This is the Trench. The Trench isn't
too bad if you want to slosh through some muddy water.
Lately it's been kind of tame as where in the past it seemed
to be evil. Maybe it was the hidden large rocks in the
Trend that used to break and dent things. Either the
rocks aren't in there anymore or our tires are just larger.
Winter time this trench
becomes an icy mess, frozen on top, thawed underneath due to
the spring feed of water.
Ah, there he is, hey when nature
calls. Then again he
was riding in Paul's kidney jarring
Uh... wrong turn Jeff or just checking
if reverse works?
Heading off down into the valley, we skirted an
area of the main trail that had been washed out late last year
in some heavy rain. Last fall this area had been so
badly washed out that the trail had to be bypassed because it
was impossible to navigate the section. Coincidentally
the trip last fall was cut short due to a gas leak in my carburetor
and a lack of other vehicles on the trip. Basically there was
only two vehicles and without my Jeep, it was one
vehicle. Because its not wise to travel remote trails in
one vehicle, we opted to cruise around in Jeff's Scion and we
visited a few locate places like Bilgers Rocks and the Curwensville
Dam. This spring though the trail has seemed to fill
itself back in and was passable. So we headed down
towards the Tree Stand.
