Amanda, Stacia and I arrived at Sandflats just before 10am. Since no one had arrived at the trailhead, I decided (on F’s suggestion) to take them up and over Baby Lion’s Back. There’s two ways you can approach Baby Lion’s Back, from the front side, you can see what’s coming and it’s a bit less steep. To get to the backside, you head down a sandy trail, make a sharp turn to your left and start climbing steeply. Clearly, I just didn’t really tell anyone what was going on and went the back way. 🙂
When we arrived at the Hells Revenge trailhead, everyone started to pull in. We had the whole lot to ourselves which was a surprise for a fall Sunday but also a relief as we knew with six vehicles (mostly novice drivers) we were going to be sloowwww.
F had fun seeing what our little jeep could do (and seeing how much he could scare me in the process). There were some fears (mostly conquered), some victories (Pat and Cindy should be proud of themselves and their stock FJ Cruiser), only minimal mechanical issues (a broken rear drive shaft) and a lot of fun had by all.
