Default Switzerland Trail Conditions Redux

I talked Marco into an afterwork trip up to Switzerland Trail last night. It is open and passable in a stock 4x4. Muddy in parts but really not that bad.

We also drove a trail that went out to Peak to Peak Highway (Davidson Gulch?). That was also free of snow but extremely muddy. I managed to get through (slowly) in my stock Tacoma, but only because Marco was telling me where to go. Marco, on the other hand, was just blasting through stuff like a kid let loose in the woods after a long winter. I saw his entire right rear tire disappear into a mud hole at one point and even lost sight of both rear tail-lights briefly.

We also passed a Jeep Cherokee that was abandoned in a mud bog. Right next to it was a gigantic Ford (F-250?) that was also stuck and abandoned. Love that my stock Tacoma rolled right past those 2 vehicles.

I'd have taken pictures, but it was dark.
