I need to get out every opportunity I have before the snow puts an end to the season. Tried to do Kingston peak today and couldn't go down the other side because several parts of the road have over 3 feet of snow. Guess it will be snowcat season soon.

Sweet. I'm in the same boat. Trying to get as many miles on the moto that I can. I've put on 200kms in the past 2 weeks. Just bought a new helmet to match.

Doc, the pictures are of the James Peak Wilderness area "my back yard". James peak is in the first picture on the right. Both pictures are taken from Kingston peak road "usfs 353.1".

The sun came back out after a few snow storms made it seem like the 4x4 season was over. I went out by my house for a couple of hours, probably got about 30 miles. Played on a couple of rocks and got my feet wet.Name:  IMG_20171015_151840_hdr.jpg

I have been waiting for snow and backcountry ski season to start. Today I ran out of patience and decided to bundle up and 4x4 until I got hyperthermic. Hopefully the high pressure goes away and the Jetstream dips down to Colorado and delivers some snow.

Looks like 4x4 season has kinda started. Came across a guy with a 800cc on its side. He had his winch all rigged up to roll himself over. I said hold on and pushed him back on his tires. Name:  IMG_20180508_163421_hdr.jpg

Went for a trip in the Polaris in the Yankee hill area. It was a good long day. Did some rock crawling and snow drift bashing. Best part is a road called miners gulch. Fairly difficult rock sections and this time of year it's also a creek. About half way down we came across a big section of ice with flowing water underneath. Name:  Utv.jpg

Ended up helping a few people get back on the road and going again. Of the three people forum8fox and I helped this guy was in the worst situation. I can't pull on anything this heavy with my UTV so we just helped with the rigging. Name:  IMG_20180527_154913.jpg

The Colorado cat crew got together for a summer outing. We did a lot of 4x4, I logged just over 70miles on my UTV. We tried to get up to Crescent Lake but only one vehicle made it the whole way. Our camp site was nice and we woke up to several cows talking to each other. It was great to see everyone.

Awesome pics. I would love to do some 4 wheeling in your neck of the woods. I will have to upgrade my tires in the not to distant future. What kind of tires are you running? What size are they?

You would definitely enjoy it if you did make the trip out. Lots of fun to be had. Let me know if you do and want someone to join in the fun. I run 30" tensor regulators on a 14" rim. I am pretty sure they are DOT approved. I like them a lot, they are good in rocks, mud, sand, and very stable at high speeds. https://tensortire.com/products/the-regulator

Did a 4x4 and hike combo trip earlier this week. Drove from the house to Loch Lomond. Then hiked up Bancroft, a 13000ft mountain. It was a great day, the visibility is bad from California wildfire smoke.
This is a picture from the top of Bancroft looking at Ice lake and James peak.

This picture is also from the top. The lake on the right is lake Caroline. Loch Lomond is on the left, you can see a little bit of Reynolds lake at the bottom of Loch Lomond. I am parked by Loch Lomond.
