That last photo on Georgia Pass should just be titled "We Come in Peace"

First time out with the group and it was a great time! Thanks to Steve for leading and Justin for tail gunning and for spotting me over the one "big rock." With the exception of a little love tap on the underside of the rear bumper coming off that obstacle, the 4Runner did great. A-Trac is really impressive.

The views were amazing, the descents got the adrenaline pumping, and it was a fantastic way to spend an early fall day in the Rockies!

There was a thread on the Colorado 4x4 Recovery FB page about it. Someone rolled it. Had less than 500 miles on the odometer. Everyone was fine/didn't get hurt. The next day (or a few days later?), people came out to pull it back on the road. A Rising Sun member helped with the recovery even. Then some other guys came and drove it like they stole it to the other side of the pass where they had a trailer to put it on and take it out.

That Wrangler was singing its death song when it drove past us.
