Easter Jeep Safari is one of the largest 4wd gatherings in the world and we are lucky enough to be next door and enjoy the 9 days of fun.

We were awarded the BFG Good Trails Award for our work on Black Bear Pass yet again!

Elwood Pass Fall 2015

Great weekend camp out to enjoy the fall weekend.  A few of us camped at the bottom of Elwood Pass and we made our way over the pass to Stunner Pass, up to Kerr Lake, and down to the bustling ghost town of Platoro. Sunday a couple of us ran up to Quartz Meadow. elwood15-1

Black Bear Work Day 2015

Wasn’t much work to be done this year so we enjoyed the views.  The main thing we saw to be repaired was where some vehicles went of the road through a marsh which we put in some rocks and more signs.  On the way home most of us took Imogene Pass and a few took the shorter Ophir Pass home.


New ruts in the marsh that we had to block off.
