LEG 6, end of road 248.1D to Trailhead – 7.64 miles

As I was on my way out, the unthinkable happened – I tried to get a picture of it/him but I’m not sure it came out. Do you guys see anything?


A dark mass plunged into the woods. Not wanting a low-speed encounter, and still being in 4lo, I threw it into 3rd and mashed the gas. About the time I hit 4th it came flying out of the trees right in front of me! Luckily I remembered that I had a burly front bumper and I didn’t slow down a bit! It/he got knocked back into the woods below the trail and I didn’t stick around to check on the outcome! I made sliding u-turns all the way down the mountain and made record time coming out of that place! Thank you Goodyear for making a quality tire that can handle rocks and sticks on the trail! I came out at the trailhead at about 9pm, topped off in Georgetown, and finally got home at about 10pm.

What was it? You decide, I’m going to go check my front bumper for hair of the creature…

All in all I traveled 36.23 miles in about 7 hours. With almost 8,000 feet of elevation gain in the meantime, it was a good leg-stretcher for the 40
