Curiosity draws Ann and I out for a drive in the truck to find the Deep Creek crags. We’re just scouting without climbing gear. The 5 miles of steep dirt roads nearly thwart us, but after recovering from one wrong turn we find it. It’s a remote place that’s pretty bushy and overgrown to get around, but raptors screech overhead and we see no sign of other people, giving it a wild and remote feel. We scope out a few climbs and have a picnic before strapping in for the bumpy drive down.
