNamee, and take that to Burlington than running up 30. It's a prettier drive than the highway.

Or better yet, stick to skyline until you get to Rocky point Rd, and take that down to 30.

Yeah, I live right off skyline so that's an easy correction.

Oh perfect. Skyline is way more interesting than 30. Low speed limit but it's pleasant.

Yeah, I have a loop I'll drive down and back up the hill with some wicked twisties mixed in it and am not gone for more than an hour.  It's a wonderful drive.

Looks like fun. 47 South out of Vernonia is fun, too!
