Hmmm....I saw mountain goats in that exact same place last time I was there... Really not too concerned about people, i seemed. They didn't look as mangy back then, though...

Great pics! I wish I could have made it. Damn leaf springs...

Good run, I'd do it again.

For those of you keeping score we ran (according to the charles wells guide):
Red Cone
Webster pass
Radical Hill
Middle Swan River
Saints John

It was good to meet FJ80, Luni and his wife(who were out from Kansas on vacation).

Here's some of my pix

Got home at 1530 today. Crashed in a hotel last night. A shower and a real bed was awesome.

Been following this thread on the laptop and we've finally got the pictures from the trip photobucketed from the home computer.

We had an awesome time and definitely appreciate all the help putting the trip together and the trail run down a couple more challenging trails on our last day. If you guys find yourselves in NC and need a couch to crash on or some trails to wheel down be sure to look me up.

The switch backs going up to Webster Pass are sketchy right now. It's the reason the trail is closed and its tight, then there's the washouts. I had less feelings of impending doom on Red Cone. Yay Red Cone!

Actually luni was challenging a couple of them. I was kind of hoping that one would ram my truck, that would be a cool dent to have.

I couldn't believe how close they let us get.

Nothing on it was bad at all. I think steep descents are more interesting in jeeps though, and that is what the people who do most of the guides drive.

Maybe some people have been feeding them.

I would think if one attacked your truck you would have 2 holes rather than a dent. :D

Yeah, if they can keep it one way it should stay intact, but oddly enough one of the ATV folks we ran into was making a joke about running it backwards and that he would take the ticket if the ranger could catch him...

They removed the washboards a few years ago, after frequent "accidents". Now the descent really isn't a big deal. Back in the day, it was relatively intimdating, though.

too...? You weren't with me on Red Cone... and as Lion's Back goes I didn't scream until my truck was firmly planted nose first into the sand... and that was more of a I really wanted to shoot something so the next best alternative was a short scream followed by almost killing Lindsay with a flying pry bar :(

Yeah... I wasn't real happy. Vertigo sucks to have, especially as bad as I do. And the difference between that and cliff diving... well cliff diving only lasts a split second, and the adrenaline rush out weighs the fear only because... well... how much thinking can you do in a blink of an eye LOL

Anyhow, could of been a lot worse... ever see the video of the guy who taped himself doing Lion's Back... between the hyper ventilating and calling himself stupid several hundred times, it was rather entertaining! :p
