Did a little day trip to the 505 today. The Durango Crew was missing a few of its usual suspects but still had a good showing.

In attendance today:

Corbet - FZJ80 green
Steve - FJ40
Sara - FJZ80 white
Patrick - FZJ80 white
Clayton - 1st gen Tacoma

Location Choke Cherry Canyon. GPS: N 36*46.281' W 108*581'

Here's a few teaser pics for the night.

Steve was spotting me up this obstacle and wished he had the camera up top. I got my passenger front pretty well aired out. Same obstacle as directly above.

Sara looks like a man! No, wait....

I can't believe Steve has one of the nicest 40's yet there he is helming Sara's 80....:D

Bridge looks thoroughly happy about wheeling....
He's such a daredevil already, it has to be right up his alley.

I got to double dip on a couple of obstacles during the day ;), Sara was at the helm most of the day and wheeling with a smile.
Thanks for posting up the photo's Corbet we had a great time.

Agreed. When I went down there a few years back it was a blast. Trail finding was a challenge at times, but there were tons of difficult obstacles (with little room to breathe in between) and lots of room to camp and hang out.

Great pics. Looks like some fun territory to explore.

Trails are short and packed with obstacels. Some have bypasses while others require commitment. We have hiked a few of the trails to scout and have had to determine they were buggy based only. So far the majority of what we have found in the area can be managed with the acceptance of taking the bypass at times.

Would like to run over to do this with you guys Saturday, June 18th while down in Durango area for Father's Day if possible.

Hope to see you in Moab to talk about it and the Ouray Overnight too!

From what Corbet said I think Clayton walked right up that ledge (2nd photo) after he got back in his truck from snapping the photo?
Thanks for posting photo's Clayton.

That's right Steve. Got to that point and had to wait for Corbet to come give me a spot.

Ahhh,

It's great to be able to see the exact moment that a driver of an 80 thinks to themselves, " Oh, I need sliders..."

It was obstacle before this, that Mr Ledge found the virgin sheet metal.
Sliders are very close, about one week out I think?
