    So 3 days until we head to Colorado- can’t wait - been 25 years since I lived there and excited to go back to where my US origins began. Turned 50
    Within the last month - my wife set me up with a track day driving a Lamborghini huracan - one word “stressful” . Was it fun - yes . But stressful - blind hills at 100mph are not my thing anymore - life has taught me to be cautious - So looking forward to being back in the San Juan’s where I can shut down cell service, fish and unwind . Plan is to drive a couple of the alpine passes . But if I don’t - I really don’t mind - I just want to unwind and relax and soak in the vistas and peace of the mountains. The Lambo reminded me of that
    Getting old is great ! No
    Money issues, no kid issues- other than child support and life is rich. Colorado here we come . Stay tuned for a few daily updates - as cell service dictates. Fuck Covid fuck work. Fuck stress.

    Day three and back to civilization- spent a night on the Rio Grande near Questa in an amazing location about 1,000 ft above the River, a night in the Rio De Los Pinos Nat. Forest - 3 days no shower and the wife called a hotel night so we are in Durango and will eat at the Derailed Pour house tonight! Been an awesome trip thus far - camping locations have been spectacular remote and alone . Bathed in the Rocky Mountain waters this morning . Wife wanted to know if I rescued the little girl that was hollering lol. Headed to Near Silverton tomorrow- then Ophir pass on Monday into Telluride and Rendezvous with Lee a forum member on Tuesday to tag along with him over Imogene. Wednesday up to silver jack for a day or two and some fishing then onto Colorado Springs for a day visiting family. More pics to come But here are a few - anyone wanting to know camo locations on the Rio I will share as the trails in we’re breath taking ( scenery).

    Im two years behind as well. Gawd, that’s just exactly what I’d love to be doing right now.

    How do you like the trailer?

    - trailer was awesome we pulled it into 4x4 trails that were very rough held up extremely well - we beat on it harder than it’s designed for I think
    - Sunday we drove engineer pass from the silverton side and I then made the mistake of listening to a guy in a stock Tacoma and taking Mineral creek back to Ouray late in the day around 4.30 pm - holy shit is that trail beat up and rough. We did it in torrential rain showers Major and multiple sets of off camber steps that push you toward the drop off . My wife coined this trail Jumunji as it was always another level of high stress and tests getting down . This did her in for Imogene and we bailed out on Lee which sucked … but I still felt very good about getting down Mineral creek unscathed. The guy is the Taco - not so much - beat up rockers and rear hitch pretty good and high centered multiple times
    Wish I had pics but I don’t as it was all I could do to focus on getting down before dark
    We exited this trail onto hey 50 at about 7:45 pm - 7 miles in all. I highly recommend running it as long as you are lifted and on 33s with armor- also suggest having a second vehicle with someone you are familiar with . The trail name is Engineering trail and has been torn up by the RZR crew pretty good . All in all though a lot of fun
    - we ran Ophir on Monday - one section that will have you concentrate but other was an easy ride into Telluride , took Last dollar road out of Telluride over to Ridgway- also a beautiful drive with a steep incline up to the top
    - Tuesday/ Wednesday/Thursday we ran over Owl creek pass and camped dispersed in the uncompaghre NF - did some fishing and just relaxed. . Below are a few pics from
    The trip. Already planning the make up trip for Imogene - hoping this fall. We packed alot in - spent 6 nights in the trailer - rained every day around 4 pm. 4625DAE3-10C7-478E-8170-672BB610502D.jpg835232E6-AC89-418E-B18C-6732EB04D2E1.jpg

    Last year I drove from Ouray up Mineral Creek in my TJ on 35s. Fun trail but I’d hate to met anyone going the opposite way. Stretches of off camber trail with uphill tires on rock and the downhill tires on single track at the edge of a steep slope. I remember one switchback, hard left and up from an off camber start. That would be more interesting going downhill. There was a deep “dip” or wash in the trail higher up. That looked like a problem for vehicles with a lot of overhang or low bumpers. I’d have been reluctant to potentially bash my T4R along that trail. Glad to hear it’s passable.

    That looks like a hell of a trip. The way you tell it, a Go-Pro video of your exploits on Engineering Pass would have been entertaining.

    I do agree with this...

    But you do have a very nice ride.

    Go pro would be the only way to really capture the essence of mineral creek I did a quick google on this trail - several u tube vids and one guys write up on his mistakes in a land cruiser- a rolled over jeep and the cruiser slid off the edge and high centered . as far as clean vehicle - super dusty inside and out but the rain every day sort of washed the exterior… sort of.

    2nd picture was a place we camped along the rio grande in New Mexico outside of Questa
    Beautiful area - clay and sandy trail going in that went for miles . It’s on my list to go back - very quite and fun trails it was about a mile down to the river . I didn’t hike down due to time constraints but next time will do so as I have to think the fishing would be good due to the remote and relatively hard access

    Happy birthday, and thanks for this! It's nice to cruise through a thread like this with good pics that give one a feel for how the trip was. Life is short indeed, too short for stress and BS. Keep enjoying!

    Looks worth finding, will have to look for it. Heading out with the teardrop in August.

    From the look of this pic, you not only found the best campground, you may have stayed in the best campsite.......(take a look at my avatar :)).

    We stayed at Molas lake for 2 nights. 18A. Tucked in the back - very nice.

    I meant to text you, but you dodged a bullet. We were up on Imogene heading to Telluride past the peak when the rain and mudslides started. Had to rescue a Search and Rescue 1337 trainnee (poor guy) and about 20 others our group ended up leading down the mountain.

    4 mudslides we had to drive over and dig out, they have now closed Imogene for the rest of the year due to that event.

    Honestly, myself and the other 2 drivers have a lot of experience (one has even been on 2 Ultimate Adventures if you're familiar with that) and it was pretty intense. I'd love to play it down but there were some points I was sure we were staying on the mountain for a day or two, and navigating one slide had rocks raining down on us which dented one guys hood and scratched my roof paint a little. I swear it sounded like it cracked my sunroof but I couldn't find a crack.

    Glad you all made it down safely.

    Wife is bummed. We're heading for Ouray in August and Imogene is by far her favorite trail.
