    Two weeks ago I hiked the trail above the Moffet Tunnel that leads to Roger's Pass Lake, Heart Lake, etc...

    Still some snowpack on in the shade/north-facing slopes.

    I know that doesn't mean much about wheeling up Rollins Pass, but that's all I got for ya man :eek:

    Don't even bother, Went up in Buddies jeep last weekend 4/22 can only get about 4 miles up then blocked by snow. It looks like you can make it too till we saw the Suburban around the bend trying to winch himself out. Another month at least, I would say. Unless you have an ATV

    lol... that spring snow.

    Looks passable until you sink all the way to the bottom of the body.

    Been there, done that (on Wolf Creek Pass)... no thanks

    Well.... According to this website: http://bushducks.com/tripreps/passopen.htm#rollins

    As of 3-25-12 "Snow drifts start 1/4 mile up the trail. Can't get near the washout or the other large drifts. Will be at least 6 weeks before you can get to the lakes. We had to pull a jeep from NM out of the drift."

    Just took the Tacito down Bunce School road (Colorado, Boulder county). Perfect place for newbies to try out a stock Taco.
    {note: ran north to south from Hwy 72, FS gate closed on south end, could not finish through to Camp Dick. Easy turn around though}
    Able to test the downhill assist on chunky terrain.
    This truck made it SO EASY. What a feat of engineering.

    Those dang potholes sure do make it a long, slow drive. Thanks for the update, really appreciate it.
