Great lookin' truck!!

You were camped probably 12 miles from my house. I have been back to that area once but I don't think I ever went up above treeline where you were. Looks like the Beast handled it nicely.

Sorry we missed you!

We climbed quite a ways and ended up in a saddle on a ridge. We could see ski-slopes across a couple of valleys at altitudes below us.

We ended up at an intersection that had the trail going four directions :
1. back where we came from
2. up one side of the ridge
3. up the other side of the ridge
4. forward and to two possible exit routes.

We stopped up on top and found we had a cell signal, so I took the opportunity to call and wish my Dad a Happy Birthday.

While we were up top we saw a number of other vehicles come by, all motorcycle and ATVs. We talked to a number of them and the concensus was that we would not fit on the trail if we continued forward. That meant we had to return the way we had come.

This saddle was another beautiful spot.

After we left the saddle on Saturday morning we backtracked the way we came Luckily we only met 2-wheelers and only close to a spot the could pull over to let McBeast move on by.

On the way out we went back to make sure went went through the ruins of the Caribou mining town to get photos.











Did anyone lose a Hat ?? We noticed the hat on the way up on Friday, but decided we needed a photo.

Further down the mountain we got closer to the fall colors, ran across a very interesting driveway entrance, and ran across another SMB....









We we surprised to see another SMB sitting in a driveway. We went up t the door to say HI, but nobody home.
