I ended up riding over to Prentice Cooper today. I had not been through there that much before so I wandered around a bit. I found the steep trail all the 4x4's love so much apparently and found myself coming out in Sequatchee Valley by Ketner's Mill. Fun ride... pretty technical. Before that I had rode along the trail that lets you see the river in the valley below. That was a nice view and a steep ride in spots.
The creek crossing has some big rocks in it.. and the water runs crystal clear. Made it through okay.
Oddly quite over there this afternoon. Saw one bowhunter with a buck that had a HUGE wide rack he harvested this morning.
Woulda probably explored a bit more and ridden a bit more aggressively but I prefer company on the really technical stuff... would seem such a waste if I get myself killed doing something stupid and there's not even anyone around to take my boots!
