Introducing the High Plateaus
Team South mount their ATVs and ride out of Elk Horn Campground over to another Forest Service camp called Goosbery, then detour from the route of the Public Lands Journey and drive into the town of Richfield for the night.
At Elk Horn the Team camped next to a group of colorful folks, participants in the Mountain Men Marathon, a sideshow of the Rocky Mountain ATV Jamboree. Participants in the marathon make a 300 mile-long loop on their ATVs, camping out in different places each night. It is all a lot of fun and a more "roughing it" addition to the Jamboree.
