Mike and I set off taking the 1080 to just past Tha Wang Pha then taking a left onto the 4008 to enjoy this smaller quieter road
Image

Image
Now on the 4001 and its my first ride today along this very twisty scenic road, at the start theres something going on
Image

Image
Those hills are just a taste of whats to come
Image

Image
Its certainly a lovely twisty surface

Nothing is showing flowing under the bridge then the water reappears from underground
Image

Image
I was expecting it to be cool up here in the hills but its a very hot day
Image
We stop in a village

To become the Huai Kon, it looks like the remains of a previous bridge at the bottom

Image
A rickety looking old bridge in the distance

Image
Finally we get back on the paved surface
Image
We ride to the 1291, turn left onto it and ride back to Nan
Image
Back at Tonys Place and it appears the pets are the cashiers tonight, I guess my dinner will cost me a nice juicy bone and a fish steak
Image
A lovely pizza for 195 Baht
