Last couple of wheeling trips *LOTS OF PHOTOS NOT 56K FRIENDLY*

Over the last month I've been hitting quite a bit of trails here in Central City, Boulder and George Town. Haven't really had a chance to post the photos as I've been busy so here you go.

5-22-2011

One of my friends I had taking photos of the day is now fired from taking photos lol. 12 hours of wheeling and he only took 20 pictures.

I tried to wheel T-33A Plane crash in Boulder but it was snowed in and closed to I wheeled Ironclads not knowing it had a lvl 4 low end and a lvl 5 high end rating on the trail and it was raining all day before that so everything was muddy and very slippery. Crushed my drivers and passenger rocker panels, broke a clearance light, muffler is caved in because on the way down I took a different path and there was a 2 ft wall and didn't want to back up 1/4 mile up a 55 degree angle hill so I drove down it. Fun day but now my truck is full of scratches everywhere. There were a few more trails I did that day in Central City but I forgot their names. Wanted to do more but most of the trails had 3 feet of snow all the way down the path.

IronClads

Me and one of my buddies decided at 3pm to do a little late evening wheeling and shoot his gun so we took the 2 hour drive though rush hour to go to George town to wheel Argentine Pass and visit the old Waldorf Mine.

Argentine Pass

No real damage to the truck but I did pull off the side of the road to grab some pics and what I thought was just a thin layer of snow on top of the ground turned out to be 10 inches of snow somehow sitting 1 foot above a creek running under it. So needless to say my front right tire went 4 feet into a creek.









MAJOR FLEX, and BTW that's a 31" tire completely submerged in snow and water.






And to the mine Pictures






Flex shots at the mine just cause





Cool Fountain we saw in George Town as we were heading back to the highway
