Great trip report!!! I love your Colorado/4wheel camper set up. I've had my outfit over some real rough trails and I would try a couple you posted. But you have the ideal set up.

I can't afford a 2nd rig but maybe an off road trailer for the Jeep. Hmmmmmm........

Thanks for posting. I bet the weather was at least cooler up there!!!! [emoticon]

Wow! Those are fantastic pictures, and what a trip. Thanks for sharing. My complements to your wife on her pictures. What does she use for a camera?

Nice report. I like the way you have designed and built the Chevy Colorado.

Glad you enjoyed our part of Colorado. Lot of great county to explore from the deserts to the peaks. Someday we need to visit the UP and your area. Only 29 months to go.

Anyone visiting SW Colorado and need local advice, fill free to PM me.

About half the pictures were taken with a Nikon coolpix L100 that I just gave to my wife for her birthday. The other half were taken with my Sony Cybershot. Truth be told...most of the really good pictures were taken with my Cybershot. We just didn't have the Nikon on the right setting for the first few days of the trip. Next trip will be much better with this camera. The zoom on it is incredible (15 times).
