Well I will get this started by saying Great run today. We had 5 trucks today 3 4runners 1 Taco and Son in Law Ray in his Rubicon. I am having some issues with my Pic's so I won't have any up tonight. At least we have trip report. This was the first time for all of us on this trail, so none of us knew what to expect. Very fun trail long and rocky with several fun challenging spots. By the way Douglas you are not a Noob anymore. You Rocked that runner today Great job. :bowdown::bowdown: Hopefully I get pic's up soon.

It was a good run. I had a great time. It was definitely a challenging trail. The whole thing is very rough and relentless. But it was a beautiful day and the leaves were fantastic.

I was wondering where y'all were headed when I passed you Hwy 93. Looks like an awesome time.

Here are some photos from my vantage point. More on my website. (http://www.douglasvanbossuyt.com/2015/09/27/middle-st-vrain-and-coney-flats/)

Did anyone get any videos/photos of me doing the big water crossing?

Too bad we missed you up there Paul, Nice shots of the Moose. What a beautiful area up there and it was a fantastic day.

There were a couple guys there that saw you and said you were about 30 minutes ahead of me going up the hill. But there were two groups of Jeeps ahead of me. We all got bunched up. Took an hour to drive that 0.5 mile. I've done it in 10 minutes before. I did try channel 4 a couple times but you guys were probably out of your rigs.

I wear that trail out. Probably done it 30+ times. Love the hiking access back there.

Yeah, I kind of heard you on 4. I was answering, but I guess we were too far apart. Sorry.

The guys who told me you were 30 minutes ahead are in your pictures. I was an 88 4Runner and the Jeep Wagon.

No worries. Judging by that evidence, you were quite a bit more than 30 minutes ahead of me because I saw them 15 minutes down the hiking trail.

That trail looks really fun. Hopefully I can get my tires to quit hitting the fenders and firewall in time to see it before winter, and before I move so far away lol. Great pics guys! Douglas your truck looks better and better every time I see it, I love watching the progression.
