Default summit lakes snow run

Last Sunday we took a little snow run up to the Summit lakes trail head just to see how far we could get. Along with myself and my son David in the orange flatty we had Jim and sherry in the silver cj and Jacob and Brad in the black rubi. Jacob just can seem to get enough wheeling as he was on the big run at Whatcom co. the day before. The guys a wheeling machine We started out heading up the Carbon river road and crossing the river on the longggg bridge. headed up the 7018 from there. just befor the Y to Coplay lake we found this white stock jeep in way over his head (and alone) We got him turned around and poitet back down the hill and then went on our way taking turns busting the fresh powder. The snow at the Y was about 18" deep and by the time we got to the top at the trailhead it was about 3' to 4' deep. Had a great day with great people and seen some awsome views. Heres a few of my pics. I will post a couple of vids later and more pics when I get them from david. Im sure Jacob has a few as well.

Playing with the front dig feature. Sure makes it easy to turn around in tight spots.

I enjoyed the conversation Brad. We will definitely do a lot more wheeling. I have a pile of parts in the garage so we will probably finish Jeeps about the same time.

When I get done it will be time for more snow wheeling. So make sure to bring enough warmers for both of us next time.
