Yesterday we did an all day, 60+ mile trip north of Idaho City, Idaho.
I tried to use Every Trail to map the path we took, but it did something funky so I ended up with only like 12 miles of the trip mapped. Time to re-think that.
We went north to Pilot Peak, still had snow on the ground in some places since it’s 8200 feet above sea level. No performance issues at that altitude, which was sweet. We had a few Razors that couldn’t go over (or through) some of the drifts, and the Commander simply attacked them with ease. The views were amazing at the peak, I’ll post some up later (pics are on wife’s phone since I was using the Every Trail app on mine).
From there we drove down to Miner’s Grave. It’s a grave for an unknown miner that died at that spot back in 1888.
We also hit Wilson’s Peak, drove down to Pioneerville (one of the last standing areas of Idaho silver and gold mining communities that was built without nails, it’s all wooden pegs).
We had some nice flat open areas, lots of 45 degree or more hill climbs/downhill paths, lots of switchbacks and gravel/rocky areas, but the views were just amazing.
And today I’m just beat. Was a really long day but still smiling.
