I tagged along with a Colorado Classic Bronco run on Chinaman Gulch over the weekend. We had a nice clean run, we had heard that there was a large Toyota group planning on running that day so we ensured an early start and were on the trail at 815.

This trail has gotten many times harder than it was a few years ago when I ran without the locker I cannot imagine having as much success now.

Started with the rock pile Jason and his narrowed EB (10 inches) played on the BIG rocks the rest of us took the “easier” way













Playing on a pile of rock in the middle of the trail



Then the waterfall, again Jason tries the hard line on the far left the rest of us go for the middle route

The only carnage of the weekend was on Friday after setting up the camper we got a micro-burst that tried to destroy the awning on my pop-up







Found the pictures I lost here are a few more shots from the trip.

THa looks like a great time!

I miss living in CO. The mountains are just a hop skippity jump from Erie (I think I lived down the street from you. I remember seeing a black bronco).

I'm not sure where you were at tho.. I'm guessing north eastern of the rockies but I dunno. Looks beautiful trails tho.

yo W,

Great times!

The mountain views are fantastic; much better than overpasses and sandy roads here.

Thanks.
