tree took a few hits. Right where the front driver side tire is in the picture above
is a root that was under the mud. As a tire would drive over the root the vehicle
would be pushed to the driver side and cause numerous contacts with the tree. Though
most carefully drove through this narrow passage, a few really slammed the tree.
at the tree that took a few hits this was the view up the hill to higher ground.
From the point of the tree, if you were to make it up the hill here you had to give it the
gas in at least 2nd in low range (manuals). Otherwise you would not have enough momentum
to get up the hill. Careful though. The trees up the hill were tight and the
hill was slick. Some contact was made in a few vehicles including a CJ that backed
down right into a tree in his blind spot.
4 wheeling family! This is Karen, Cody, Cory and Kevin. The whole family
packed into their two Jeep Cherokees and hit the trail for the day. Karen said that
Cory, pictured to the left, slept through some of the roughest parts of the trails.
Wouldn't it be great if all kids would sleep that sound?
Here were a couple of lead vehicles in
one of the other two groups. Our paths briefly crossed as we were on our way out.
