Awesome time you two had there. Yup Lippencott and Saline will rattle your teeth loose, not to mention everything else Broke some stuff on my bike too in that area. Come out South Pass Shake-rattle and Roll No wonder the trailer looked that way.

This kind of looked like section of Lippencott


Didn't get up to the Dunes and Hot springs this time round maybe another time.

OH! and since you've tasted the Orange........ Done!

Thanks for posting up.

Pretty sure this was on our way up to the snow flake mine. That road/trail made Lippencott feel like a super highway. Always fun to check out a sweet corner of the world for the first time!! Already trying to figure out how to get back down there.

Hot Springs

This is my most favorite spot on the planet. I have been going for decades. Found it by accident in the mid 80's.

There isn't a day go by that I do not dream of being there

Great trip,
I know it was fun.
Thanks for the report.
This area is very far away for me
but I will keep my options open.
One day I hope.

This is awesome! I was down in the valley last week for the first time and didn't see any of the same stuff you did. What a great area to explore.

I'm impressed you drove out South Pass with the trailer, there were some parts that looked like they'd be tough in a four wheel vehicle.

Yea. South Pass was slow, especially with the trailer slowly disintegrating, but we had not been out that way, and wanted to see something new. A little tedious, but still fun.

Ya and it's always nice to find the weak points on any system so they can be beefed up. In the process of collecting materials for some repairs and modifications. Will post a few pics when she's back in action.
