You're absolutely correct, I need to protect my nose from sunburn. For M10 I'm planning on rocking a pair of these liquid image goggles which have a nose guard.

Emerging

out of the Caribou NF mountains from McCoy Creek road, we headed across the northrn end of the Gray's Lake National Refuge.



This place is another big hit with the birders,





and the birds too, I would imagine.

Next up

Cranes Flat,



which was largely more of the same,









This was the crossroads where we'd joined up the TID two weeks previously. We'd come from the opposite direction and turned right, and now we'd turn right again so we wouldn't cross our own path, and we wouldn't be backtracking.

We'd take

a slightly different route back to Idaho Falls from here.



This was Bone Road,



To Sellars Creek,



Still a little snow up here, I hadn't routed us this way two weeks ago 'cause of it.



Find the motorbike:

Question:

What is this thing called? (not ladder -- there's a specific name)



I've had a mental block about this thing for ages. You can't look up a picture to find the word like you can look up a word to find the definition. Frustrating.

We were getting close



but even the last few miles didn't disappoint visually,






and that's it, the last bit 'o dirt for M9



I think that's less than a mile from Q's, so, I think he's got it pretty good out there.

Always enjoy reading your report.

It is called a stile.

**Whoops, you are up early posting and got another entry in before I responded regarding the structure used to climb over a fence. The structure is called a stile.

A carry over from home made paint.

Quote:
The main material derivative for red paint was rust, a compound that was easily obtained and cheap to produce. When you combine rust, milk, lime and linseed oil, the resulting paint had a red-ish hue. Thus traditional ”barn red” became a popular and cheap paint that is still widely used on farms today.
