@rider914 - the wilderness sign was about 100 yards from the cabin
Well we're back from another ride - had to take the wife up to see the beautiful scenery - looped the Cottonwood Canyon to Natural bridges - we'll be back
Back to the original ride - after we went to the Scorup Cabin we chatted with a young cowboy rounding up cows in the area - nice guy and what a life.
We were on our way out when the little muddy crossing going in turned into a bigger obstacle going out
Might not look bad to some but we had a heck of a time getting the BRP out!
The beasts after the crossing filled with the remnants of cows living there!
Pretty uneventful trip out after the mudhole - great view of Arch Canyon
Colorado River canyon from the Woodenshoe road - there's a lot of the Woodenshoe after you get out of the pinyon juniper forest - lots of the Woodenshoe!
We would ride through the pinyons - stop and gather some pinyon nuts - ride 'till we ran out then stop and get some more. Pinyon nuts don't happen that often so we get them when we can!
Made it to Hite!
