After climbing out of Birch Creek and down into Blue Canyon (Watson area), our first stop is the old homestead ruins where I found a geocache on my Hattie Harrell Ranch ride. Leaves just starting to turn color as fall creeps in. Didn't get to explore around here long before my wife finds a snake. She panics, and I escort her from the ruins back to her ATV. I comfort her for a bit, then we depart.
Heading south towards Hattie Harrell Ranch, I point out to her "The Finger". It's really called this. It's also the river crossing
I completed a few weeks back. You can see the trail out of the water on the other side below the finger.
Don't feel offended, they didn't mention which finger they were referring too!
Hattie Harrell Ranch House. Can see the original house and the addition
Next stop, Watson Cemetery...more to come
