The trouble started when we came up to a shelf that I immediately had some doubts about (Why do pictures never turn out as extreme as the situation looks in person?
I took a bad line and managed to hang up on the front passenger control arm (Easily bending the mounts). Fortunately we managed to strategically place some rocks and got unstuck. It was getting late so we turned around and headed back down.
Today we stopped by the Discovery Center to pick up a Gold Fever Trail map to take it slow. We took Polique Canyon Rd to Holcomb Valley Rd and continued all the way to the Lucky Baldwin Mine behind Gold Mountain.
Seeing the entrance to Gold Mtn Rd (3N69) off of Holcomb Valley Rd I am glad we did not make it all the way through (At least until I can get Savvy under amour and lockers) considering we were alone (Another reason never to wheel alone).
We headed back West on Holcomb Valley Rd and turned north on to Arctic Canyon Road. We followed Arctic Canyon Road as it turned west and eventually opened up to a clearing where we were greeted with the entrance to John Bull Trail. Along the way we ran in to a three-wheeler that did not make it. Along the whole route and up the John Bull Trail there were orange arrows spray painted which I assume were from a recent run.
