Ballad to the Edelwess Cafe (road bike trip)

This is a road trip I used to make in 2007, before the road washed away during winter storms. This road goes from my house in Gold Bar, to Index. It is a gateway to the galena road and Skykomish upper valley, which I hope to tour once this road is repaired.
