Early morning I set out from my home near the Top Up Tech School on 1317 in Mae On. Just past the village of Huai Kaeo I bear right off Rte 1317 (Sam Kampaeng Road) and stopped at Tharn Thong Lodge for a pick-me-up coffee before the challenging ride across the mountain to Chae Son. This is a great place and quite a gem to us locals. It is an easy ride out here from Chiang Mai. The road over the mountain was being maintained in spots, but I found a lot of dirt, leaves and water. Over the mountain it becomes quite rural before the town proper of Chae Son. This next shot is looking at a little road damage. A friendly attendant in Chae Son. More rural areas before the junction of 1252. Looking back at the junction of 1252. Heading north on 1252. Taking a left here will take you to the 1317 extension not far from Coffee Corner. I stayed right on 1252. Challenging switchbacks for this new rider: Funeral procession near Thep Sadet. I almost dropped my bike parking on mossy road. Very dangerous, that mossy road. ;-) 118 is in the distance. Junction of 118. Left to CNX. Back on the 1317 extension heading back to my home in Mae On Beautiful cloud over nice straightaway (near tree farms). It feels good to open the throttle a bit here after winding through the mountains. Panorama shots near my home: That's all folks!
