The Cleghorn Trail: We got lost!

Shane got off work early today since it rained and we wanted to take advantage of the time! We invited our friends and packed up our off-road vehicles! My friend Lesley Hobgood joined Shane and I in our car then our friends Taylor & Danielle Ryan came in their own off-road vehicle. We headed to a trail called Cleghorn trail!

The beginning of the trail was a piece of cake. Once we got like 6 miles in the terrain changed and I was a nervous wreck haha!

In my opinion the number one rule when dealing with off-roading is NEVER go alone. There are so many things that can go wrong! Tires can pop, you can get stuck, you could get lost then run out of fuel, etc etc! We are so thankful for Taylor & Danielle & they are just the cutest! Everytime I was freaking out Danielle would throw her hand up in the air and say "Just go for it" haha!

At one point the trail got so scary that I grabbed Emy and walked down the hill instead of riding in the truck!

Emy does so good out on the trail. The roads are bumpy so she was very thankful to have Lesley in the back seat; Lesley made sure Emy didn't fall over.

We ended up hitting a dead end and I freaked out. The sun was going down and I had no idea when we made a wrong turn. Taylor & Shane skipped the freakout and just turned around and headed back to find the way home (good thing I wasn't driving). We had to go back through the scariest part, I literally closed my eyes the entire time haha. 

We found our way and I swear I praised God when we hit pavement. Thanks for reading through this! I hope you have a great weekend!!!
