This was the first REAL trip on a Jeep trail since Adam and Shai fixed up the Jeep with Jay last month. Jay did drive it up Mill Creek Road last week which probably doesn't really count as a Jeep trail even though it's a steep 4-wheel drive road.
We picked a nice, wide spot to park on the road where Jay would have plenty of room to turn around, then we walked on up to the two waterfalls and to the spot in the road where there was deep snow.
This is a definite stopping point. The road ahead of this huge chunk of snow seems to be really washed out and I'm not sure we would be able to drive here anyway. Hopefully there will be some road maintenance up there soon.
These two waterfalls will only be flowing for a month or so as the snow up higher melts. The pile of rocks behind me and Maralee here is actually a rock slide that came down on top of ice and snow. There was obviously an avalanche in this area because many aspen trees were pushed over, but my pictures didn't turn out well because of how cloudy and overcast it was today. Tomorrow we are expecting sunny skies and will be spending Memorial Day in Moab and Arches National Park.
Last but definitely not least, here is Jay's newest toy. He traded in his Suzuki motorcycle for a Triumph Sprint ST with ABS. He got an amazing deal on it at the Fun Center in Durango.
