The route 108, 3009, 

Total distance 153 km
Image
I head north off of the 1096 following the irrigation canal to its right on a nice stretch of asphalt when suddenly the road veers east
Image

Image

Image
There is a wall built across the road
Image
A detour around the wall is there
Image

Image
This twisty road eventually makes its way to join the 3009, on the other side of the irrigation canal it looked like a new asphalt surface curving off to the west that will be explored next trip along here
Image
I take a left off the 3009 to visit the Nam Mae Saluang reservoir

These monks robes look more red than orange to me

I ride to the end of a paved surface at N18.59.753 E098.48.241 then ride on dirt for a while as my GPs shows this dirt track will reach the 4017 but it soon turns steep wet and slippery so its back to paved time

    Nice looking food Colin but I thought you’d tucked in before remembering to take a picture!
