    Nick’s usual username is lord helmet. He’s active on TacomaWorld and here now that he has his 4R. When he posted pics of his rig under that username I was a little confused and had to make sure he wasn’t some schlep using his photos

    Long story on the ICON wheels losing the center caps after only a couple of weeks 2+ months was long enough a wait so 4WP swapped out these Pro-Comps for me and saved me some $$

    Mojave National Preserve near Kelso and Cornfield Spring. We camped in this streambed (not a good idea if it rains). The 2nd photo is looking back down at the same spot from along the trail we walked because our friends Subaru was not going to go any further than here. Kelso is off in the distance near the bottom of the valley.

    Hi Nordwulf,
    Great photos of a region I haven't been to. I hope to go visit friends in upper Michigan, Mackinaw and Lake Superior next summer.
    Frank, Where is the snow? Were these taken last spring or summer?

    They were taken in 2017 and both in summer. Nice areas to explore, I especially liked the trip to James Bay.

    How about some snow vortex? :)

    Not very scenic but showing a bit of snow in the Pigeon River State Forest in northern Michigan last winter. Well, I guess it depends on your definition of scenic: providing or relating to views of impressive or beautiful natural scenery. The forest is beautiful and natural to me.

    I really like that! Great shots in great country! I drove the ALCAN back in 2001 in a 1993 4R and man, those pictures you posted bring back memories. Such beauty in Gods country!
