Once I'm out of the meadow I just have a short climb before dropping down to Lake Davis. Looks like a busy vacation spot with a private campground and 3 National Forest ones. I stop at one of the Forest campgrounds to fill up on water and dump some trash. The pavement ends as soon as I get to the northwest corner of the lake, I don't see another vehicle until 23 miles later when I hit pavement again near Genesee.
The road is in pretty good shape in spite of some hairy downhills on loose gravel. I drop quite a bit of altitude, about 2,000 feet worth, as the road follows a creek down to Genesee Valley. I'm sure I'll have to claw back a lot of this and I turn out to be right. The paved road towards Antelope Lake has about 1,500 feet of climbing in it. On pavement though so I don't have to work too hard.
I find a worn-in campsite next to a creek and decide to call it a day. I want to camp next to a water source so I can take a bath and clean some stuff. The creek is cold as you would expect but the sun is still beating down so the bath only gets a 3 on the 300ps Mountain Stream Bathing Index of Pain. I patch some tubes and do some other chores to kill the rest of the day before making a huge dinner of pasta.
