All of these pics were taken on California Gulch (just up from Animas Forks), last Friday. The white Heep is a stock 4-door and pretty much stayed attached to a strap.

ETA: A bunch of Arkansas Crawlers took vacation together and went on a giant wheelin' roadtrip.

Snow's a bit deep, even with 38" SXs...

Yeah, the snowpack there was 200% of normal this year, so there's still a lot of snow left. Last time I checked (last week), just about everything was open except Black Bear Pass, and it should be open soon. We're about a month away from the meet, so I expect everything will be open by then.

Sounds like the next time I try should be in August! We wanted to try Poughkeepsie, but California gave us all we wanted...
