Highlights

Highlight: Clear Lake Road
On the south-eastern side of Drummond Island, Clear Lake Road is a mild feeder trail into the system. This side of the island is saturated with water and while this trail doesn’t have any specific obstacles, the muddy and sometimes deep pits can be fun to splash through. New drivers to Drummond Island can get a good taste of some of the more difficult mud on the nearby Marblehead Loop by tackling Clear Lake Road first.

On our last day on Drummond we decided we wanted to take it easy since the previous days had really taken a toll on the Jeep (see the fact that a fender is missing in some of these photos). This wasn't too bad but did turn out to be a little more difficult than I thought it was going to be. The mud holes are just deep in some places and we chose bypasses more often than not this time around.

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ had to be traded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.
