Despite having a head cold and fever, we managed to pull off a great loop in the Fall Creek basin southwest of Swan Valley in the Caribou Mountains. It has been a wet and rainy month of May and the trails were a mix of tacky dirt and slick mud. Out of the 25 miles, i'd guess only about 3 or 4 miles were just too muddy to enjoy. Not a bad ratio for trail riding in my opinion. The descent down Horse Creek was exciting and fast!
