Miller Jeep Trail 8/23/08

Had a great run today. SoCalRubi, JackTuttle, and Yours Truly did Miller Jeep Trail and Wheeled around Hungry Valley Off-Road Park. We had absolutely beautiful weather and no traffic to make us wait 8)
We met some cool guys with Jks too and one of them (Dave/Black 4door) showed us some really cool obstacles to do. Thanks Dave!
Overall a very perfect day.
Thanks Everybody

Nope, no ash. Lots of new growth and wild flowers. Still looks like a dead forest though. I guess all those dead trees will take a few years to biodegrade.

Yeah it's a great trail. Though not as hardcore as I thought it would be, It had some tough spots that were pretty challenging. It has changed a lot since I've been there. You don't run Lockwood creek to get to the Miller trail head anymore.

Pix of the Miller Jeep Trail/Hungry Valley Run

We have a great trip. As always Billy made it exciting.

Then we found Billy on the road:





Airing down.......




Then we're off....wandering through all the creepy burned trees:

Looks like a great time out. Some nice artistic shots in there. I like the one shot with the moon behind the tree. That red YJ looks sick also. Some nice flex shots on the short steps. Also like the shots of the yellow school bus and the black and white offroad limos.

I've been wanting to do this trail for a long time, thanks Jack. And thanks Melissa for so many cool pics. You really are a good photographer. I can't seem to hold the camera still enough to get clear shots. Cheers

Love the pics and the last video cracked me up right at the end:

"you had to do it"

"it's a jeep thing"

classic.

GREAT trail ride.

I really like this pic. It shows just how steep parts of the trail really are.

I'm Lazy..... Here are some of the better shots.

I did send some pics to Teraflex of the Flexing at Hungry Valley and they posted them on their website.
