I have two picture formats here, so bare with me as the page loads. The small pictures will turn into a pop up window containing a 640x480 photo. If you'd like to see the same picture in a 1024x768 format, you will find the links below.
Pictures are a little dark, as it was very overcast up there.
I also had snow and rain on the lens which doesn't make for the clearest pictures.

The videos are best viewed if you right click the link and save it to your desktop. If you merely click on the link, it will play, but it can be choppy, and some parts may not play at all.

Summery of trip
Had a very good time, and only a few stucks. The stucks were mostly from the snow being very deep in places, and very soft.
You sink right to the bottom in the stuff.

Mike with the blue '95 Ford Explorer was going to meet some friends of his from work at the Safeway where we were meeting.
They did not show up, ao he came along with us.
Glad he could join us, we all had a great time.
Turned out I know Mike from work too.

I am very impressed with the capability of our Toyota's up there in the snow.  I had to take a double take when I saw Billy's rig. Same color as mine, but his sits a few inches higher than mine with his lift kit.

Looking forward to getting up there again, and explore some more.
I think we may even give the Naches trail a run to after the snow melts from it.

Important info:
We had a few situations where rigs were totally stuck, and driving only made it worse trying to get out.
Several had snatch straps and shovels with them, and these two items were used to free up the stuck rigs.
Never venture into snow country, or on any wheelin' trip without them.
They were a lifesaver for the trip.

Todd carries his shovel on his Yakima Load Warrior roof rack, and it came in very handy that day.
I think I will be adding one to my rack too.
