Talking Back from a long trip...Some Photos

We spent the last week in the Rockies looking at houses and just Jeepin around some, we had a blast. With this forum in mind, I decided to take a lot of Jeep photos, despite all the eye rolling from the female along for the ride.

I'm sitting at 5500 miles now and it has been flawless, I really love this ride, and sure hope it keeps on truckin' for a long time.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Sunrise in the TX panhandle. Does anyone on the forum live there? I don't know how you deal with the smell of cow shit all the time.



Are we there yet?



We parked here to do some hiking (Woodland Park, before the snow came).



I had to jack it up to get up here, still rubbed a little.



We found a quiet spot to enjoy the fresh air. Beginning to wonder if she'll ever exit the Jeep?






This was the evening before the snow came last week in the Rockies, last shot before it was covered with muck.



It looked like this the rest of the trip, I don't think all the snow came out of the wheel wells until somewhere around Amarillo, several days later.



We made it up the steep driveway behind me there to the right, It had about 6" on it or so, and was very steep near the top. My realtor only made it half way up in her Pathfinder.



I think my Jeep feels much more at home here than on the Texas plains.









I'll also just add, remote start is a nice thing to have when it's -5 out in the morning. And the heated steering wheel helped me get the feeling back in my hands after washing the windshield at a service station.

ETA: I think snow mode is fantastic. Several times when starting out I forgot to change into it, and I could tell immediately that I forgot, a lot of slipping around. Once enabled, it crawls around corners with hardly any slipping around, even on the stock Forteras. On snow tires, I guess it would be unstoppable on snow.



Cheers,
NB

Re: Back from a long trip...Some Photos

That photo of Garden of the Gods is spectacular.

Well, all of your photos are spectacular, as always.

Hope you make it to CO, you'll likely never leave if you do.

Cheers

Re: Back from a long trip...Some Photos

^^Excellent travelogue and fantastic pics. I have endured the same eye-rolling from my family when I do these photo ops featuring the new toy. They need to get over themselves and let the old man have his fun.
