Twin Pillars Trail (9/22/18)
Amazing area and very few people. Bingham Spring was a very windy place to camp, a local I talked to said it's always very windy. There were plenty of water sources down in the valley even in late September, but then nothing until the approach down to Bingham Spring. Last time we tried to do this trail we couldn't make it more then half a mile because the creek was so high the dogs wouldn't cross it.

The last 2/3 of the ride I took too many chances of injury to my horse. The "waypoint" that says "terrible creek crossing" is where I should of turned back because from there on it was stressful but my stubbornness over rode my good sense and I continued on. Here is the youtube video if you want to experience my trailride. https://www.youtube.com/user/chaneyrus
