Flat Iron Mesa Backward
Unfortunately, this author had to miss Sunday’s trail. Sometimes, I’ve just got to work, seems wrong but true.
Jim sent me some photos and a trail summary so I will try to do some remote reporting, we’ll see how it goes. Five rigs reported to the South Shell Station to go out and run Flat Iron Mesa backwards. The group included: Larry, Rick, Ber & Charlotte, Susan, and Jim.
Jim took the lead and began the route south to north. Whether purposeful or on accident, a few side trails were explored in the process but everyone eventually made it to the narrow spot just before Easter Egg hill. According to the photos, everyone survived this squeeze too.
Susan and Cheyanne made it. Ber and Charlotte did too!
Rick made it as well.
I think this is a shot of the approach to Easter Egg Hill but I could be wrong.
The county road was reached around lunchtime so Ber suggested a break at the overlook of Hatch and Kane Creek Canyons. It was a great overlook but apparently the weather, which was overcast, started getting worse with some drizzle and colder temperatures. They say a bad day Jeepin’ is better than the best day at work………I’m jealous……
The rigs were circled while everyone noshed.
I think a good time was had by all. Is anyone keeping track of Jim’s trail numbers?? Is this 14 or 15?
See ya on the trail! Unless I have to work….
