We did mineral creek and Poughkeepsie today. I crawled the wall and my wife made it up in her i lifted 13 without winching. Weather was perfect. Met some good folks. We ended with two more jeeps with us to animas forks where we split. We went into silver ton to eat and poke around. It did rain on the way back. Oh yeah, 550+rain+finicky hydro steering was not fun.
Mineral creek was very fun. Lots of little rock to play in. There is a spot not far in on the right with a few fire pits and a nice view.
Poughkeepsie was fun. I think the fx summit traffic worsened trail conditions which added to the fun. Lots of paths up past the wall. Definitely some fun rock to play in. That 12600 foot air is thin. Plan for additional time at the wall and lake. We ended up spotting at the wall and had to winch one. Pulling that line at altitude while living at almost sea level was an experience. Definitely do this one while here. My wife got lots of cheers and honks when she made it up the wall. That was her first real obstacle and she loved it.
We will do Yankee boy today and take it easy. Tomorrow will be Ophir and Imogene. Next day will be engineer and cinnamon.

I have jeeps. I do shit to them.
