Ive heard a few are closed from snow right now though. May sound silly, but growing up listening to C.W. and his stories of Black Bear Road makes me want to relive those songs - but I will not lose my Jeep over the edge of a cliff from a rock slipping out from under the wheel
I think I would be scared to drive my CJ some of the places we went. Other than the ride quality the wrong mechanical failure at the wrong time could lead to a very bad day.

Looks like google will be my friend with the Dwight H. Dude.

Vicki and I are home safe and sound! And more good news, the boat will be in a storage unit before the end of the week. $75 a month will give me a lot more room in the CJ, J truck, YJ, yep I still have it 1/2 converted, but driveable.

Don't bother- he has done nothing of note, and is a bit of a baby.

Glad you're home safe Papa Billy.

He is a basketball player.


Parents watched the kids today. Jenn and I spent the day walking through town and visiting an art fair. It was drizzling / raining on and off so the streets were pretty empty. Kind of nice.

Tomorrow is our last day. Heading to Glenwood Springs for some cave tours and. The hot springs pool.

I have that book, pretty good. It's where I first learnt about the "Cherokee overlap" through the 80s when they ran the FSJ alongside XJ. We didn't get that Cherokee untill the 90s and definitely not in a Ute version.

Awesome holiday MoC. As always I'm envious of what you guys can get to over there. Ain't nothing like that around here. Thanks for the pics.

Last day is over..

Went to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. Great time for all. They have 2 separate cave tours and some fun rides for adults and kiddos.

















And for a going away present we got a rainbow on the ride home.




Packing up and heading on the 2 day drive home first thing in the morning. Sad to leave... Thanks to those who came along for the ride!

Did you ride that thing that swings out off the mountain? That looks like a real shorts soiler.

There is no way you are going to swing me out over the canyon! And what are you riding there... some kind of go-cart??

We rode them all, some 3 -4 times. The go cart looking thing was like a luge. It went 1/2 down the mountain by gravity then pulled back up by a machine. The tall tower thing was a zip line.

Stopped by the "Cadillac Ranch" on the way in to Amarillo. Gabby and Liam got a kick out of adding their names to the masses.


ready to be home now that we have left, Liam's shirt says it all...
