some randoms on our way to and up the water fall. we didnt go all the way to upper hut...just turned around after the corner after the waterfall. graham got in a bit of a pinch around the bend almost rubbing passenger--err drivers side doors with the wall, but was able to sort himself out unscathed. levi was in front and walked it no issues...i followed his line drama free.

Wow what a difference from 3 weeks ago when we went. No snow anywhere. Nice pics. Was up at clear creek today with the Hundy and we had the same kind of weather. Sun, rain, snow, sun, hail, sleet, sun. It was interesting.

Very nice guys. Just couldn't get off the couch today to join up.

Can't believe it's pretty much snowing in Vancouver right now!

Great pics guys!

This should go with that XJ VS LC 80 debate earlier, looks like both did pretty good.
I think the XJ definitely outwheeled the 80s, but between Sonny's leather seats and grahams stock cooler/freezer between the seats I think we out classed them.

I was worried through that beginning section with the snow as my 6700lb school bus likes to slide to the lowest spot like a curling rock but I did ok and it definitely added some excitement. On the way out Levi crawled up and out with out spinning a tire, Sonny finessed it up with style, working the brake to stop spinning, Graham had a little more difficulty till the right line was found and I matted it like a drunk fool. My 80 is going to go on a bit of a diet in the next year to make room for some sliders and skid plates.
