I bailed and came back down to the road, but it sure was tempting to continue. I had no idea how far the next trailhead was, hell, I had never HEARD of the Rainbow Trail before.
I was just wondering which part was your favorite-sounds like it ALL is.
I'll look you up next time.


You did good to turn around on that section: It get's gnarlier. It's one of my favorite sections though.
