When we started riding up this road this morning, we soon realized what “big country” we were in!

Views of surrounding mountains were endless and dense green forest stretched out for as far as we could see in almost every direction!

As we gained elevation, the dirt road turned into double track, with hiking single track spurs heading off in a few places.


There were signs that we weren’t the only ones out there, lots of big piles of bear poop on the double track, and moose poop too!

There is much territory left for more exploring and plan to head back that way again soon.
