TC, Walt (Jeepnut) and I (Blkruby) Decided to play around in the Draw again this week . This time the upper Draw. TC wanted to see if he could float.

But the water kept getting deeper.

So he backed out.

Moving up the trail with wet tires and mud grip was hard to come by.

He kept trying but kept slipping off.

That line that you mention, I have done it I think 2 or three times. I end up climbing that big rock on the right, its just a straight up climb of about 3-4 feet for your right front tire. I did it just this past weekend.

Have you guys gone further then this up the trail?

After the next crossing of the road, the trail gets bigger and better. There are some pretty big rock and ledges. The is one spot that has 2 ledges in a row each one about as big as the filter. There are also just piles of rocks that are at least 3 feet each.

I have only gone about 3 more road crossings down from where these pics were taken, but I really want to run upper far down and see what it does.

We didn't go all the way through due to time, stopped at the large boulder field. We have run it all the way through before, it eventually intersects the 433 road. There's a couple of decent obstacles past the 433, but that pretty much is the end. It's a fun trail if you have the time!

Here's a couple more pics:

TC from the front, water kicked up from the fan was actually pouring out over his fender:

Yea! Kevin we went up and took a look at the big rock field but decided not to run it cause my brakes weren't working right. I didn't have enough brake fluid to bleed them out on the trail.

10 pounds in those tires wasn't enough to float it? :dizzy2:
