    Default red elephant hill and Bill Moore lake



    Aaron, Eric, his nephew, and friend, Bryce and I had a perfect day escaping the heat on the trails today. Red elephant is a great hill climb. Bill Moore lake will be un reachable for a few weeks, but there is still plenty of trail to be run. Crossing mill creek a few times was great. A few pics

    Red Elephant is always a good hill climb and can be quite a challenge. Seems like it is somewhat different every year.

    The views were stunning and we even had these giant mounds of air conditioning all around us, it was glorious!
    I'll post up my images today to share as well.

    EDIT: To add, Eric's horn is ridiculously loud!

    EDIT 2: Moar Pics!

    Did you guys take the left form or the right form on red elephant hill?
    We did it last year for 4th of July.
    That's where I busted the welds in the rear diff.
    We put 46 miles on the jeep the day in 4low mind you.

    From what I was told you need to go right, at the tree roots to stay on the trail
    going left is not the correct trail even though we went that way first then turned around lol

    Back in 2003 - the brave little [rented] Kia Sorento that went with us up Red Elephant.
