On the run back to camp the .243 and camera are stowed to give the road full attention. Undulating through warm light and cool shadow following the mountains dry southern to green northern exposures the super-trap coughed chugs at the switchbacks and droned along between. Shoving the wide bars at the steep turns then pulling them back with the throttle, over and over. It was relaxing, like driving a boat. I even got into second gear a few times. Fun ride.
Back at camp I spun spud around and popped her open. M+B for dinner.
I had ridden along the Gospel Hump Wilderness and then the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Took a nap till dusk then walked down through the woods to creek side of a meadow. Sat on a stump with my New England Arms Handy Rifle across my lap and binoculars dangling. I are a hunter. A light wind came up on the back of my neck carrying my man stench out across the meadow, Shouldered my rifle, picked up my cane and offed to my bed. Hunt over.
