The ridge is on the way to middle, but just below it ... there's a two-track at the top of Rodgers Ridge were you can continue past it and end up at the top, right side of Middle rock garden. The ridge's obsticle is about 1/2 way up that has a big notch were most people take the right side line up the bank.


That's what's really cool about the place ... I think ... is that most the trails/obsticles are right off of main trails so you can opt out if needed.

Yep! That is where Brian is talking about. He was scaring the piss out of me on there. It was like he was pissed at it. But he did it in just a few minutes and even Jeremy can't say that (but he did have a broken coilover though).

That's the other cool thing about the place ... conditions are constantly changing. You make an obsticle one day, try again the next and can't make it.

Kind of like Rattle Rock, the first time I went I drove it with minimal problems, next time I go back could be a catrastrophy.

Those were one of the empty cans we found out there ... we were using it as a prop.

This is also one of those times a highlift tire chain thing would be nice.

That was left by a couple of bystanders, people not directly involved with the recovery effort... thanks for the watchdogging though....
