So, I headed on down the dirt road. And, for a good ten or more miles it was just a nice winding dirt road going up into the mountains. Few small little roads would occasionally take off to either side, but it was easy enough to see what was the main road. Lots of good camping spots. And, not too surprising, saw no people. The road narrowed some after a while, but stayed good enough to be usable by anything short of a Ferrari.
Then the road topped a little rise and I could see down into a valley. A very nice pretty valley. Well, okay. It did have a few cows here and there (mostly on the road as there were no fences). But still, very nice and peaceful. Again. No people. And, no fences. Probably a pretty popular place in the hunting season, but that was still, uh, hmmm, actually, hunting season was coming up fast. At least bow hunting. Kinda surprised I didn't see some bow hunters out doing some scouting.
