After a long day on the trails of Rausch Creek we were heading
back to camp. We were in no hurry to get back and took our
time trolling along the lesser challenging trails at a slow pace.
This was nice. Just a low gear, steady trek back to camp.

Rausch Creek provides primitive camp grounds where people setup
camp in tents and campers. Some camps had camp fires going and
grills cooking up dinner after a long day of rock crawling. We
were camped out at the base of the large staging area overlooking
Our camp consisted of 3 tents and a Jeep trailer converted into
picnic bench. Our Colman grill cooked up some great burgers.
The surrounding pictures were some experimentation with the
exposure on the camera. The result was some cool shots
capturing the sparks in the fire.
Sunday Morning Raffle and Trail
Ride - The chilly Sunday morning air got everyone up and moving early
especially those who camped in tents. Everywhere people were
cooking breakfast foods and the smell of bacon and eggs hung in the
air. OK4WD held a raffle and gave away some great prizes,
including a set of Offroad lights. I was surprised to hear my
name get called out for the raffle on the lights. Thanks for
that OK! The rest of the morning people were either gearing up
for a 2nd day on the trails or were packing up for the ride home.
