Typically, our boys go four-wheel driving, leaving the girls to chill at home.
They’ve done all of the iconic High Country Trails. Crooked River, Blue Rag, Deep Creek 1 & 2, Haunted Stream to name a few.
Their equipment is minimal. A swag, the #builtnotbought Triton, a bit of food and a whole lot of adrenaline.
When the opportunity to explore McKillop’s Bridge and to do Deddick Trail came up, it was embraced by everyone in our family.
A wonderful day trip through amazing country. Mandatory stop along the way: Bruthen Bakery for our afternoon tea (Pecan Pie).
The Staircase (featured in the video below) was freaky. It was steep, had a soft shoal texture and was really churned up.
Before we ascended, we passed a Jeep entourage coming down the Staircase. They stopped to let us pass and offered a piece of wisdom, “Good luck!’
“Why do we need luck?” we wondered.
When you experience Deddick for yourself, you’ll understand why.
Navigating that terrain showed me the importance of working together on the tracks. Helping a brother out, keeping your cool and holding firmly onto the Jesus bar!
Next track? We’re going back to Blue Rag, so that I can experience it too.
