It was beautiful weather for a trail run, As the day began at 7:30 am in
the Albertson's parking lot. There were a total of 8 vehicles.
They included five full sized Broncos, one F 250, one Chevy 1 ton, and one
Bronco II. Drivers were Jack Cox, Scott Duncan, Bill Adee, Tina Scott, Ken
Konikow, Bob Scott, Chris, and Steve Scott. There were a total of 14 adults
and 9 children.
After a brief stop at the Estacada Ranger Station, we were
on our way to go have some fun. The first stop was were we broke out the ropes and towed
the kids (both young and old) down a nice level road (with the exception of a
couple of wet potholes). There was also a little bit of wheeling but
not too much.
After a brief period we decided to head up a bit higher to find
some deeper snow. On the way up we happened to find a trail that nobody had been
up yet in the snow. Jack dropped his trailer that he was pulling to haul the
trees and we were off to go play. Bob lead the way making fresh tracks in
the snow with almost everybody close behind. At the fork near the end of the
trail Bob, Bill and Chris waited while Scott, Jack, Steve and Ken found the upper
landing. After regrouping at the bottom of the trail, the voyage continued
up to the top (approx. 5000ft). At this point we all had some fun.
There was a hill for some wheeling, a slope for the kids (both young and old) to ride
the sleds and tubes down, Christmas trees to be cut, an area to do some shooting. And
of course even a stump for Scott to park his tire on when he was done playing on the
rock mounds, and climbing mountains. It seemed that fun was had by all from the comments
on the way out over the radios.
