So since I hadnt taken the ranger wheeling in awhile I figured it was about time. I loaded it up and headed to the island since I was already planning on heading there. With no real idea on where to go I surfed the web and found directions on how to get to oliphant lake.
It was a awesome day exploring around and having fun. Had a couple [cheers] and a little [stoned] so I must say Im a little surprised nothing broke
Didnt push the ranger to hard since I was by myself but I did try some obstacles
Like this one, didnt make it up... this time

wandered around and finally found the lake after a couple dead end trails
