    Now I am really glad I made it up last Saturday for one of my most memorable rides up 39. Still a little sad that it is now open.

    Looks like the snack bar at Crystal Lake is open. That's a good thing!

    I think that the road opening is a good thing. An open road will make it less isolated - so I'm now willing to do a solo ride up there. The ability to refill bottles that the snack bar makes it logistically easier. (Drinking from that stream isn't for me.)

    I'll probably still drink from that steam - It's not very often you can drink water "straight from the source" like that... I'll probably drink from it until I hear it's no longer safe....

    It's a spring, not a stream. Big difference.
