    [​IMG]

    The trail to Lake City on the left.
    [​IMG]

    Going down was challenging lots of switch backs and washouts with big rocks.
    going up from lake city could be a problem, with a big GS that is :evil
    [​IMG]

    The trail ends up here Water & Main street.

    I think the Area 51 sticker is influencing the XM radio. Now where's the mud? I'm still waiting for the mud. Barb

    Can't tell you what the rest of the sticker says-it's classified information. Ankle is good, I took off the cast today. Barb
