The route 1169, 1081, 1256, 1081, 1080

Total distance 314 km
Image
Heading out of town on the 1169 where the road widening is taking place, I have always loved this curving well surfaced road and I think it wont be the same fun once its been widened, lots of the trees will disappear along with some of the tight twisty curves
Image
On the 1256 I see a few big bikes out today
Image

Image

Image

Image
Quite hazy in places now
Image

Image
The lovely 1256
Image

Image
I stop at the viewpoint to put my pullover on as its freezing right up this high
Image

Image
By the time I reach Bo Kluea the temperature is a lot warmer and I take a left onto the 1081
Image

Image

Image
Further on and the surface isnt so good but its not as bad as I expected
Image

Image
Theres been a big landslip here
Image
Even the safety barrier is nearly in the river
Image
The Nan river must have flooded badly this year even up here
Image
Thats one wonky bridge
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
The scenery is superb as always
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Getting closer to Huai Kon and the surface is better
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
This reservoir was actually over flowing
Image

Image
After Huai Kon and the road becomes the 1080 and its on towards Nan
Image

Image
I finally got to try one of Tonys burgers tonight, lovely it was too, I was full up with this plus a portion of chips which together came to only 119 Baht.
