It is a bit late to mention, but winter park got 21" in the last 24 hrs.

I -70 was wiped out today so I dropped down to Salida and crossed over Monarch Pass. Made a visit on the way:



I’m in Grand Junction. Going to run Top of the World if anyone is in the area and wants to join us.

It was great to see Jpet and spend a half hour talking Jeeps.  I'm glad that he's been able to find his way around some of the worst of the weather here in Colorado.  I'd like to be able to join you guys on at least a few of the trails you'll ride, but I still have work to do on both the Blue Mule and Sam's Jeep.  So I'll tag along vicariously on these pages.  Good luck to all of you!!

Jpet, you scare me when you do crazy stuff like hanging over a rock like that.  I know you like to live life on the edge, but that's just nuts.  But I've got to hand it to you, it is a spectacular photo.  Oh wait, that's really a cardboard cut out isn't it, because you're taking the photo.

After Top of the World, we decided to do Hell’s Revenge:

BDouglas in the Escalator. It’s full of water which makes it even more challenging



.... and BAM BAM discovers a way to make the “car wash” more fun:



Today we are doing Rusty Nail. Anyone who wants come needs to meet us at Canyonlands campground site 109 at 8:00

The end of Rusty Nail is a VERY off-camber drive on a ledge:











This canyon drive was beautiful!

I tried a little more adventurousness line coming down the Devi)s Crack obstacle on The Moab time trail.







If you drive this obstacle make sure you get both front  tires coming off the drop at the same time instead of dropping the left tire down first unless, of course,  this type of adventure is what you’re looking for.

Thanks to Jeff and Ryan for the see saw tip job getting me back on all four wheels.
