Wednesday morning we loaded the new Polaris RZR and headed over to Sarge and Sarah’s for a ride up Mill Creek. It was a very warm day and we experienced a first—on top of the divide at almost 10,000 feet elevation where the wind is usually blowing hard enough to knock us off that narrow ledge there wasn’t a breath of wind! And it was warm—we have always worn coats when up there.
We encounterd a few snow banks—Sarah decided walking was smarter than riding up the one Sarge is about to tackle and got out shortly after I took the photo. Once I saw how much trouble Sarge had, I got out too!
Sarah and her family own some gold mining claims in the area and we left the ridge to have lunch beside a small lake on one of the claims--
Michael has been busy getting the new machine road ready—the roof and windshield arrived today as well as the cooler I ordered which had to be a specific size to fit in the space the cowboy designated! He installed the horn and I hate to say this Tom and Sandy but I think we will win the “loud horn contest” this year! While in town this morning I licensed the rig and I think we will be ready for our adventure.
Late this afternoon I mowed the grass then spent some time loading the truck camper—yep, we are sticking close to home for the holiday weekend—quieter that way—but then the adventure begins!
