Offroading a 2007 Outback -- pictures
Posted 14 July 2007 - 10:01 AM
I do have to say, I am very impressed with how well it handles on dirt roads -- just throw it into corners and hit the gas and it zooms right around. I thought my EA handled well, but the outback is FUN on the two lane dirt roads. I'm a little less impressed with the gas mileage -- 25mpg average for the trip, and I drove pretty conservatively on the highway. My old EA82 I can thrash on the highway and offroad, and still get more like 28. Guess having all that power does use gas...
The place I didn't quite have good enough approach or departure angles. Picture doesn't do it justice but look where the headlight reflections are in the creek.
The end of the road, looking up the valley at the divide with a very light dusting of new snow (it was light rain where I was). You can see the switchbacks below me.

Looking down the valley from the top. You can see the creek way down in the bottom.
Looking back up the valley on the way down -- the end of the road is about in the cloud on the left
