And blocked good. Prolly needs another week or so at least. So close. OK, hit the GPS's, start scrolling, and break out the maps. OK, here's a possibility... Let's take this trail... maybe it'll go around the snowdrift at a lower elevation. Seems promising for awhile, but then... we have to turn around when we get to this: OK... try again... back to the campground, and then turn left instead of right. This would be re-backtracking. Grrr. Well, the next go-around attempt is a big one. We basically descend out of the mountains on the eastern side, head north for about 30 miles to clear Niles gulch & Rock Creek canyon, and then scoot over west 5-10 miles and head back south about 25 miles back to the T2 trail where we'd pick it up on the other side of the range. A little disappointing... this was going to add 40-50 miles to our route... Once underway, though, we couldn't keep the smiles from our faces... You couldn't ask for better dual sport riding than this.
