That was AMAZING! I guess the Airstream got there via a different route! The Patriarch was inspiring. My right leg hurts from braking on those mountains!

Great pictures of a remarkable trip. We have a home in ML and are up there often but when we sold the IH Scout II quit the back roads. Took the towed out looking for the wild horses and found out it doesn't do well in the giggle bushes. Grabbed a handful in the cross brace and due to the catylitic converter started a little fire under the Suzi. TG we were on the pavement when the fire started. Now we know better than to take old roads like we took.

Great trip, jefe -- sorry I missed it. I did stop off at Saddle Bag lake on the way home from the Northwest Territories (working on a TR), but I missed you by a couple of days. Maybe next time --
