A few weeks ago, we went to a place called Black Rock. We heard it was a cool place and we wanted to see how the truck would do on a nice bumpy dirt road...and im glad to report that it did famously! ;0)
It was SO pretty there and we saw like 1,000 deer on the way! Well, it was more like 50 but thats alot!! On our way up we came across this indian shrine thingy on the edge of a cliff...(Ishi indians use to live up there..i heard that some still do!) I couldnt decide if it was cool or creepy..you be the judge!
Here are some pictures of the area..
and this is Black Rock...
its basically a ginormous.black.rock.
Mill Creek ran through the area so we decided to get our line wet and do a little hiking! However, we didnt stay long because it was getting dark (we got there kinda late) AND i was told by a reliable source that there was a large population of 'cats' up there a.k.a. mountain lions...so we hit the road ;0) It was fun though and we found a cool campground there so we will definitely be back! Now for our other outdoor outing... a couple days ago we were driving around the area and found a dirt road on my handy-dandy GPS that apparently crossed the river.. so we decided to explore. It was a steep windy road down the canyon. It was gorgeous outside and a great day for exploring :0) ...20 min down the road this is what we found!
I couldnt resist the urge to fish!
Matts photography skillz ;0)
We are glad we found a good spot to fish so close! We also found a fire lookout tower on the top of a super tall mountain which i am dying to go check out...maybe another day! Thats all folks!
