Kyle drove us out to a hike about 20 minutes from town on the other side of the river. The old trail we took was once the road to get the train in Engle where supplies would be delivered on a regular schedule. It's not a easy place to reach. I'm sure I our non 4x4 truck would not have made it due to size and lack of driving skill on my part.
Kyle's flip-flop broke and we managed to get him back to the truck using some yucca fibers as strapping. His shoe fell apart within 100' of the truck.
