I love Last Chance
I have been riding LCC for years on dirt bikes and it is always fun, I have yet to do it with my Jeep but I will do it soon. Hell it's in my back yard so to speak.
You can do it alone if you bypass the V notch, which I will as I don't have the skills for THAT yet. Did you all go to Bickle Camp while you were there? It is close to Burro Schmidts and you may have seen the signs.
Another fun canyon is Goler Wash about 5-6 miles to the east, it has a few rock steps that depending on the rain we have had just might stop you in your tracks!

Igofishn and I stood on the back bumper and nerf bar to right him. He backed up took a better line and walked right on through.

Here you can see his predicament.
cweed recovering Kyle.
cweed broke a brake line so he welded it shut to save his brakes and fininshed out the day just fine.
Here is cweed going into the notch backwards. His first line was not the right one.

Last Chance Canyon
Yesterday, I left home a 4AM to drive 4.5 hours to Red Rock OHV area. Its about 20 miles north of Mojave,CA. I went with IGOFISHN from MJR, he and some of the local club he belongs to plus Billygoat from MJR also. There were six rigs in total, 1) CJ7, 2) CJ5's, 1) TJ, 1) Sami and 1) Taco. I've never wheeled in the SoCal deserts before and this place is awesome. Its actually referred to as "the high desert" because of its elevation and location. It was great to get out of the ice and snow for just one day. It was mostly sunny all day and hit about 50 at the heat of the day. This area is as typical for desert southwest historic mining country. One of the highlights is Burro Schmidts tunnel, this old miner dug with hand tools a 2000ft. tunnel clean through the mountain chasing a vein of gold. It took him 38 years to do this. I met a bunch of new people again. Good fun as always.
And yes I had a great time.............
