I was told last night a storm is forecast for North Thailand and it was noticeably breezier and felt fresher going up the 1266 this morning.
Upon riding back along it at 15.30 I was feeling cold up at 1250 metres but it soon warmed up as I got closer to Mae La Noi

The track goes a fair way then becomes single track, its made a bit difficult in places by the chopped down trees getting in the way
