Having Fun

You don't have to be a tour operator to drive on these jeep roads. We saw several other jeeps. My wife was standing close to this vehicle's path. She reported the driver had a huge smile on his face. The lady passenger not so much.

My husband also has a big smile on his face when he puts it into 4-wheeldrive :) A beautiful environment for a drive through nature with the mountains in the background!

Yes, when bouncing and rocking along on uneven ground, the passengers don't nearly have the fun that the drivers (who have the steering wheel to hang onto) do! At the end of the ride, the votes are cast and normally they are 50-50. Great descriptive shot Steve ;-)
