Scott Frary warned us ahead of time that Wednesday would be "tight tree day." The plan was to do the Rim Rock area including the Lower Pucker Ridge and Leaning Tree trails. Removing tops and windshields was highly recommended. The Lower Pucker Ridge trail climbed quickly up through stands of dead forest, making for a stark contrast to the colorful Jeeps winding their way through the gray surroundings. Tom Wood of driveshaft fame leads part of the gang upwards.
