Pass through a stile and follow an old jeep track through wide-open country. A fainter set of tracks diverge left—it meets back up with the main track after 0.25 mile. Soak up the sun and breezes and admire the farmed plains to the south, Moses Lake to the east, and lofty Mission Ridge to the west. In spring the way is muddy, with fresh imprints from passing critters. By later in the summer the ground is hard and cracked.
