^^^ np. trip was pretty fun and weather was perfect! other van buddy never got back to me, but had another couple hit me up last second and wanted to try a new place. they showed up right about dark after getting a touch lost...
camp friday night.
from across the river.
my friends slaying them fishes...
kind of hard to tell from my cell pic, but the water on the southfork is very clear.
while my friends were fishing i started wandering back to camp. a killdeer was going off, so i thought id try to find its nest. never did find it, but i must have got close as i saw this little guy come running out from under my feet. was a fast little sucker and wasnt afraid of the river at all. jumped right in, lol.
ps, excuse mah dirtyass nails, was camping n'stuff, lol.
also had a small run in with a bear. was by myself and decided to take a quick jaunt up a trail on the motorbike. about a mile up the trail i saw a small straightaway and gave it some juice. there was one big bush i couldnt see around and sure enough, right as i got to it a 4' round bear came bolting out from behind it. opposite direction, but still scared the hell outta me. i knew it was a youngster, so as i was throttling away from it hoping i hadnt pissed off mama. i would have sworn i saw mama bolting at me in my peripheral vision and i got on the gas. sure as shit, the trail got super tight and i was still on street tires and getting no traction. i did my best to stay on trail the entire time trying to look over my shoulder thinking to myself that NO ONE knows where i am atm and i really needed to get away, lol. well turns out there was nothing chasing me, but i didnt know and i wasnt taking a chance. i wish i had a video of it, i can only imagine how funny the while situation looked...
on the way home i decided to check out a small road i had never been down. was really glad i did as i stumbled onto a small version of city of rocks. heres a few pix from my shortcut.
will definitely be heading back to this little area. not sure if camping is ok back in there, but want to spend a little more time looking around and getting some more pix.
