President's Day II

After we packed it in, we headed off to do some light four-wheeling with the Jimmy. Sadly, that idea didn't pan out. As we went on, the steering only got worse and worse. It was to point we couldn't turn right. We had a to drive in reverse to get back to the main trail. We left and headed straight for the repair shop. We dropped it off, then piled into the Suburban. We opted to make the most of what was left of the day and we did a couple trails near the mines. They offer beautiful views of the city.

After taking in the views, we went to check out the old mine caves.

It wasn't the day we anticipated, but it was a good time. It was nice to get back out to the desert. I missed it.

The Jimmy's latest issue is the gear box. It's less than two years old and we already wore it out. That's being replaced along with the pittman arm. After these repairs we should be in good shape for another run. A successful one, I hope.
