Mountain Maneuvers

We paused here for a while with such a great view.  We were now scouting out the new trails we found across the valley from our usual roaming grounds.  This spot was a good place to begin to head back and leave the trails beyond this point for another day's exploration.  So we backtracked though the valley and headed up and over the next ridge to the more familiar trails.

These hills were not to radical but did offer some great scenery.  From here we headed back to base camp to swap the quads for the larger 4x4's and then headed back out.  Our destination was the mud pit across the creek from the lower end of the pipeline.  But first we made a quick stop at "The Pit" for a little hill climbing.
