Beautiful day, wonderful group of 5 rigs, no breakage, no stucks no one hurt, a good day on Bill Moore.

The weather cooperated and we didn't get rained on. It was a delightful surprise Perry came out and was our gunner. We had Jessica in her 2013 5th gen BONE stock! 4runner and she was a skilled driver, Patrick in his 1998 UZJ100 and Brandon in his 3rd gen 4Runner.

As Brandon had warned us about Saturday at the Rally, there was a huge washout shortly after the trailhead. And there was room to drive around it.

Nothing like a bone stock IFS rig to get a tire off the dirt.

It was a bright blue sky in old mining country.

Once the A-Trac was activated Jessica drove right up the loose rocks.

Such a scenic trail!

Been seeing that gold-ish looking 4runner at CTS a lot lately. Looks like an interesting rig. Thanks for the report and all the pics. I need to get my Toy running again badly...

Last one. Bugged out early in hopes of beating the traffic and getting a few things done at home. Thanks for a good day on the trail Jeff. Just what I needed:thumb:.

What's the camping situation like up at Bill Moore? I've actually never been up there.

Primitive camping throughout the area but definitely some nice spots for a quick get-a-way

Typical USFS disbursed camping. There are no actual campgrounds, but plenty of places to camp.
