At a Glance
Let the Eagle soar
Like she's never soared before
From rocky coast to golden shore
Let the mighty Eagle soar


Former Attorney General John Ashcroft will forever be remembered for his stirring paean to NorCalís DH60. This quiet flight through the varied, if unspectacular dry-country Scenery that surrounds the stateís second largest natural lake wonít be hurt by a little eulogizing though. Thatís because itís located in one of the least populated counties in California. The initial hop through loose, pine forest north of Susanville prefaces a soaring climb up the flanks of Roop Mtn. On the subsequent descent, the road hunts through the Brockman Flat lava beds on the golden, western shore of the lake before thermalling up, down and back up the gentler topography that faces the lakeís rockier eastern coast. The first third has concentrated Twistiness, while the remainder sweeps more gently and is more suitable to flying at higher speeds. The older variety of Pavement causes few problems, though you probably wouldn't mind if it was a little wider on that first piece. And there's so little roadside development that even a large convocation of riders wonít impair its remote feeling. Yes, the Eagle soars all right but Ė no offense, John Ė we still prefer the sound of pipe music.
