That's why I don't bring a camera.

The thought of Panhead in a thong is going to take awhile to get out of my head For anyone interested, the Dusy Ershim is a fantastic trail.

Stay away from that tree. It looks like the easier line, but the rocks will slide your Jeep right into it.

It's been two years, but I believe that tree is in the middle of a bend on Thompson hill. In any event, its a steep section with large boulders. Since you will be going downhill, it should be easier for you and Panhead to avoid. The tree is totally dead and is missing a lot of its bark as you can see in the picture. Keep it on your driver side and go far right and you should be fine. The two pictures with the blue Jeep are at the North end gatekeeper. You'll hit that spot about a quarter mile in. It was a bitch going down and should be even more challenging going up. If you can make it past there, then you should be able to make it past any of the other obstacles. Did I mention that there are a lot of obstacles. Wish I could join you, but I just got back from a 2,300 mile trip to Oregon. Have a great time.

Note: The last picture shows the sign at the North end of the trail.
