Hmmm, I don't really hear about people doing that. All the obstacles will be downhill, and there's that long narrow stretch in the beginning where if we happen on encounter oncoming traffic, would be tough to negotiate. I'm not completely opposed to the idea, but maybe we can evaluate it as we're going up on Saturday.

Yeah, I am pretty bummed, but there is always next time. Just got a lot of **** in the last couple of days, and we just had an offer accepted yesterday on a house we bid on earlier this week, so there is that. I just didn't have time to take care of some (little) issues with the Jeep I needed to take care of before tomorrow.

But I am really bummed!!! I look forward to the pics.

I know it could, but it would help if it had rock rails. Too risky if you do not want body damage on it.

Rebuilt sorry you couldnt make it hopefully next time.

Sorry we didn't really get any action pictures or videos on the trail. It was a busy day on the trail and I didn't want to slow down the group behind us to stop and take pictures and video.

Here's what I got.

Here's a video of the last stretch of Miller Jeep Trail, which is the most difficult section. The video doesn't really do it justice, but it's not terribly difficult either.

The rocky creek crossing on Miller Jeep Trail, just after Sunset Camp, where we had lunch.
