Playing in Canyonlands

Hey guys, thought I'd share some pics from a recent trip to Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Highlight of the park was definitely Shafer Trail, an old mining road carved into the hillside. Evoque handled everything with ease. Nothing overly technical, but loads of fun nonetheless. Highly recommended if anyone is ever in the area.

RE: Playing in Canyonlands

Picture 3 gives a pretty awesome idea of how "big" the scenary is out there, makes the drive I'm doing over the North East Shoulder of Ben Lomond on Sunday look like a drive over a pimple! Here is a Disco3 coming back up the track from Loch Lomond's east shore to 2/3rd of the way up Ben Lomond - 2nd highest mountain in Scotland.

and a wee video of going down - this is a "there and back" run so we had to drive back up the same track to get out!

If the rain stops and the track dries out somewhat in the next 24 hours I will be taking the Evoque, if not then it will have to be the Defender on Mud Terrains and with the winch ready to rescue stranded Freelanders!

Great photos, not sure I would be brave enough to drive it though, without guard rails.

Brilliant, I could only echo what has already been said.
