Had a great weekend of atving, exploring, and drinking beer around the campfire, or was that campstove Jeepnut? [f] It was awesome to meet ya! [cheers] Looking forward to a trip down there next summer!

Only posting a few pics tonite, I am re-writing this as somehow I managed to lose the last half hours worth of posting and uploading pics![2]

Friday went up to the top of Mohawk Ck to an elevation of about 7000', watched a lightning show for a while which fortunately went past us![2b]

Part of the Beatrice mine, Jeepnut posing outside an old adit.

Had to take a run up this creek just because we could! And before the eco nuts start screaming, there were no spawning fish here unless they were able to fly because below this point the creek is set after set of high falls!

Ryan successfully crossing the creek to check out the old ore mill. Someone did not successfully make it, and unfortunately I didn't have my camera out when he landed on his ass in the very cold water![15] Did your pants dry out yet Jeepnut?[15]

Hey Speedy, I'm assuming this is you? If it is you, then your computer is obviously still logged in under John's name, you might as well take advantage of it! [c]

No prob dragging your Grizz there and back! Glad it didn't fall off the back of my truck!

I had a blast[36] thanks for having me. We are going to have to teach that Wayne guy how to build a fire.Iam sure Dean could give Wayne a few pointers in this area[9] Those mine trips awesome[h]

Looking forward to next years battling John Wayne fires[redneck]


And yes that water was fricken cold[33]...........[15]

I little late, but more pics from the long weekend! Day 3 went above Trout Lake, past the old townsite of Ferguson. Climbed to over 7000' on 2 seperate trails, lots of old mines everywhere!


Only saw this black bear the whole weekend.

So this is where I called it quits before I wrecked the Kodiak! As it was, Speedy had a moment just past here on a rock stair! Ryan on the Honda said it was so loose and steep that he couldn't get off the quad to help Speedy because his quad wouldn't stay put without both front and rear brakes on!
