I did a long weekend to Eagle Creek to check out some old stopping grounds. The weeds were a little taller and thicker than expected, but passable. Fortunately, the water was low, so the crossings were easy. The area has rugged beauty, with deep canyons and some deep watering holes. I had to winch a large tree out of the way to continue the trail, which was fairly simple with the winch. The lift and 35" tires made traversing the terrain easier, but those darned sticks were relentless on the paint. I somehow managed to tweak the rear-passenger side bumper corner. You may see the tweaked bumper in some of the shots. I had to use two ratchet straps to twist the bumper back down just to get the tailgate to open up all the way. Guess it may be time for a beefier bumper.

Hope you all enjoy the 5 min video.

It looks nice and worth a visit,
can you be more specific on "Eagle Creek"?
There are "a few" eagle creeks on earth ;-)

Thanks
