This was back in October of '14. had issues with my laptop so I wasn't able to upload anything till now...

Our club planned on a Rocks and Valleys the weekend after our Color Tour. I'll give a small run down of the park. ITS SMALL!!! lol You could pretty much spend a whole day there and do everything if you have a capable but small rig. I had to skip a couple of trails cause they were really tight and I knew I was going to have problems. The park is marked by Green, Blue, and Black Diamonds. Green is easy Blue is intermediate and Black is obviously hard. Some of the blue trails we wheeled on we really easy like 2wd easy.... Then some of the Black trails were like a Blue trail but more of a challenge.

I was the only one taking pictures and video... so needless to say on some of the good trails no one got video of me :wallbash: One trail still sticks out in my mind, I told them take my camera and record this cause its going to be good footage, and neither one took the camera....

Only incident I had that day was low oil pressure same thing v7Guy had. Going up a hill Low Oil Pressure came on put it in reverse and backed down the hill. This was the hill I wanted them to record me on...

I'm still uploading videos I'll post them when they are done.

Looks like fun trip, indeed. Looks like the Jeep doesn't know how to NOT flex...
