It was a bit wet... but plenty of mud and water to play in.

As expected Jones Pass was very easy, but blocked just short of the summit with a snow field. Another few more days and it might be clear. However...

At the bottom of the pass is a road to the right that provided a more challenging trail. It leads to a dead end against a massive rock slide :eek: , but was fun just the same.

Having not gotten either wet enough or enough mud on the rigs, DUOR headed over Kingston. NICE mud holes on the north side of the pass.

Instead of heading into Apex, headed north and came out at Tolland.

Good time was had by all...

:D

Also, we helped Marcus (new transplant from north county San Diego) break in his new Rubicon... I think it was about one week old..

Pizza in Idaho Springs at Beau Jos - :beer:

We were there on Sunday... Could not see 75 feet through the clouds..
Rain, Rain.
Mud, Mud.
Fun, Fun.
I got the yj put back together after a big expensive break, and used Kingston as a test to see if the jeep is working ok...it is.

It was a good time getting wet and muddy. Lots of fun being able to go all the way over Kingston Peak this time too. Here are some of my pics...

Well I got bored today (I had the day off of work) and insted of sitting in the air conditioning apartment I jumped in the Jeep and went up Jones pass for another try. Not as wet this time.

I made it a little farther but I still got stuck before getting to the top.

Yep that looks like the one. I didn't think it was that deep and I was not paying attention when Bob went through it, but I has some water come up over the hood and I made a pretty good wave going through. Looks like fun.

:D
