I was gonna guess Black Bear Pass, then I saw the sign in the one pic. "To Hell You Ride" in the distance is a bit of a dead giveaway, too. How much of your seat did you suck up your butt? That one is on my bucket list. Very jealous!

OK - that approach looks insane. Is it that bad in real life?

Black Bear is now my favorite trail EVER! Make plans and do it. I'm really surprised they still let the general public drive this road. Not much seat suckage actually...

The picture is a little distorted and taken from the passenger seat, but yeah, that one is an attention getter. I had to make a three point turn at that spot, I don't think any Jeep could do it in one shot. The stairs are actually a bit scarier. I don't have a good pic of those...

About halfway down my daughter let out a "Oh wow!" I thought she saw something cool. Then she said "I have wi-fi!" as she messed with her phone...

Ok, I just have to post up that Adams drive shaft is a great company with a kick ass owner. They are replacing my shaft for free sight unseen, even the shipping both ways (I live in Alaska, this is significant), sending it to me before they get the old one back, giving me some free t-shirts and hooking me up with a mad discount on my new front shaft im ordering from them. Go James from Adams!
