Elbe Hills Fun Run 6/13/2010

The Elbe Fun Run was great! I don't have time right now to post a complete write-up + pictures, but will edit/add to this post later this evening or tomorrow. Hope admin will allow me to Edit this post tomorrow! I did manage to make all 7 check points without any trouble. Trails we ran were (i think...)

SUMMARY;
1. Sunrise
2. Mainline
3. Mainline Extension
4. Gotcha
5. Rainier Vista

I didn't do the rock descent at the top/by the bowl. In fact, a Toy on 39's wussed out, too...The fun spots (for me) were the Alder Trail and the Rainier Vista. Sunrise was good, too. Lots of carnage for many on this absolutely gorgeous day....you name it, they broke it...my poker hand was 2-pair; 3's & 4's..

We didn't stick around for the 3:30 poker deadline/drawing. Instead, we bailed and went to the 1500 Road via Skate Creek/US 12 and over the pass that BaddAndy took my on a month or two ago. The snow is all gone from up there! We got to Whistlin' Jack's aired up, fueled up and fed our faces and returned via Hwy 410. I left that morning at 6:00 am and got home about 10:30 pm...man am i bushed...

A few quick shots;



Cherokee at the log run on Gotcha, or Alder, not sure which it is.



This is the rock climb at Rainier Vista. I had to take the bypass to the left. The Jeep in front was locked all around on 35's and made it unscathed. (I'm open in the back/d35 on 33's...)



First checkpoint on Sunrise



Log run shot



Blazer on the Alder Trail. This was a tough spot, however there was a bypass that I took. A small, tall stump made the bypass a bit gnarly, too.

Before this obstacle there was one that had about a 3-4' drop on it right next to a tree. Damage was almost guaranteed but, I made it safely. One guy had his brakes fail and ran uncontrollably into a tree. Not sure what his rig was. He was among the throng of bystanders looking to see the carnage and I spoke only briefly to him as I naviated the obstacle.

Great day! More pics later...
