Went up to Wheelers Pass today with my dad and dog.. Well, almost to there. Hit snow, which wasnt a big deal, but it was melting and starting to ice, so had to turn around maybe 1/2 mile from the summit. Oh well, maybe next time
It was washed out a lot from the recent rainfall we've had, so it definitely pushed the Patriot to it's limits.
Ran into a couple guys up there, one was with his SO in their Suburban, the other guy was in his stock Wrangler. Suburban turned around after getting stuck in a snow drift, Wrangler and I kept going until the snow was glazing over
This was me after I made it past the drift that got the Suburban. Have a video of it, not sure if you can put vids on here though. What you cant see is that where most of these pics were taken, the trail was at about a 10 degree incline
Was a fun trip though. Left with brand new desert pinstriping, mud on the new tires, and my skeptical father thoroughly impressed with the offroad prowess of the Jeep Patriot
