Colorado Second Year In A Row!

The crew decided our first camp would be  at Gunnison KOA,  Some of us got the pleasure of wheeling all the trails listed, while Lance & Mandi missed a couple due to a mishap on the way, but they got fixed and joined us for the rest of the trails. We all got to wheel Chinaman’s Gulch, and due to a weather set back, a few of us got to wheel Holy Cross Sunday after the weather had passed, while Mandi, Karen, Rick & Linda needed to head back on Saturday.

2022 Colorado Trip So Far…

Day 1: Italian Creek/Reno Divide
Day 2: Pearl Pass/Taylor Pass

On tap: Chinaman Gulch & Holy Cross

Day 3: Chinaman Gulch
Wow, what a trial!! Steep ledges, large boulders, tight twisting sections through the trees with lots of rocks and minor obstacles to keep you focused the entire time. We attempted this trail on a wet and rainy day which made the rocks extra slippery but kept the dust down. I would recommend this trail to all experienced drivers with modified rigs. Definitely not for the faint of hart or inexperienced. Not sure how this isn’t a jeep badge of honor trail. We definitely had a blast!

Day 4: Down Day
Around Buena Vista while the torrential rains past.

Day 5: Holy Cross

This trail had to wait an extra day due to weather, and some of our crew had to head home as we extended an extra day to accomplish it, before running home ourselves (plus any other random pics I could steal from peoples FB). We ended up dubbing this the Oreilly’s Parts Tour, as we had many stops and break downs on our trip. We also had a few videos we’ll try and add later. For now you’ll have to settle for this:
