Default Medano Pass 11-3-12

Haven't post a trip report in a while so here are some photos from a trip at the beginning of the month that I took over Medano Pass to the Great Sand Dunes and up Blanca Peak.

Great Sand Dune National Park

A man and his dog

Blanca Peak.

I wussed out on this one and rode along up to jaws.

Needless, to say we didn't try it since it was getting dark and no other vehicles where around to assist.

After this we parted ways both us headed back into the park to take the pass back over. I lagged behind and tried a few night shots.

Apparently, somewhere along the line I managed to get water sucked up into my front diff causing two seals to go out which lead to this.

Great photos - thanks for posting. I wondered how dry that area was this year.

I STILL haven't made it over that pass. Maybe someday.

Nice pictures thanks for sharing.

Bummer about the leak....

Nice pics. I'm hoping to hit Medano on the way to or from the FJ Summit next summer.
