2nd Annual Run the Gulches
Another great Run the Gulches this past weekend. 11 trucks total at the rendezvous spot bright and early...... And chilly too! Temperature was 5 degrees at just before 9am.

After the normal parking lot chit-chat and burrito feast, we were all rolling towards FS360 and then on to Hackett Gulch. Trail conditions were great with some snow left on the trail and good traction from the loose gravel under the soft layer of white stuff. There we some other tracks in the snow up to Hackett Rock and then we were making first tracks the rest of the way. We didn't return to the pavement until 3PM but were still set on running Illinois Gulch and Moab Hill before dark. Only 8 of us made the trip 3.5 miles down CO67 to the start of Illinois. Just a short time later we were playing on Moab Hill. It was wet and partially snow covered so the going was challenging. Everyone seemed to be having a great time and it was after dark by the time we called it a day. We all descended the trail in the dark and aired up at Rainbow Falls Rd. this was a full day on the trail with great people. Thanks to all who came out and especially Travis for gunning, Steve for assisting, and Josh for relaying from HAM to CB. It was a great group of mixed experience and everyone was able to find something challenging. I'm working on a video, but I'm sure others have some great pictures to share as well. Maybe the 3rd Annual will be a late spring mud run...... We'll see ;)
