Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?

Here are a few pics. The camp, Lake and his "house", The view at sunset from camp. We followed Mike into Toroweap expecting the road to be nasty. The road was flat and smooth up until the last 10 miles. On our way out we were able to travel at 45 to 50 mph. Aired down to 40# made it a comfortable ride. Days were hot, near 100 but the nights were wonderful. It's a dusty place but the dust is so fine you don't notice it until you touch a flat surface. This was our first trip with an SMB group. I have to say my wife was was very patient with all of the "truck talk". It would have been nice to have a few more women in the group but after hanging out with Steve and Rob and Mike and Mac I can see why the wives stayed home!!!! Ha Ha.

When I got my camera out of the van, I noticed I had taken some photos. So, I added them to my trip report above.

Mac,

I would like to see your pictures, but I'm not going to join Facebook just to see them. Can you upload them to this site?

Mike

Re: Get Together Vegas/Southern Utah in Sept(TRIP REPORT posted)

Mike,

I uploaded my pictures to "My Gallery" on my profile and also put them in the "Galleries" section. I tried uploading some pictures here but it said my files were too large. Don't know why the difference. I will keep playing with it and try to figure it out.

Thanks,

Mac

Mac,

Great pictures. Thanks for posting them here.

It appears you laid down and took the shot over the edge.

Mike
