The smoke/haze is slowly getting worse each day, hopefully it wont be as bad as Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are experiencing

Looking at yesterdays track on GE last night showed the possibility of this single track linking up with a dead end

This track was being used last time I rode here three or four years ago
74900
Even the old main track that would be the 4029 if they paved it further north has now become damaged and only used by bikes
74901
This was a well used track before and one I have rode many times
74902

74903
Finally here its back to a decent track again
74904
With its water crossing
74905
All the old Pha Daeng mining complex has gone now and this looks an interesting place to visit sometime, today I am only interested in finding that Chedi
74906
Now a nice new asphalt road goes up to it
74907
This was here on my last trip up here when it was still a dirt track and before the Chedi was built
74908

74909
In the middle of the photo was another older mine that has been landscaped and planted with trees, its now nice and green
74910
To the right of it no greenery now
74911
Old disused tracks from when the mine was operating
74912
I was up here I think three years ago but no Chedi back then
74913

74914
The last mine that was being filled in and landscaped on my last trip up here
74915
Its usually lovely views from up here but sadly not so today
74916

74917
Writing on the Chedi
74918
Inside the Chedi and its nice and cool in here
74919

74920
On the ride home I look in at the Waste To Energy plant that wasnt operational on that trip
74921
