Finding the Jeep Trail

Grant likes to print off the google maps aerial view of whatever mountain range we're riding in and then study it for months before we go to find backcountry spots. This year he saw a jeep trail that he talked about over and over and over. So, the joke of the trip whenever we were somewhere was 'is this the jeep trail?' or 'are we going to the jeep trail?'. Turns out, the last day our destination WAS the jeep trail and we DID find it ;) And here I am stuck while we were trying to find it ... the rest of the crew had already left for MN so it was just Dad, Me and Grant (Mom went shopping in town for the day so Grant rode her sled ;).

Dad checking out the views in an open meadow.

Grant getting himself stuck... and then unstuck cuz there was no way I was going there to help him!

Dad's turn to be stuck!

Nice view up high.

Grant trying more tricks ... he watches too many snowmobile videos ;)

The jeep trail ;)

We followed a ravine off of the jeep trail and then Grant got stuck more ;)

Mom met us back at the trailer to pick us up and on the way back to the cabin look what we saw! How cool is that!? Two bull moose fighting! Here they stopped to look at us. Don't worry - they were a long ways away and down in a creek bed (we were up by the road).

That's cool - we could even hear their horns clinking together!

A good day to end the trip with!
