Ryan,

I have been calling that the Whalebones since DOT cut that big tree last year. Bronco rock, Cruiser Rock Jeep rock, I think it has gotten all of us LOL

I looked for a picture but I am not sure I have one with no snow on it. Except this one from FOTR in 2002.

Rusty, Rany and I cleared all that brush to open that part of the trail back in 02.


I have always known the wentworth trail as "First Blood", thats what the old timers called it when my Dad and I started running the trail in the early 80's.





Bronco Rock is a large boulder that you dropoff before dropping into the Old Sluice. An EB burned to the ground on that rock many years ago.

Full size picture is 16000X3200 pixels, roughly 250MB in size

That's the one also known as Chappie Rock

There's a rock just before the main trail meets up with the Old Sluice trail as you are headed to Buck that I have heard called Egg Rock. It looks like an egg laying on its side.

Also, the rock ledges just below the roots section on Cadillac Hill is known as Locker Rock. Most rigs bypass that one now though.

Stunning.
D'ya wanna go in on a short run of those for wall-hanging? I have a 10' wall that is begging for that image... come to think of it, it would look GREAT with Curly's picture on the opposite side of the room. What say, gents?

Yeah, I'd love to print it too. The one of the bowl is a great picture too.

I have the fullsize of mine. I just dont have the ability to print it. If I were to have someone print it, I'd have to give them a disc because the file is just dummy huge

Phil, I'll work on this after Cantina, but I'm pretty ready to throw some money at this, and it only gets cheaper the more that are printed. I'm booked insanely tight through Trek weekend, and then have a bit of a breather before Cantina, but dare not take anything extra on before I deliver some stuff for Cantina...

I'll be in touch with you and Tim to start begging for art in September, I can think of few things better to hang on my office wall, to keep my head in the game.

Only that it looks like we are not going to have it done before Cantina.
