It looks like you did about 6 passes near Ouray. Do you have some favorites to recommend? I'm hoping to spend some time down there with my old Willys 3A and am interested to know what trails are "not to miss" and which aren't so great. Any advice is appreciated.


I'm in tie dye all the time. I can't get enough of it.

As for the best of the passes. Black Bear was my favorite followed by Imogene. Then I enjoyed the first part of Engineer to the pass out of Ouray ( via Mineral creek) then I would backtrack to Cinnamon then to California Gulch, Hurricane Pass , and Corkscrew Gulch back to Ouray.

My neighbor at the campground, Wade, led a group of 17 flat fenders over black Bear and back through Imogene one of the days we were there. Said a couple of the jeeps had air lock but they all made it.

Have a great time.

Thanks and No problem. I hope you all had a great time. Post a pic or two.

The songs in the video are by one of my favorite artists Josh Garrels.

I know Wade and have been reading about their adventures on the CJ2A page. Sounds like they did have a good week of it! They also have mentioned to "not do it alone". How did you handle that? Did you just show up at the trail heads and tag along with other vehicles? Or did you have a guide?

We just showed up and we're fortunate enough to meet up with people to run the trails with. Some of the trails were less traveled than others but there were plenty of people on them. You don't need a guide but the Colorado trails book is necessary IMO. The group we hung with on Black Bear and Imogene did help winch a couple back onto the trail (Imogene).

Enjoyed the video Andy. I'm impressed that the whole family tackled Angels Landing. That's not for the faint of heart.

Only my oldest and I went on Angels landing. It would have been too much for the rest of the family. The switchbacks were a real workout for our Florida bodies.

Here is my Black Bear video. Please be nice, I'm not the best videographer.

It was fun and the 20 year old Casita treated us good. Some zip ties and duct tape make me feel like I'm on vacation.
