As I get closer to Butcher Knife Canyon, I note some piles of mine tailings on the hillside in the distance

Some of the bumpy road is ridable, but I walk the bike because something is rubbing again in the area of the rear rack
I tighten a bolt that has loosened, but it doesn't stop the rubbing. I pass a campsite in this open area, but continue dragging the bike onward in the hope of a more interesting campsite further up the canyon.
