    Had this plan since Tony and I rode to one set of communication towers. We decided needed to ride up to the saddle and ride to Hauser Peak. Then we would ride back down to the saddle and up to Mt. McDill. The descent would be bushwhacking/trail finding back to civilization.

    The goal was lots of climbing and some nice mileage with some adventure on the way down.

    Travis and Jonathan joined Tony and I on our quest.

    After lots of gravel grinding, shooting the breeze, picture taking and bombing back down to the saddle we began our climb up to the second tower well behind schedule.

    Unfortunately, Tony had to bow out before we reached the second tower due to a commitment to his honey. Good for him keeping his word.

    Had to ride the rock wall road.

    Nice-looking scenic cruise, guys. TFPU, Tucker.

    Love reading about these lesser traveled (or at least lesser reported) forays.

    Lesser traveled, perhaps due to some lesser reporting?
