    Still pretty dry here so I'm gonna check out some new entry\exit points to some of the creeks used as roads here.

    The orange and red lines are the new routes to check for access to the creek\river at the bottom of the valley ... Blue lines are known good routes ...

    I've done scoping out and marking routes before here and once you get out there, it all changes ... Most of that will be 100% un-rideable due to the steepness of the terrain ... It'll make for 1 or 2 days riding :)

    Made a little hay here on 2 days of riding ... Got a hometown MX\SX race this Sunday, so I gotta put this on the back burner a week or so ...

    The top, straight yellow line in the middle upper part of this pic is where these pics were made ... The trail is pretty cool running off that spur and yep, it too steep for me to deal with alone going all the way ...

    Here's the look on my voyager GPS ... It's a little beat-up but still ticking

    Here's the view from the top looking down into the valley that I'm trying to ride down into.

    This is about the sticking point ... These two people were about all smiles but spoke little English.

    If I ever get back in that creek, I'll check for the entry point on the river side and try to ride back to the top and see how that goes ...

    Here's a few pics on the next trail ... The second orange line (from the top) on the top right side of the GPS pic.... it was a cool trail but again, I could not make it to the valley below ..Too steep again and plenty of people out there to find me if something happens.

    This pic is a little interesting ... Metal just is not used way out here in most cases other than re-bar... But it is here and the tree is taking it ... There is not alot of waste out here either ... So, I hope to remember to take them a hacksaw next time out with some blades and see if these guys wanna save that metal.

    Finally got back around to another route to check for getting into Tag Valley from a new entry point off the top side ... Didn't quite make it again on this one ..


    In the top pic, this route is the start of orange line on the left side that has that fork towards the end of it ... Tried both routes ..The long one here in the4 VID, played out and the second turned into a serious goat trail and I'll have to go down into the river and try to ride both routes back up to the top next..

    That's the valley in the foreground I'm trying to ride down into.
