Unfortunately most of my pictures from Monday and Tuesday are of the scenery and Mouser only.

Here's one from Tuesday of Smuz driving Wilson on the "Fins n Things" trail:

We made it with only one flat tire on the trailer. I uploaded 206 pictures from my camera tonight, and had them running as a slideshow during the potluck dinner. They are currently uploading to photobucket, but this network at the campground is slow, so it may be tomorrow before I can post a link. We are having a BLAST though! A total of 10 LJ's made it, plus vagabond in his stock Samurai. My RHD put on a nice little show on one climb (that the other stock LJ's chose to bypass!)

My orange LJ10 (which the kids lovingly call "Cheez Whiz") had to limp back to camp on one cylinder yesterday, so today we only had nine LJ's and the Samurai on Sevenmile Rim today. I'll try to do a better trip report later.

Ok, Thursday some of us ran the Poison Spider Mesa trail. Best wheeling so far in my opinion.

Winnie, Tweedy Bird, Myers, and Smuz having a great time:

Some of the incredible scenery we saw on Poison Spider. Pictures absolutely do not do it justice.
Pspider007.JPG

We had to park on the slickrock and walk down a steep hill to see this arch, but it was totally worth it! The arch is in the face of a cliff, and the Colorado river is a few hundred feet below.
