Satellite view of the Fifty, the green pin is Hole in the Rock Road, the red pin is Rock Creek and the blue lines are the trails we use.
AirtimeOne time in April of 2012, my son, Mitchell Westhoff and I, Steve Westhoff, were riding across the bench between Mudholes and Blackburn Canyon and got ourselves in a situation where we had to do some "airtime", to get the job done. Let me explain.
Another view of the rock the bull was standing on.
When we used to go with Quinn Griffin, whose family owned the grazing permits on the Fifty for 37 years, as we would start to ride out each morning, he used to say, "I wonder what adventure awaits us today?" It seems the Fifty is always good for adventure and that day Mitch and I sure had more adventure than we expected.
