Headed out this morning in the Jeep. Without Clark.
But with 1911 on my belt and 30-30 Glenfield nestled in the cargo area. What a great day! Gained about 5,000' elevation. Drove in SNOW! Went through an old mining/semi-ghost town area. Poked around there a bit. Took a long dirt road home. That road has suffered from neglect as well as slides and washouts. What was once a road that could be driven in a two-wheel drive sedan, is now a 4-low proposition for good off-pavement vehicles. Full size rigs shouldn't even consider the route anymore, no matter how stout. They're too big for what's left of the road!
Yes, saw elk twice. It was very cool. What a nice day. Good way to get rid of stress.
I believe this is what's left of an old stamp mill near Blewett Pass:
Buildings and an abandoned old shovel near Liberty, Washington:
An abandoned 4wd Studebaker, complete with Warn winch and Warn locking hubs!
Elk! Yes, I saw elk!
Big dropoff. I've hunted here:
Jeep got muddy. It's happy.
All in all, a good day. Covered about 80 miles, some pavement, and an awful lot of dirt. A few mud holes, one of 'em was pretty nasty. Lots of time in 4-low, first and second gear.
