Default Argentine 6/10/2013

So my brother-in-law and I headed up argentine yesterday on a whim. It was gorgeous up there and it was nice getting out of the 99* weather for the day.

We picked up a bit of trash and it is in need of our upcoming clean.

We made it all the way up to the mine via the low road and on our way down took the high road. We encountered a bit of snow, but not bad.

Looks like this trail is gonna be a good one to have the GoPro mounted and rolling.

I take it you guys didn't have any trouble with the crossings?

Your truck will have no problem with either- they're to the top of your tires at the deepest spot, just enough for a good splash and a nice pic.

Sounds good. My truck could use a wash anyways.

Interesting. So the snow was on the upper road but not the lower road? Looks like this would have been a fun weekend to get up there with the water crossings!

It was definitely deeper than I've ever crossed in up there. Up to my headlights for a sec. it was a blast and no problems.

I've had it for a while. With my red one stolen I drive it all the time now.
