Iron Range OHV Park

Well we headed up to the Iron Range OHV Park this past weekend. Here's some pics to prove it. David should have some more to add. I also have some dash cam videos, but it might be a day or 2 for those.

The place was pretty sweet, all sorts of terrain, from rock crawls to tight trails on the side of a cliff. Some of my pics are of the mud on the truck, some places had red mud, some had a brown mud and some places has a tan mud. It made a pretty mud kaleidoscope on the side of the truck

My pictures are in reverse order because thats how photobucket likes to upload them, so you may want to start at the bottom.

Its nuts how many different types of terrain are up there. I'm sure we could find a place to jump the DWB LT.

For a stock truck there was a lot that was pushing the limits. The pictures dont really do justice. Most of the trails were fairly easy but still fun.

This is the easy stuff. Shows the feel of the place. Nothing really exciting.

Notice the alcohol in the left hand, and the large flame producing device attached to a propane tank in my right hand. haha

We ended up talking to the guy and it turns out he lives less then 10 miles from me (we were 180 miles from home). We sat around and drank with the guy for a couple hours. It was alot of fun.
