Another failure

I went to Malad, Idaho for a family camping trip.  I thought it would be a great idea to make the climb to Elkhorn Peak.  Its always strange to come back to an area after not having visited it for such a long time.  As was the case when I visited Moab last year, the last time I rode this trail was when I was a teenager over 20 years ago.  Yet, the trail did not look that different from the time when I []
