Since I'll be away from me jeep for a bit over 2 weeks coming up I needed to get outside again today before I leave.
I went up to Switzerland Trail, did a few of the offchutes, then hit up Pennsylvania Gulch. For those that went on Penn Gulch last year: it is a lot nicer w/o the giant snow drifts. Still isn't hard at all, maybe a 3/10.
Oh yeah, somewhere up there I lost my cell phone - not sure if I am stupid enough to try and go find it tomorrow after work or not. There were like 5 spots (all on offchutes) that I could have dropped it
The trouble with the offchutes was that it was so tempting to go up the trails, but then on the way back down they are VERY steep and it is way too easy to start sliding. Kinda scary (err, stupid?)
For those who ran Penn Gulch, remember the only real rock on the trail?
And lastly a big asz steel door, kinda looks like it belongs on a submarine
where you going? vacation? and the pics look good! a guy i know on moorhead has a big steel door like that leading into a bombshelter in his basement. it is the coolest thing i have ever seen, bombshelter ...........
I lost my cell and it is just too important to consider it a loss and buy a new one so I attempted to retrace 5 hours of offroading from Yesterday, in just a couple horus of daylight today. I figured it was so warm today there was a good chance that the snow had melted around it.
I AM THE CHAMPION!!!
The last place I was going to look I found it...the second I saw it I remembered slipping on the ground there as I climbed up the berm. I think a banana is in order
In an effort to get home faster tonight then taking the rest of the trail I drove through the town of Sunset and then through the old mining down of Wall Street. I'll have to revisit these towns in the summer w/o a doubt. Lots of intact mining history left there!
Oh oh oh, the third pic I posted is where I lost it too...right behind the rear left tire. Stupid snow I almost didn't make it up to that spot, all of my tire spinning yesterday getting up there the first time made it turn into ice today. Had to dig for a while to get traction.
