Tim and I got out and explored a little bit of new ground recently. Found ourselves a little slice or ‘chuck hunting heaven!
We spent the first day covering stuff we’ve been through many times before. Doing the usual this time of year, putting along, glassing, taking short walks, popping a ‘chuck or squirrel or three as opportunity presented.
We camped the first night in a spot about as far into this country as we have ever been before. The next day, we’d decide to push on into stuff we haven’t ever gotten into yet.
So, we got up the next morning and after breaking camp, debated whether to loop back through familiar country, or push on into new stuff. We decided on the new stuff.
Soon, we were climbing out of a dead end canyon on a seldom used, over grown track. Lots of screeching branches on paint getting up out of this canyon.
Once we topped out again, we glassed the distance for likely looking terrain and thought we saw something worth trying to get a closer look at.
So, off we went, navigating two tracks to get to the area that had looked promising from a distance. And eventually, we arrived. The Chuck Cathedral.
Chucks scampering on every rock pile and reef! We found some of the world famous Acapulco Cliff Diving ‘Chucks living here too. It was awesome!
Following a very enjoyable day of incredible scenery and getting into some great new ‘chuck ground, we found a scenic spot to pitch the tent for the second night.
Too much fun!
Until next time…
