    Nice pictures. You're right there's nothing too technical looking there-- though I say that as a person who's owned and driven real 4x4s for 15 years. When I've gone on trails like that with friends more familiar with street-racing than off-roading they've always expressed surprise at how casually I-- and my vehicle-- handle the challenge.

    Nice post, Dan, these kinds of explorations are what living west of the Rockies is all about.

    I just need to convince my work to keep a fleet of 4x4 vehicles for use as weekend loaners so I can do the same thing without suffering the atrocious fuel economy and tire costs of that Wrangler during everyday use. You guys are fortunate.

    Now THAT is my kind of road trip - great post!!
  • Yeah, I traded my 2006 Honda Pilot 4WD for a 2012 Nissan Xterra Pro4x last year just so I could combine my CA Sierra and Death Valley trips with some OHV stuff. For casual OHV people like myself, it's best to be cautious and not try anything beyond your vehicle's ability and your skill. I'm amazed at how much more difficult some of these trails can be compared to the photos you see in guidebooks, blogs, etc.
    Thanks for the cool article and nice pics!
