Between Withrow and Touhey

I rode the old abandoned rail line grade between the Dutch Henry Draw (bridge #41), eastward to RD A NE a total of 3 miles.  The route ended 1 mile south of Touhey.  Pictures taken April 25, 2014.  Really fun little ride on the quad.  The Maxxis Bighorn Tires eat the sagebrush.  I had permission from all landowners to access this area.

Map of route.

Looking west across the Dutch Henry Draw where bridge #41 once crossed.

Looking east and standing on the east bridge approach embankment at Dutch Henry.

Looking eastward towards RD A NE.

Found this old steel flanger sign still on the post next to one of the grade crossings out there.  Railroads switched to aluminum signs in the late 1940's and early 50's.
