Default What's wrong with this picture?


I met up with Jeff (vanilla gorilla) today and headed up to the Sierras. My brother was the odd man out with his Jeep Liberty. It definitely was a great time... a lot of stunning scenery. The trails were mild but also very narrow in spots, with shear drop offs on the downhill side. It was like an episode of IRT Deadliest Roads. There were a couple of times where we had to negotiate some pretty sketchy passes with people heading in the opposite direction. Unfortunately, the tight quarters resulted in a damaged bed corner and taillight for Jeff. I feel really bad for him... not how he wanted to break in a brand new truck. Here are a few pics of the better moments.

You bet. Good times. There's another spot I want to try. It's out off of 49. The trail is only rated a 2 so it should be no problem. Although... I think I said the same about today's run.

Sounds like its time to cash in on that 10% off recon taillights! ;)

Looks like fun!

Nice pics Iceman!
I know what you mean about sheer drop offs - they can certainly make for some tense moments but the rush afterwards is addictive.

Phsssssh...3 tons...lol! We both made it over, separately that is. It was sketchy though, the suspension bridge was moving and creaking as we inched across.
