Wright's Creek Ride

We're still at the hideaway, doing more work on the remodel than playing, but when we play, we do it right.

Yesterday, we finally got out to play. We didn't leave till 4pm, but even thought it was later than we wanted to get out, it ended up being the perfect timing because we caught an amazing sunset as we were heading back to the car.

We were out on the trails exploring the forest for about an hour when we were both surprised by the view to our left. A very cool waterfall running down a rocky cliff. We learned when we got home that it was Wright's Creek, which feeds into the Tuolumne River.

It was already after 6pm, so we decided to eat our dinner right then and there and enjoy the view.

You probably know that there are lots and lots of bugs in the forest. Since our atv has no windshield, the bugs constantly hit our face and helmets, especially since it's spring and there seem to be even more buggies in the springtime. I don't like bugs in my teeth. But apparently, Jimmy doesn't seem to mind.

We stumbled on a spot where they were doing some logging. We realized that was another good reason to be out exploring in the forest after 5pm, when all the dangerous logging trucks are off our dirt trails.

We were out for about 4 hours when we decided to head back to the car when we came across a vista point and saw the sun setting so we stopped and watched it go down below the horizon. A great ending to our 1st ride of the season.

Here's another video Jimmy and I made of our entire ride where we combined over 3000 GoPro photos into a 4 1/2 minute video.
