Worked our way up to Hardscrabble Mesa. Pretty decent views on the way in.

Re: THURS 8-15-19 Payson area route inspections

Didn’t take any pictures of the first half of the day, but after the others decided to call it a day, Ben and I went to finish a couple more routes in the area. The first route turned out to be a pretty fun little drive! 153CB9AB-F85E-4E2B-9CA8-599E54AF9E92.jpeg 03D9FD1C-3670-4A6E-9ED5-180490E7727F....
