Does anyone have any photos they would be willing to let the Denver Post use for this article, with a credit of course, from one of the trails mentioned below? Or do you know of a meetup or run that's happening in the next few weeks so we can send a photographer to shoot it?

To be large enough to reproduce in the newspaper, the photo needs to be 300 DPI and at least 1MB in size (or printable to a 10x10). If you have any please send them to my work email at swheeler@denverpost.com, and make sure to put your full name for the credit as well as a cutline about where the image is and what's happening. Thank you!

Argentine Pass/Waldorf Road
Engineer Pass/Alpine Loop
Guanella Pass
Boreas Pass
Switzerland Trail
Shrine Pass
Fall River Reservoir/Rainbow Road
Shelf Road
Kingston's
Rampart Road

Give me a cutline please. Tell me where the photo was taken and what's happening in it. I need a full name and I need you to send me a larger resolution file at my email: srwheelr@comcast.net

AAAAIIIIIGGGGGHHHHH!
I have no pix on ANY of those trails!

Here's some fun ones if you decide Old Chinaman's Gulch near Buena Vista is worth honorable mention. They are from the Rock Pile. 5/17/08, Bill Morgan and Red Chili, a 1987 Toyota 4Runner.

Here is Nay having fun, same day. The Double Ledge (or is that Yoder's Bane?), Old Chinaman's Gulch:

'74, but close :D - It is actually a hybrid but VIN says it is a 12/74 rig so I just go with it.

Sheeba, I'll look through my pics of the Ouray area and send some your way if worthy. Are you looking for pics with vehicles, scenic pics, or a combination?

combo would be very picturesque, but send what you have. unfortunately I don't get to pick but i like giving the design folks plenty to choose from.

Wish I had pics of those trails, but sadly, I do not.

Where is that exactly on the trail? I can't place it from that angle.

Looks like that first optional rock garden to me - but he's got his driver's side tires on top of the rock that smaller trucks stay to the right of.

I took that photo on the Rising Sun "40's Only Run" on Kingston Peak. Here's a link to the original high res, it's a little grainy:

I had misplaced it as being on the Double Ledge, but you are correct sir.

Yeah but who is this Shawn Cardinal guy? LOL

Shawn (or his friend) took some awesome pics that day as well so maybe he has a few he can email Sheeba....

IMO pictures showing the scenery first, vehicles second, might do more for us than cool wheeling pics. Obviously we don't get to decide but I'm betting the average reader will be more impressed by spectacular scenery (like some of Martin's recent pics from his adventures) than they will be by what we would typically like to see in Toyota Trails or similar. The picture of Nay above is awesome but I'm betting the average reader will just "see" some dude driving over a rock and think he is off the trail, damaging the land vs. cresting an incredible obstacle/line on a difficult trail.

Doh! Sorry dude... :o But it's true, I haven't wheeled with either you or Shawn in your 40's since 2007! :eek:

man oh man...I know what you're sayin' I haven't been wheelin' much lately. I HAVE however been drinking plenty of :beer: with Perry. My two jobs (work and Dad) have been keeping me quite busy. I'll be back in the game in no time. :D

If I haven't missed the deadline, I'll try to scare up some pics from that day on Kingston.

Found some relics!! Here's my first cruiser. "Da'Crushaah", said like the ring announcer in that Bugs Bunny cartoon, had reeeeaaaallly bad frame rust from 20 years in Mass. the heart and soul (motor) of that 60 lives in my current 60. :D

Kingston Peak pics from the not-so-distant past. most of these trucks have changed hands or gone through a couple mods.
