Haven’t really done too much up in this area so decided we should check it out! I had to get some work done early morning so we had a bit of a late start & the road was extremely muddy coming in midday. Just HUGE ruts and extremely slippery. If we weren’t driving Tessa, we never would have made it. James drove in the muddy areas because I’m not THAT off road trained yet and there was A LOT of sliding going on. There was only one other truck out there who had a trailer; no idea how he got that down that road, lol. All joking aside, if you do not have 4x4, best stay off this road when wet. Anyway, we finally arrived to the trailhead and started our hike. The creek area was very pretty, serene and relaxing and the geology was interesting! We took a long break on top of a rock formation and just enjoyed the weather & snacks. We still had to set up camp, so we opted to turn around and head back. The way back is some pretty tedious uphill; by the end I was reeeeeeallly looking forward to enjoying a truly back at camp! The road heading back out wasn’t quite as bad since it had dried a bit from the sun, but still just a muddy mess. Tessa has mud everywhere :D Our campsite was SO sweet; totally private, great hammock trees and two existing fire pits, plus a cool rock formation you can climb up! Would definitely bring some friends back here. More to come on next log for day 2 in this lovely remote wilderness area!
