Continuing along a windy trail full of off-camber obstacles we came to something called "Vigra", named after it's vertical nature and sporting a pipe embedded in the ground on the right side of the approach.  Vigra can only be described as a short but steep log flume ride.  Once you commit to going over, there's no turning back.  You had to approach the drop off just right due to the large pipe embedded in the ground.  The last thing you want is to catch that pipe with a rear, right wheel on the way down.

Further down the trail was a section of skid plate scraping dirt and gravel mounds with a departing mound called "Kitchen Table" which then lead out to a sort of staging area that had a pretty spectacular sedimentary backdrop.

As we re-entered the trail coming away from the clearing Some of the off-camber sections were pretty slick.  We then walked ahead up to a section of trail that was another of those bowl shaped challenges to watch everyone take a shot at it.   Tom in his Red Cherokee had gotten high centered and needed a good push backwards off the opposing wall.  With another shot at it, he powered over it.  Everyone then proceeded the tackle "Glenn's Trail" named after the guy who said, "Hey, how about a trail through there?"

Most of the day, it was pouring rain.  Yeah, we were muddy.  The camera wasn't too happy.  It was tough keeping it dry.  But having learned from a few weeks ago, I wisely brought an umbrella which I used occasionally during the picture shooting.  For the most part though I was soaked like everyone else.

And how did a long wheelbased truck do on Glenn's Trail?
