Day two we were going to ride Ridge o Rama but the weather had other plans. We drove to
the Taylor access road – NOTE – Do not go left and ride the one hour detour, unless you
like gratuitous climbing. We headed up and just as we got to Taylor Cabin it started to rain.
The clouds were over the ridge, the rain came, then went. I decided to bail and fix the flat
tire on the truck… everyone else continued on and had a great ride down Lick Creek which
was being cleared that day by some Horse people.
Every lunch included Peanut Butter Sandwiches and Cliff Bars.
Driving up to Taylor Basin
Getting ready to go.
Heading up Taylor, clouds were looming
Flowers were nice!
Hanging out in Taylor Cabin waiting for the rain to pass.
Thinking the rain was passing we checked out the map
Then the rain started again so we hung out some more
Then we decided to go
At about this point I turned back and everyone else continued to Lick Creek.
Even Mr. Griz came by to say hi!
Yes Bryce, you WILL get your feet wet.
Can’t have a Chilcotin ride without some pushing!
We go there
Fortunately you are rewarded with a good descent.
Back at camp for snacks before dinner, refreshements, marshmellows and fires!
