    I've been wanting to run Medano pass for a long time and then spend some time at the dunes. I hear there is a bit of sand that you should be prepared for. Anything crazy?

    Nothing crazy. I didn't air down and it was raining pretty heavy and had zero issues. Hit it with a little speed and already in 4x and you are gold. Just don't hit the water crossings very fast, there were a few Jeep Cherokee's and Honda Pilots that were stranded.

    On my way home tonight right on the Idaho/Washington border. Saw a nice sunset and had just washed the 4Runner in town, so figured it would make for a good glamour shot.

    WE were very surprised at the colors. I had only seen that kind of blue water in the Caribbean.

    Yes, the deep blue sky at high elevation deserts is lovely. Less air molecules and less pollution particles means less scattering of light. More of the basic black of the sky comes through and our eyes see a darker blue.
    Here’s a shot at Grand Staircase - Escalante NM in Utah, 5000 ft elevation.

    Sorry But I thought he was referring to the Water? I worked on Offshore Platforms (Before Global Warming) in GOM 150mi+ out. The nights out there W/NO lights except other platforms, it was like a planetarium! The Sky met the horizon 360 degrees.

    Ahhhh, now I get it! I was thinking of the photo scene.
    I had to look this up about the blue Potash Ponds. That potash brine is artificially dyed blue to absorb sunlight to heat up and dry faster.

    Check out the photos at this link. They’re incredible.

    The pools in the Havasupai canyon hike years ago were breathtaking...

    This weekend's camping location. Nothing crazy getting there but there was a section that was on a steep incline, rutted out and really muddy. The stock tires did just fine but I can't wait until I get the upgrades in late July.

    From this afternoon in the middle of the Hayman Fire burn zone. The Hayman Fire was in 2002 and grew to nearly 140000 acres. One firefighter and six civilians died, and 600+ structures burned.
    The area is starting to grow back, but the scars are very visible in the area.

    You can see evidence of the Cameron Peak fire from last year behind that pic I uploaded above. We've had some doozies in the last 20 years.
