Weather was everything. Snow and rain on the drive up. Blue sky and sunshine to start, then windy, then snow, then back to rain.

The trail was a blast. Very dig out and lots of challenges. Everyoneís armor got used.

Couple of quick pics that I got.

Just add a pic of Bart and everything will be just fine Isaac.
GX470s look and ARE super cool. Great wheeling with you Brian and Austin!!
Thanks to Kevin for initiating this run of an old club favorite trail that has changed significantly in the last ten years. Gnarlier now for sure and more than once today, the phrase "Thanks, Christo!" was said out loud.

Awesome run! Thanks Kevin for putting this together.. Austin and I had a great time! This trail has sure changed since I ran it in 09, much harder. Sliders and skids highly recommended. I will try and get a couple vids up later..

I had so much fun running this trail. And we had a great group. Even with 5 prepared drivers it took us 3/4 of a day. There were so many optional lines thru obstacles to challenge everyone. When your lockers and armor are working perfectly and your on your game it's a wonderful trail.

I came out clean. I think we just about all had to pull cable or get strapped at some point as it was easy to fall off your line and get turtled on rocks. Kevin's rig saw lots of that. He was having a good time even ripped off a fender flare. Most everyone came out with minor damage. As everyone said the trail is rougher with new obstacles presenting themselves. I liked that personally. We should run it again in the spring.

Yes great people and great times!

I didn’t get any damage and I didn’t think you or Brian did either Scott?

Trail is definitely dug out and difficult.

Steve, I apologize but I missed Bart at every turn. Hopefully Brian or Kevin got some.

It was really nice to be able to play and try hard lines without having to worry about keeping the group moving. I had to pull cable a couple times. Really fun to get to use my winch. I’ve barely had a chance.

Thanks to everyone who made it! I had a great time. As mentioned I did take out a rear flair but its fixable. Forgot 4 wheeling 101 lesson and should have got out and looked at my options and chose a line appropriate for wagons. Once I realized my line was not going to work I had to choose backing up which would most likely feed the rock my rear door or continue and feed it my flair....I obviously chose the later. It will be erased first chance I get to work on it. Trail was as Nay reported and very washed out. I liked it as the whole trail had places to play rather that just a few spots. Most of us did all the options a wagon can do along with a few spots that were not wagon friendly but we did them anyway with varied success. Cold rocks, wet rocks, sandy rocks, sun, rain and snow......perfect conditions! I cant wait for a repeat! Sorry I didn't get more stills of Brian, Scott and Steve. I will get a couple good vids I will process and get up soon.
