Go ride of course! So there I was.. looking at the work calendar at 7 in the morning... seeing that chances are low, and bike has been surprisingly clean lately... open basecamp, plot a rough course of some potential new discoveries and off we go! Late start you say... i know, the sun is way more up than i wanted it by the time i got up the hills... But hey, beats siting around! Good old trails look very promising A day before this ride, i flew over this hill with one of my clients/friends in his small airplane, and spotted something from memories far away... Lake is in sight. It should be just around the corner now! It's been a while since I've been to the cross! Little photo op and fond memories excavation, trails called. This small system connects to Rowher Flats OHV riding park, but sure makes it more fun way to either transit or enter the park! The next goal was to find a new way onto an old forgotten trail i suddenly remembered. So far so good..... then! That rutty hillclimb is much steeper than it looks... got quite a bit up it before bending my dashboard mounting... of all the things. lets find another way up there.... So i ran around... and around... found some locked gates and missing turns... screw it. Next time with more satellite recon! Off to the cooler elevations! Elevations cool enough for a Yeti! But the sun was racing down, and it was time to find a place to pitch a tent, or something like that. Awesome mountain sunset - located! See y'all in the day 2! Stay tuned!
