So today while hunting, I took another Jeep detour, an hour later heading down the mountain, I run into 2 Border Patrol Agents on 4 wheelers. The lead Agent pulls off the trail and motions me to stop, he has this surprised look on his face. So he asks me if I have seen anyone else in the canyon or up on the ridge, I said no, he said, "I have to tell you I am a little surprised to see a vehicle here, this is a 4 wheeler trail". He then informed me that I was going to have a tough go of it ahead, as the trail drops into a wash for a 100 yards or so, and it is very narrow. I told him, no problem, I'll just turn around, he gives me this look and says, "Where"? He watched as I negotiated a 6 point turn on the narrow trail and hillside. Thankfully it is all BLM land, and the trails aren't marked for what kind of vehicle may travel them, I would never knowingly travel a trail designated for quads.
