Default Loch Lomond - 7/12/09

I'll let the pics speak for the trip. The '79 did great!

Your pop's needing some serious sun block there? Or does he weld without a helmet too?


Seriously... love that area. That is the real reason I got into 4x4ing. Easy to forget that.

Where is that section? Last time I was up there (about 5 yrs ago) it was just a dirt road with a few bumps.
Gate was locked on main road. We hiked from there. About 1 mile. On the way back down we saw another road coming in above the gate. #7014A I think. We then found that spur below the gate and took it all the way to the Lake. Great Day and great company!!!!!

Very nice. Looks like Mr. Davidson and Mr. Davidson had a very nice day. Did you catch any fish? Does the stream feeding the lake flow through a meadow anywhere close to the lake?

Father-son trips rock! Like father like son eh? Or is it the other way around?

Very nice to see the '79 going strong after all the work you guys put into it! Is that a flat tire or just a lot of weight on it?

BTW my favorite flowers are alpine wildflowers - I don't know the names of any of them, but still they are my favs...
