Great trip. Lots of haze but views to the north seemed better. That was fun. Thanks for a great day.

Few More.

#1 Traffic Jam - Real bummer. There was a guy outside our party there that probably sealed the deal for that large group of Jeeps that ended up backing up. We probably should have. Felt bad.
#2 Sign leaving Crystal.
#3 In the Canyon on Schofield Pass trail.
#4 More in the canyon
#5 The rock slide that people had been referring to this year
#6 Just after the bridge heading up the obstacle that is the Devil's Punch Bowl.

Another video. My friend Keith is turning into THE guy to take on trips. Paid for both nights at the hotel, was giddy the whole trip, fun, AND he made videos and put together a Google Earth File of the trip and the interesting waypoints. Just nuts.

As I suspected it was perfect up there. Glad you all got to see it! Thanks again to Dave for taking the reins
