I got in two sweep rides down Golden Eagle this weekend. I have to get them in while I can because after next weekend we will be closed. The forest will be completely shut down, including the crest highway, due to extreme dryness. We need about a month of monsoon rains to get back to close to normal.
As usual, the sweep rides were peaceful and uneventful. On the Sunday ride I came upon three deer that were standing in the trail. They didn't seem too concerned by my presence and appeared annoyed that I was making them move off of the trail.
