Default Mounds needs examples of Rock courses

The Genesee County Risk Manager is looking for examples of a 'typical' Rock Crawl course that we envision for the Mounds.
So, what I need are pictures of courses, preferabally with a vehicle on the rocks and it goes without saying that the vehicle has to be on ALL 4 WHEELS! So, no pictures of HJ turtled or playing dead @ Unlimited Offroad Grand Opening!
In all seriousness though, this is the make or break point for the Rock Course The County will be evaluating the risk they would be undertaking and making an assessment of their exposure to lawsuits and injuries for an obstacle course like this.
No whining about 'it's an off road couse' and 'stuff' is gonna happen. I just want to send her pictures of what we would envision for a course. i.e. rock sizes, layout, as in around trees and up hills, etc. I already have a few from my presentation last year and will forward them along with what I get here.
Video's would be great as long as we host them and send them the link. I don't want to give them an 'avenue in' to You-Tube videos that would be damaging to the environment, i.e. oil spills, or showing vehicles rolling over.
Thanks in advance for everyones help. We are getting closer!

gunnite might not be the best choice thought, it does wear a lot and tears tires up badly. it can be sprayed thicker though...

These are two of my videos from past KU trips.

They first one has a few really good scenes from the badlands which has the kind of obstacles I think your imagining, and some easier and harder stuff.... A few questionable scenes Both should be fairly risk-management safe since we've had to contend with the school's risk management in the past and never had an objection to it.

I will ask around to the guys on MJR if they have anything that may be useful. But most of what we have out here is 'natural' and it sounds like you want courses that have been 'made'.
