After a delicious homemade Mamma Bingham parmesean chicken dinner, we got to bed early so we could do a big mountain bike ride on the newly built trail system in Eagle.
Before we set out, we routed a fun 3-4hr ride and couldn't believe how amazing the trail was for the first 2hrs. Unfortunately, we took a wrong turn at the top of one of the big climbs and got incredibly lost after that!
We searched and searched for the trail but only ended up finding small deer trails that led to nothing but wooded mountain sides. After about an hour of looking, Bryce said that our best bet was to just bushwhack the entire way down the mountain until we met up with a dirt road that he knew was there. I'm usually up for any kind of adventure but when I'm lost in the middle of the forest with absolutely nothing but trees and bushes in sight in the peak of bear season, I am NOT a happy camper.
We eventually made it out (after looking like we took a weed whacker to our arms and legs) and asked a fellow rider where we had gone wrong...apparently we took a left turn about 1/2 mile too early!!! There's nothing worse than climbing for 2hrs then not being able to ride the ''epic'' singletrack back down but at least we made it back safely! Next time we'll know where to go :)
