Oh man, feel the white D1 love.

The force is strong in those pics.


montanablur May 18th, 2007 04:54 PM

Thank you gentlemen...

Now to 'fessup... The really great pics from Lockhart Basin and Indian Creek were inadvertently lost into the ether. You should have seen those...:confused:

Steve Rupp May 29th, 2007 06:23 PM

That picture of Steph cracks me up. She was not the happiest camper that night.

montanablur May 29th, 2007 07:56 PM

We could have made it to the cabin too...

Here's a little video I made of Steve Rupp and I going over Elephant Hill. A little different perspective than most vids going over. This used to be an extremely difficult trail, although sometime in the last ten years the park service filled in a lot of the ledges so that they could empty the pit toilets the road accessed.

Mainly a fun little trail with amazing beauty.

Still waiting on some HD footage to be transfered into Final Cut, so this footage is all from a single chip Sony. But... I have been getting antsy and wanted to start cutting something together...

I am not sure i'd fit in the tight spots... pretty cool.

Isn't that where that dude lost his arm?

Next time, don't drive so close to the cliff. LOL

Great video.

Blue John canyon is where Aaron Ralston lost his arm. The slot featured here is about 15-25 miles northish.

Cool video. Thanks to you and Marc and the rest of the Ute's Steve has developed a certain disdain for the local Midwestern wheeling.

Can't blame him at all. I need to get out there and wheel....


nosivad_bor June 1st, 2007 10:03 AM

Its so much more than wheeling its hard to even classify it as that.

1/4-wheeling 1/4-hiking 1/4-camping 1/4-relaxation.

I'm ready to go back , who's in?


Eric Siepmann June 1st, 2007 11:47 AM

I'd be more than willing to take a road trip. Hopefully hook up with Steve and head west.


Steve Rupp June 1st, 2007 05:09 PM

Sinuhe and I were chatting about the fall trip last night. No plans really but just talking about it got me pumped. This time I have a hammock. :D

Eric if you want to come out you better start studying for tech. Sinuhe and I need someone else to talk to since Marc can't keep his radio on.

Eric Siepmann June 1st, 2007 05:29 PM

Just tell me where to study and I'll get crackin.....


traveltoad June 1st, 2007 07:57 PM
