Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
So I just got back from my 2600 mile adventure through 5 National Parks (CRNP, GTNP, YNP, BCNP, ZNP). If only I could have gotten some of the epic shots I had with the wildlife and my Jeep. Enjoy!

You should start a thread and report out about the trip with plenty of pictures so we can all enjoy it with you. These shots must just be a teaser......

I want to do the full Traverse so bad! I never seem to have the time for it though. It's like 166 off-road miles in all right?
I'm pretty sure you're right on that. We ran a modified 1 day version of it from Jerome to Williams, wrapping in Sycamore Point and it made for a great weekend trip!

There's a current closure on the Great Western Trail portion of Old 354 just south of Williams. Our group discovered a massive washout that is impassable. Forest Service says it'll be closed for about 1-2 years, which sucks. You can bypass it by skipping Old 354 and using Jerome-Perkinsville Road into Williams.

(BTW, if you're local to AZ, you should check out Offroad Passport. Wonderful group of people doing day runs and overland-style trips on the regular.) We've also got a FB group.

Thank you for the info, this is high on the to-do list. I am in Gilbert so I'll check out that group for sure!

Retired and loving it.
Did you get lightheaded on the way up to the telescope? I've heard of that happening due to the altitude change.
No, but it could easily happen. We were warned to stop at the snack / rest area on the way up to acclimate to the altitude and it helped. (Sorry I'm so late to reply to your question.)

That first picture you posted is the reason I want to do Black Bear Pass.....ironically, it's also the reason I probably never will 😄 that's a long way down.

Great pictures!
The weather was great. The trail at the steps was dry and had good grip. There was water and ice higher up, but wasn't a problem. It was awesome. Go with someone you trust Jeeping with and you'll have a blast.

LOL, well post up more pics in the future. Looks like an incredible area. Heading to Lead Queen Mountain near Radium BC tomorrow. Not a challenging trail, but the views should be great. Snow will be closing the trails soon so want to get out as much as I can.
