    Fun ride today, Yardstick lead us down a new path that will not be part of the regular rides but was actually a lot of fun. A few dead ends, one I THOUGHT was a dead end :huh

    Looks like

    OldtimerTC. Guy. Refokus, Wan, Utefan, Me, Mike955i & Mark on bikes. Roger (with my wife as co pilot) & Jersey Dave with Joanne as co pilot.

    I'm good for an in and out, or counter clockwise through. The scenery is great either way. We'll see how everyone feels once we get to the Ovens & River.

    You found one of our Rock Crawling trails!! The name of this one escapes me now but the challenge of climbing this with a one ton jeep will not quickly be forgotten. How did you guys do riding up it?

    I figured that's what it was. The rocks were slick from rock crawler tires polishing them. We went down it. You can see how that went in the ride report. Going up would have required more rock stacking. There was a pretty good step right at the bottom.
