Rimrock 15

Well this started out as a few friendly invites on Facebook, that blossomed into nearly eighty invitees. In the end there were only six rigs to show up.   The preliminary trail line up for the weekend.

Saturday 7/25/15

We’ll take the 1000 rd to Butcher Knife or 642 to Divide Ridge 615, to Donniker Pass 636 to Blue Lake for lunch. After lunch, we’ll continue on the 636 to Short & Dirty 637, then hit Spruce Creek 677/A back to the 1010 rd to the Y and head up Buckhorn Gap 651/A to pick-up Cryin’ Frank’s Hill, finishing up on the infamous Leaning Tree 641 back out to 651, down to the 1012 & 1010, and back to camp…

Okay, that’s incredibly ambitious! So after getting to Blue Lake at 13:00, we decided to make a crazy change skipping 677/A, Buckhorn, & Leaning Tree. Taking a “new” trail 639 off the ridge. Unbeknownst to us this is a down ONLY trail, STRAIGHT DOWN! But Mandi was at the wheel and got us down safely, we arrived back at camp around 19:00.

Sunday 7/26/15

Roll out time 08:30. We took Pickle Prairie 609, then moved over to Louie Way/Gap 608, and Ed was willing to show us some “unlabeled” trails, that he knew in the area, tying back into Pickle Prairie Loop 609A. Sunday’s trails were a touch easier than Saturday’s, but still very challenging at times. We made it back to camp by 15:00 to allow most of us to get home before dark…
