(A Colorado got stuck in the same place last time I was there, and it took two people daisy-chained together to get him out)

Body and suspension lifts with 265/65/17 BFG A/T KO’s work very well but costs too much fuel.
Driving through two-foot snow drifts was very easy.

Second trip to Haskell Lake (October 1 & 2, 2011)
Most of the off-road trails were blocked. :sadcry:
