    Cool Pancake Rock Sunset Run

    To help make our early Sunday morning meet up at Corral Canyon a bit easier for us, Cindy and I headed out to Alpine the day before and just stay the night there. Being that we were able to get out sooner than planned, we decided to do a quick sunset run up to Pancake Rock and were lucky enough to have Moochie and Adam join us as well. Here are some shots from our sunset run.

    Airing down before our climb up to the top...


    For those of you who haven't been on this trail before, the deep ruts start up just beyond the gate...




    For the most part, the trail is easy but, when you're in a bone stock 2-door with no rocker guards, a little more care is needed if you don't want to do any damage to your rocker panels...


    Thanks to all the ruts, there are a lot of places where you can get twisted up...




    Of course, when you're this narrow and small, you can just wiggle your way through everything...




    In addition to the ruts, there are a few rocks that you can play on too...




    Or, make the wise decision to skirt around them...

    Adam making short change of it too...


    Continuing our way up...








    Almost to the top...

    Up on top of Pancake Rock...




    Here comes the rest of the gang...

    Neat boulders up on top...


    View looking out toward the ocean...


    Time to head back down...








    Heading out to the play area, the trail became challenging enough for a stock 2-door without rocker guards that we decided to play it safe and turn around...


    Moby coming back up...






    The night creeping in...


    Off the trail and airing up...


    HONEY TIME!!


    Adam is a Honey Virgin no more...

    Adam did a good job of missing most of the rocks. He had to snake his way through some big ruts.

    Looks like you all had a blast!

    Not sure if I'm more jealous of missing the run or the chance to remove my own "honey virgin" label. Next time count me in and I'll see if the wife can whip up some cookies to go with the honey.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Yup just took a little more thought and time to get through it for me. I need lift and rocker guards bad!

    Had a great time! Thanks for the invite Eddie and Cindy!
