Buena Vista scenic trip

Early in the summer i made the trip up with the A2 crew to run Carnage at Buena Vista. Had a blast,but swore to return with my wife to enjoy the scenery a bit more.
A little over a month after my first trip i met that goal and met some "jeepn" friends for a weekend of trail riding.
Jeepsquared & a gal pal along with another ill just call "Big Red" & his wife were both in jeeps,myself being the lone yota this trip out.

Our first day we hit Chinamans Gulch. While a good bit longer than carnage,not near as difficult. Chinamans is in the same ohv area as carnage,and it drove me nuts not being able to go Rd2 with such a awesome trail.
I found a few areas to play,and even managed to get the jeep guys a little excited on a few places. Note to self:Yota lines dont work so well for jeeps.

Day 2

After a trouble free day one we went for a bit more altitude on day two. We hit two trails both went about 12,000'. To my suprise my lil 22r did just fine,even past the timberline where i had NO air for myself the lil toy found just enuff air to chug along.

The first trail was Iron Chest Mine. It had a nice little rock garden for the first 1/3 of the trail. There also were several places where one mistake ment a long fall to the bottom. But the scenery was worth any gray hairs aquired on the drive up.



Jeepsquared was feeling full of energy and decided to "run" up the rest of the way past the mine to the peak. From there he took some real nice pics too.

Grizzly Lake

After eating lunch up at the mine & a quick drive down we decided Grizzly Lake would make a good afternoon trail.
The first part of the trail was the most difficult,but nothing impossible. Dont know how,but i didnt get any pics of the lake.

That is truly a great area. Where did you camp for this trip?

We have thought about camping at the trailhead to Carnage/Chinaman's Gulch, but not sure how the shooting would go over w/ the 'neighbors'.

I stayed at the Alpine Lodge,about 1 mile from the trailhead. Wasnt great,but it was close and they were "wheeler" friendly.

Id think shooting at carnage/chinamans would be a big no-no. Im pretty sure its right next to Colorado State Prison land??

Ed Zachary.....

We think we might have found a spot to camp not far from the trailhead, but no one has been back there to check it out yet. Maybe I can take some time off in 2012 and make it back up there. The spot we camped at in 08 was a great place, but it took 20 minutes of driving on the twisted *** dirt roads to get to it w/ the trailers. (I might be able to get mine streetable enough to be able to leave the trailer at camp one of these days )

Nice Pics can't wait to get up there this summer.

Could a lifted TJ on 33's open front and rear make it through grizzly lake.

This would be the weakest member of our group.

Grizzly Lake shouldnt be any problem. A few hard spots may need a strap or winch.
Take a camera,youll find plenty of stuff youll want to remember forever.
