    High Elevation ride to the Upper lakes in Adams County Idaho

    Decided to ride up to the upper lakes around were I live before the snow sets in.

    First stop Fuel. This guy next to me must have had fun driving up the windy roads
    to get here

    Now we head up to 7,640 ft to the fire lookout.

    Down at the bottom is McCall. The place I call home.
    We live at 5,050 ft.

    Now we are off to Brundage Reservoir

    This is Chip. He is retired Forest Service. He keeps me from
    getting lost up here.

    Next stop: Fisher Creek Saddle

    Right below us in the ravine are 2,000 sheep.
    Any closer and the Dogs will be all over us.

    Granite Lake
    They are lowering the level of the lake in
    preparation for winter. I am parked in what was the lake a couple weeks ago

    There were 2 other lakes we didn't get to because we were already at 65 miles and fuel was becoming an issue. We also were getting hungry.
    We will hit those soon.

    Does Chip have some Pack Goats? Couple years ago we met a retired forest service guy who packed in with some kind of special goats into Coffee Cup Lake (west of where you rode) while riding our mules up past Grassy Lakes. I think he was fishing with his grandson. Goats and mules can be a bit weary of each other, to say the least. All beautiful up there. We've not ridden to Granite Lake as of yet.

    No goats for Chip. His other passion is Kayaking. As far as fishing goes, he didn't even get a license this year. He's one of the most outdoorsy person I know and always at the water but fishing isn't at the top of his list. I find the older
    i get the more I like fishing.

    Looking to the east is Grassy Lakes. Though I've only ridden our mules to the lakes, I think it's fairly easy to ride to them via the single track motorcycle allowable trail. You can also ride up where the photo is taken though the trail up to this point is pretty rocky. Steep wise not that bad, just lots of rock. The older I get the less likely I am to ride this trail on the TW. Mule anytime, TW sketchy for me but very beautiful up here as you are well aware of!
