Biscuit and I were treated to a great afternoon of trail Jeeping in the hills and backwoods overlooking Sugarloaf.  With old friend Jim Gruber, we drove on trails camouflaged by Mother Nature and around many of the trees fallen by the straight winds of last summers Aug 2nd.

Outstanding! There’s nothing like riding on unpaved summer roads in a Jeep TDDO… Top Down Doors Off!

Regarding the 1st picture overlooking the water, is it possible to start giving a small explanation of where the picture was taken and what we are looking at. I can tell that you were on a bluff overlooking some body of water with a mountain range in the background. For those of us who have never been to the Leland area, it would allow us to build a mental map of the area.
Also, how old is Biscuit? I believe that he is starting to show his age. Wonderful looking dog!

He states that it is the hills and backwoods of Sugarloaf, which is a closed ski resort.

We are looking over Lime Lake with Sugarloaf Mountain in the background. About 8 miles south of Leland

Keith, you have a nicer looking Jeep.
His does look like a good restoration, though.
