Went hunting south of Alamosa this weekend and on the way back decided to hit Blanca Peak Trail. I've wanted to do this trail for a long time and figured since I was in the area I would give it a shot. The trail is still in great condition if anyone still plans to go anytime soon.

*Disclaimer* Yes, I wheeled with no other vehicles. No it wasn't smart. But yes I conquered the trail. I took a risk and was willing to walk if need be.

Now on to the pics:thumb:

Airing Down

Up Jaws 2

Jaws 3 or 4 (I lost count of them)

At the top (I felt like I earned a poser shot)

Coming down Jaws 4 (yep, another poser shot)

God's Country

awesome! yes there is some risk involved, but if you are prepared to accept that a solo day out with your rig is really really nice.

Yea, we had several times where we thought this was a stupid idea, we'd keep saying alright we'll do this obstacle then just take at peek further up the trail. We did that the whole way.

It really is a badass trail, one of my favorites but also the scariest. The obstacles are challenging, but in several locations the consequences for a bad line or a lapse in concentration can prove extremely dangerous. We took a very long time planning our lines for this one.

Thinking about you Ed. I hope life is treating you well. Just something about you I jive with. :redface:
