Golden Gate Canyon is just beautiful, used to have a friend that lived in the state park up there. Made that drive many times, some good wheeling around that area and up near the peak-to-peak/Rollins pass. If it means anything I have a solid wet 6-7" so far and still snowing...and Golden Gate always gets twice as much as my house. Though this snow is impeding my ability to get the IAC rigged/fixed/replaced on the lifted rig (GOD I need a garage!).
Anyways some snow pics from this morning while working my a** off shoveling for my wife (who decided not to go anywhere after I did all the brushing off/shoveling).

And my Roo dog who was helping me this morning...

Going to try and get the lifted rig to cooperate but not going to hit the JY's in this weather just to get a replacement IAC. I don't have snow tires either but sure my M/T's will do just fine :rolleyes:.

I will try to make it out there with the plus one, Shawn. Not sure if the Colonel is up to the task with his overheating/underheating issues, but meh... :headbang:

Doesn't look like I'm going to make it either, they cut my vacation short and am working right now. Looks like it I will be working tomorrow also unless we somehow get done tonight. :mad: I was ready to go rock it after my earlier fun trip this week.

Im home and I had a lot of fun. Thanks to Jeffast, Yetidon and Teresa for coming out. It was snowing in Golden when we left Sonic and we found lots of places in the hills where it wasn't snowing which I found funny but there was plenty already up there.

My favorite picture of the day has the hatch and the plus one outback on 3 wheels.

There'll be another time this year for sure. You coming next time?

On the way back down from Nederland we found more snow:

This is when Shawn pulled out in front of us, nearly T-boning himself.

*These pics and post brought to you by Teresa, since Yeti doesn't know how to work the camera.* That was fun, guys! Most of it would've been perfectly suitable for a regular Ru like my LGT.... except without all those deep-snow shenanigans. :-)

Looks like fun. I should've come I guess. I was just driving around in the snow here in Ward, but forgot that yesterday was the day. I would have especially liked to see the side by side comparison in performance between the old dual range and the new outback, since I'm a dual range fan, but I have seen the outbacks do some amazing stuff in snow sometimes that I don't know if my GL could have handled.

looks like you guys had fun. I did a xmas tree run a few years ago with Mudrat but that was before all of his wrong doings I guess. Now THAT was fun! Wish I coulda made it but with the temps being as bad as they've been and me being awful sick, not a good combo to do an engine swap:-\

Sorry I couldn't make it Shawn -- The gig went late, hardly any sleep and I had to prep for a trip (of all places) to see relatives in Hawaii -- just got back. Really would've liked to romp around in the snow with you guys.
