Offroading in Rio Puerco, New Mexico

Thought I'd share a quick "no frills" video from my first off-road trip to Rio Puerco, New Mexico.

Nice dude, try going all the way up that slick rock next time!
Up that spot on the other side of my truck and to the left




And that video does not do those cliffs justice, they are HUGE!

Yup that's near Snoopy Rock. They call that set of slick rock "The Dragon's Back" I wanted to do that part when I wasn't alone. That area is a bit extreme for a stock truck. I'll try it when I have backup.

My initiation to wheeling was in a buddy's 4 runner out there. We unfortunately had a little incident in the body shop, but still had a great time. I think I bught my TRD Taco a few months later. Climbed the dunes at the entrance with the dealer plates still on!

Cool place for sure, thanks for sharing the vid!

I've been up near Jemez. Did some trails in the White Mesa area. Not bad, lots off dirt service roads going for miles. I also did the Cedro Peak run just East of ABQ off of i-40. That was pretty cool with some interesting rock hill climbs. We should get a meet together with all the TW locals sometime.
