A nice pic

Pretty cool. Also...jealous of the terrain some of you guys have to play on.

So the question is...was that rain heading toward you or away from you?

Looking good! I think that Trooper just wants to live out west. Sure enjoyed looking at it at Moab this year.

Well, we had to drive from Minnesota to get there, but we are closer than you for sure.

So the question is...was that rain heading toward you or away from you?

Mountain weather is weird. You can't see it in the picture but off to the right it was raining all day, but the rain was evaporating when it reached the basin you see in the pic. In this picture of our campsite on the mountaintop you can see the rain in the distance. Later in the evening the rain did reach us.
Image

And the next day, we got hailed on by a thunderstorm. Here it is moving in (we are at about 9000 feet, lots of lightning, pretty exciting)
Image

Then the hail started, not large fortunately, but it built up quickly on my hood

I had so much fun in the Trooper this trip I decided not to sell it, for a while anyway. I don't want to beat up the FJC yet as it is still in pristine condition, and the Trooper just works very well. It is worth more to me than the $$ I could get for it.

I see Dave's Trooper was there also. I was wondering.

Yep, Dave joined our Midwest Overland Society group for the trip, and provided a lot of valuable local knowledge as he lives in northern Wyoming.

Yes, someday you should take a trip through the American West. Much different from the jungle mountains of Costa Rica!

Glad you decided to keep it for the time being.

I know this statement all too well...

Thanks guys. A few more pics from the trip:

See that squiggly line going up the opposite canyon wall in the lower right of the pic? That is the Morrison trail. We did it the day after this pic was taken. 23 very tight switchbacks. I had to 3 point all of them but one or two.

I wish I had gotten some pics of the switchbacks, they are TIGHT. The hundy LC you see ahead of me sustained some body damage on one of them, it is just a bit longer than the Trooper or JK.
