Check-Ins for this Challenge Point

 What a great trail!  It was raining so that made the rocks a bit slippery climbing up some of the steep sections.   The stream crossings thankfully washed off most of the mud while on my way out.

Blackrock was the last of the challenge points for me !

I didn't realize my picture was out of focus until I got home.  It will do.

 OK, so I didn't quite make it all the way there.  This is where I dumped it going up.  Our Vice-Pres SpecialEd was there helping me get it back up and said I could claim it.  I'll take it.  That makes 22 sites!  Made Silver anyway this yesr.

Special Ed @ Black Rock Mine, long day in the saddle but worth the ride up into this area.

 I made it to within 1.1 miles of the mine, but snotty mud and slush/snow stopped the mighty R1200GS.  I now throw myself on the mercy of the group - how was I supposed to know there'd be snow up there the first week in October? I've only lived here a year... 

Even if I don't get IAMC Challenge credit, the looks on the hunter's faces when my bike and I went grinding past them up and down hills was worth the effort!
