It is a rough ride to Daisy Peak. Each year the road is a little harder to pass. We took the ranch 4 wheelers up this year, picking our way over endless rocks and scree. The rough ride pays back in views and clean air. Each successive range lightens in the atmosphere just like the art books say it should. There is also the sharp smells of grass and pines that cannot be matched by anything labeled fresh scent. It is a pilgrimage with effort and reward.
