First off-road with the Rover

The trip is not that far from home, about 30 mins, but close enough if needed I could get some assistance 😉 if you know what I mean.  The trail’s name is Saran Wrap – for good reason, as it is rocky and vehicles sometimes end up ‘wrapped’ around the rocks.  (trail description)

Well for me, it is a group event where we can get out to the ‘hard to reach’ areas and enjoy nature… usually the excursions we plan include a hike or at the least a destination with a spectacular view.  One thing to note – we fully support the Tread Lightly initiative.

Now the Rover being a 12 yr old vehicle, I was not sure how it would do – even though it has a pedigree of greatness in off roading.  The Rover surprised me and performed well and easily handled a difficult trail with no problems.  Also my boys had a fantastic time… double win for me!

I have to say this was the first times getting out – so a bit nervous, but in the end it was exhilarating.  I would say it was the spring board that pushed me to get out more…

The views of the Front Range – well see for yourself:

Amazing!! Would you not say?

At the end of the day, we all had fun and enjoyed some of the great Colorado outdoors.  At this point I thought to myself “I must get out and do more!”
