This was day five of six of our Sierra Ancha vehicle camping/hiking trip. This day hike in-a-row #4 was expected to be another typical off-trail bushwhack with a new area to explore.

Oregon Hiker and I had previously discussed a couple of new area hike options for this last full day hike, and we both agreed that the Grapevine Trail #135 back to explore above the Black Brush Uranium Mines had more exciting rewards to offer us :) .

From past experience, our Sierra Ancha Wilderness can be very non-forgiving (brutal) for those who sometimes take its off-trail exploration for granted. Normally we spend a considerable amount of at home pre-planning time for new area explorations with high probability drawn and then downloaded/uploaded GPS Planning Routes to follow before just taking off into the wild.

Today was our exception to the rules, and we both paid dearly :lol: ..
