Awesome day on the trails with @theksmith @kaspily @Bradywgn71 @gmookher!

 

Massive thanks to @theksmith for planning/leading this rock crawling adventure.

 

Great seeing @Curly and Mrs. Curly at breakfast! That was a nice surprise. 😊

We even had a @Eugene sighting - Cottonwood was an ORP magnet today!

The road out to Smasher.

Ledge, ledges and more ledges! From mild to wild, there's something for everyone.

Plenty of rock gardens to keep you on your toes.

"The Squeeze" was filled with loose boulders.

No room for error on this one - literally 2-3 inches away from fender damage. Note the broken window glass on the ground at the top of the ledge.

A look back at Mingus.

Look closely and you'll spy the Verde Canyon Railroad tracks.

I had such a fun time even without my Jeep ;) Thanks Kristoffer and Ryan for your passenger seats. It was a nice surprise to see Tim, Devon, and Michael at breakfast! Our ORP newbie Gem and his wife Vim kicked butt and I hope to see them at the Holiday Party coming up.

 

What a fun trail! 

 

Here are my photos and videos.

Here the photos and videos I took as a Google Photos album. Select videos and images below. I am still working on the Gopro footage from my front bumper although a few of the stills below were extracted from that footage.

Got the Gopro footage processed and uploaded to YouTube. Enjoy!  The video is 25 minutes long.

Poking @theksmith and @gmookher did either of you have a fluid leak on the trail? Notice the rock just behind me, that appears fresh from the photo's perspective, but it isn't from me, I just double checked my entire underside.

Open vent or possibly damage?

That was my Jeep - it saw the obstacle and peed a little. 😁
