Paiute Trails 27, 29, 34

Cliff and Sandy came back to the park for another week (I like to think they missed me) so Cliff and I took off to explore some trails neither of us had ridden. The weather went from cool and cloudy to cold and hail to hot and sunny. In addition to lots of deer, we spotted a mountain goat with two kids on the side of a rock mountain that appeared to be nearly vertical. Unfortunately, they were too far away to get a good photo. A track of the ride including distance, time, speed and elevation has been uploaded to EveryTrail.
