Rollins Pass

I am a man of few words of late. Pure exhaustion, nothing more.
Good thing I know to trust my internal compass. Coming off the Jenny Creek Trail my GPS's compass and even the sun were telling me I should be taking a left onto Rollins Pass Road. Fighting my electronic gadget and even nature itself I took a right and somehow a quarter mile later and my GPS says west and the sun is behind me. Still can't figure that out. Some sort of trans dimensional warp I reckon.
Later after summiting Rollins Pass I take an old gas line route to the top of a knob just above Jenny's Creek, seeing a piece of singletrack break off to my left I couldn't help myself and found an old ski route that lead to the Guinn Mountain Cabin and trail. I hate that I missed the upper half of Jenny's Creek but Guinn Mountain had its own bit of fun in thousands of little chicken heads mixed in a bunch of goat heads.

I give you Rollin's Pass...a photo essay

still haven't figured out if I want to see a moose or not..

Karlos,

I carry a little green guy in my pack named George. Any time I want a photo I take him out and offer him a cracker to take the shot.

George caused me to crash a car into a ditch when I was around 18. He is a michivious little fellow.

Lots and lots of moose up here. Saw two a couple of weeks ago. In fact, every time I see one they remind me of you - big, hairy, smelly . . . .
