Seven vehicles with twelve happy jeepers had a wonderful day playing on the rocks.

The weather was perfect and it was a great spring outing for all: Kevin Fox (who was a big help in taking us to the points of interest, aka Obstacles!); Gunther Hektor (event organizer) and wife Marci; Scott Click (on his Birthday!), wife Kim and son Curtis;

Chad Beal; Paul Wilson and wife Julie; Karen Dussaman and Scott’s guest, Ken Skelly and friend Doug.

We met at the staging area for airing down at 10:00a.m. and in about 15 minutes we were ready to roll. The area was unmarked as far as where to turn off the main Power Line Road and Kevin knew right where to take us for some fun.

Everyone did great on the trail

and some enjoyed the extra climbing.

Traveled along the upper rim of Skinny Canyon.

This included an extra bypass to the main trail.

Then we did the Anazazi Refrigerator Trail.

At 12:30 p.m. everyone was ready for lunch break, as we had worked up an appetite playing hard.

Next stop was at Photo Rock, yes, for a photo opt.

After this, many of the group felt it was time to head home so Kevin took them to the Graffiti Bowl before they left. Two jeeps (Chad and Gunther )had decided to have some more fun and made their way to the Intimidator. The climb up went well, but the last obstacle was undoable without a little help from the winch.

The day was great fun and every one went home happy!
