He we are on the first day of trails. The trail groups were just thrown together the first day. Whoever you happened to be standing near was the group you were in. I got lucky and ended up in a great group that chose to stick together through the rest of the time at the rally. He we are lined up waiting for road work to let us through.

I got to use my new recovery point a lot durring the weekend. We all took turns getting stuck...

He's our group lines up again going through a meadow. It was so neat to have all the Rovers lined up like this. When you are used to seeing about one Land Rover a month, this was incredible.

Here I am going through the meadow... Here is where we stopped for lunch the first day. Everywhere we went was breath taking. These pictures can't begin to describe it.

On the way back I had to play on the muddy slope everyone else got stuck on... I got stuck too. Yep, I'm stuck. Here Noah is getting ready to yank me out.

Here's Noah on Road 21. Man I wish I had stuck around for this trail!! His vehicle is bone stock. (sway bars and all!) Not bad!

Here's Greg from Safari Gard in a rut. OK, that might be an understatement, he was seriously stuck. It took our entire group almost an hour to get him out "Camel Trophy" style using shovels and a High-Lift jack.

Still snow around up in the mountains. This is a cool picture with the old Series Rovers playing in the snow. I bet the guy in the soft top wasn't wearing shorts like the rest of us!
