Guys what a
time we had this weekend on Georgia Pass.
was just Toby, his wife and me and my family, including the dog.
The trail is great!
Easy up to Glacier
Peak, great views, even had the kids going, "Wow it's REALLY deep
down there.". Glacier Peak was a great place for lunch and let the
kids and dog run round. Sammy (the dog) even helped Toby fix some
linkage that lost a clip.
Then we started
down the north side of the trail, somewhat steep and lots of rocks.
There was a tons of turnouts along the way, but we didn't explore
any at first. The storm clouds were moving in and wanted to get
a camp site setup BEFORE the rain. We stopped and took lots of pics,
hopefully we captured some great articulation. There was plenty.
it was moderate you had watch what you where doing, the wrong line
could lead to trouble. But, Tantor did great with the stock suspension.
It really amazing what this "cars" will do. We found several places
where we could get a wheel up in the air, fun stuff.
Then a herd
of rental vehicles came by, we pulled off the trail for those going
up. What a fantastic campground we found. It had room for several
more vehicles as we found out, as folks kept trying to make it their
home. Sammy was great at scaring them off, even though he's really
very laid back. Camp set up quick and the rains looked like they
would go away. Time for a walk, what else do 2 and 4 year olds what
Toby and I went
up one of the turnouts. Too cool!! It was almost too narrow for
the Wagoneers, very rocky, steep and had some places that looked
like they could get at least the pumpkins, maybe more. So back down
to get Tantor, with Rocky having a weak link at the front axle it
wasn't worth risking it and back up we went. This was the highlight
for me. I got to test all the things I had been practicing, where
are your tires, get to where you can't see, steps of loose rock,
etc. It lead back into a dead end with just enough room to turn
around. We got some funny looks from some guys on those 4 wheeled
A nice cool
day overall, with an even cooler evening. The bad part was Toby
seems to have caught the grunge and was starting to lose color by
The trip down
Sunday was fun and easy. Can't wait to get back up there to start
checking out some of the turnouts. There was one where a guy with
a Cherokee headed up and came back out before we had started up
again, said it got narrow and needed clearance. He had at least
a 3 inch lift and 33's on... HMMM wonder what he really saw...
