Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
The Rubicon is cool.
Looks like a bumpy ride!
Looks like "slick-rock" country. I was horse-packing quite a number of years ago up the Hells Mountain Trail, going into the Immigrant Wilderness area in country like that. Found a spot where a number of 4WD vehicles had joined the trail, tearing stuff up. As I was discussing their heritage, and sexual persuasions with my horse, I noticed a pretty good sized rock in the trail jutting up a couple of feet into a very nice point. Huge puddle of oil draped the rock. Ecologically unsound to be sure, but that chuckle lasted me a couple of miles.
