Mountain Springs Stage Station Trail 3/27/11

We had 16 rigs total on this run. What a nice turn out. It was cold when we left

2010 Powder Puff Run

Pinyon Mountain Run 4-10-2010

Had a great run on Sunday. Left Denny's Ramona approx. 7:30am after a hearty breakfast. Met at the trail head at approx. 8:45am, had 8 rigs with 6 members and 5 guests. Desert was in full bloom, very pretty. Nobody left any paint at Jeep Squeeze. Rod and Howie climbed Heart Attack Hill on the left side without incident. The third obstacle was a challenge for a few on the trip.

SUPER 12 is another outstanding success!

Camp is packed up, but the aroma of Rita's Cowboy Grill still lingers. Hundreds of 4x4 enthusiasts have returned to their homes.

Beautiful weather with moderate temperatures enhanced a great weekend of adventure. Rigs from all over Southern California and beyond filled Superstition Mountain with fun and excitement as all skill levels were tested.
