    We went camping with some friends at Taylor Park reservoir this weekend. They were already there so we decided to take a more "scenic" drive. So we headed up Old Monarch Pass (F.S. 237) just off Hwy. 50. It's an easy trail (2wd) but very pretty an no traffic!

    Up next was Black Sage Pass (F.S. 887) it too was an easy drive. Lots of cows on the trail.

    Waunita Pass (F.S 763) was next on the list of trails for the day. Ya, it too was an easy 2wd trail.

    The last trail of the day was Cumberland Pass (F.S. 765).

    It too was another 2wd trail except a little spur we took to check out an old mine.

    The rest of the trail was a nice open wide trail to have some fun driving on. I really like the way the truck handles the rough terrain. For a stock suspension it is really smooth considering we did not air down.

    Day 2: We did Tincup Pass (F.S. 267). Finally a reason for 4 low! Her truck did pretty darn good, it made a challenge out of it instead of it being just another scenic trail (compared to my Jeep).
    Mirror lake at the beginning of the trail.

    Here is a little video of an "obstacle".

    From the top it was a pretty easy trip down. we did hit the "skid plate" a few times, but nothing bad.

    That looks like an awesome trip. You are a brave soul going out there on those "rugged trail" tires though.

    This was the 1st time we made it over the top (too much snow for the old 2wd Ford Escape in late September in '09) Now that we have the Taco, it gives us more peace of mind when we do this stuff. Would be nice to find someone else to go with us, just in case. Back in the early 70's when I was doing Mosquito Pass with my CJ5, you still had a chance you could fix something. Now, all it takes is an electronic glitch & your screwed. AAA won't tow from up there, & it's a long walk to a phone. Can't wait to do it again this year. :)
