Looks like it was a ton of fun. I am bummed that I missed the run that all the 40s came out to play. I should just quit my job and wheel!

GREAT pics everyone! Just got back from 10+ days up in Grand Lake so as soon as I have a chance I'll dig through the photos we took and get some posted up as well.

A big thanks to the club and to Matt for leading. We had a great time and I got to learn even more about 4-wheeling.

The most memorable part of the trip for me was hearing the wife say "You're not taking the bypass!" on the last major obstacle that gave everyone a nice DS wheel stand (pics in post #28 IIRC) while making you feel like you were going to slide into the tree. After following Nemo around most of the day and watching what his rig did I started to head for the bypass. The wife would have nothing of it

Wish I would have had the camera at the ready to catch Nemo doing his wheel stand!

Not far from Denver. The trailhead is about 6 miles north of US285 off of Park county road 43, Arapaho Nat'l Forest. Basically between Pine Junction and Bailey.

Finally getting my pics up

Driver's meeting


View from top of stump hill (I believe)


Hants


Hants again


Hulk, started a trend by going up backwards - action sequence






Impromptu flex shots - Didn't even realize until someone mentioned it and I got out to look...Note the LX is sitting uphill, but level side to side




LX action sequence shots










Taco coming up


FJ40 coming up


Another nice view


Finally, shots of Nemo going through some of the "tippy" sections...I'm not particularly fond of the tippy stuff
