    Default Lefthand Canyon 10-9-11



    Matt, his mom and her boyfriend and Chris and I took a relatively impromptu run up to Lefthand Canyon today. Photos later, but here's a video. We have John (Clutch211) to thank for the idea. Last time we were at Lefthand, John said I should "just lay on the other side of that rock and take pictures" as he was driving OVER () me...uh, no.

    You need therapy Heather.

    Great video. I really liked that trail. Was it pretty dead out there again?

    Not as dead this time. A bunch of trust funding college nuts - and Willie B from KBPI.

    Sweet! Not too bad. Everyone makes it sound like there are traffic jams up there.

    Matt, did you do Big Momma Hill?

    It's pretty damn steep. It was dry when I did it though!

    I know; my eyes just kind of do that on their own sometimes.

    Say, isn't your avatar from Big Momma Hill?

    Left Hand and Chinamans are two trails I haven't completed. You guys are lucky, with your dirty rigs and soiled underwear!

    Here's the album: https://picasaweb.google.com/blugnat...eat=directlink

    I want WB's CJ BAD. I was trying to get pix of it as we were approaching, and trying to be funny, asking if he wanted to trade Jeeps - before we realized it was him.

    Here's Chris standing IN Big Momma Hill. Matt's mom wasn't a fan of the hill, but she sure was a trooper.

    Here's the easy, first portion of Big Momma.

    I'm curious to know what happened here, that took out both sides of the fencing - cement bases and all - on Big Momma.

    Up the last part of Big Momma.


    "Oh, sh*t!"

    This is me, the one spot I drove all day (after Chris drove it once first, of course).

    Some flexy stuffy business near the end of the trail - it was a new four-foot deep hole there on the driver's side.


    The weather was great, and we lucked out again, running into minimal people. I'm starting to get more of a picture of what some of the issue is with the trail, though, based on the type of people we ran into...It's such a great little area, kind of like a proving grounds for 4x4s - a little of everything packed into not too large a space. It's so unfortunate that some people are just bent on getting it (or causing it to be) closed down.
