We will jump right into the adventure, meeting at a trailhead and hoping into my Side by Side (SxS). I will drive as we embark on an epic 4x4'ing mountain adventure. During the adventure, you will take in the rugged Rocky Mountain landscapes of Colorado by 4x4'ing past majestic waterfalls, crossing streams and stopping for rest and reflection at an alpine mountain lake, perhaps throw a line for some trout fishing. We will navigate through some 150 year old Colorado mining town history sprinkled throughout the San Juans (also known as ghost towns). We will eat a grab n go, lunch in a mountain meadow and see the lush alpine tundra. The crescendo of the 4x4'ing adventure is the mountain top experience encountering at least one of the seven breath taking mountain passes in the alpine loop, these stunning mountain passes include Imogene, Corkscrew, Black Bear, Cinnamon, Engineer, Stony, Hurricane or California pass. Seasonally I may tailor the adventure towards mountain flowers or fall colors.

Good Base Layer
Colorado mountain weather is extreme, I have seen temperatures drop 30 degrees in thirty minutes. I have seen snow showers on mountain passes in June, July and August. Reminder, if town has a high of 80's, the mountain pass could be 25 to 30 degrees cooler so might only be 50 degrees.
