Yes I am pronouncing it "crick". Get over it.
So today was one of those days you wish you could just run away for a while...so I did. At 7:30 p.m. I hopped on the 4-wheeler and headed up to the trailers to just take pictures and get away. Nothing like driving really fast around lots of curves and a very bumpy dirt road! Here are a few of the pictures along the way...
The Stop. Look. Listen. sign was put up because of the many accidents caused from going way too fast around the corners and not paying attention. This is the first locked gate...which keeps lots of unnecessary traffic out.
The second and last locked gate is just around the corner on the left...now the road will start to get rocky...up until now you can just drive an ordinary car on the dirt road...the owners of the property through the gate on the right keep the road up.
This is looking back towards Morgan...I definitely love being surrounded by mountains. Yes there is still snow up here...and it's still cold.
The site of where the trailers used to be...They would set up camp for hunting season. From what I've heard it was a huge pain when they decided to move the trailers a couple more miles further into the mountains...but I like them better nestled in the mountains closer to the creek and definitely closer to the hunting spots.
Every summer we would come and spend a few days hiking and just having fun together. This is where we would hike to..."gang bang" is the place the hunters would all be able to look down and gang up on all the deer/elk. My favorite memory of "gang bang" is hiking up with my family and getting to sit on the edge of the cliffs with my brothers friend Chris...who was just like my brother growing up. I was probably only 10...I have always wondered if my mom knew that we were sitting on the edge or if she thought we had just wandered off like usual.
If only I could add all the memories from this one little spot... Some of the things I miss the most are the smells and the sounds. Like the rain on the tin roof during a thunder storm. One summer we had to stay a couple extra days because it had rained so much and it was too muddy to get out.
