I ran Ruby Jean through the local car wash after the Jamboree. This is how she came out.
After a challenging day on Stinger, we decided to shift gears (ha!) and try Grafton, a more relaxed, scenic trail. This trail attracted a much larger group (see photo above) and included several stock Jeeps.
Every year Jeep owners from around the country gather for a weekend of off-road adventure in the backwoods of Maine. This year, Ruby Jean wanted to join them.
The night before we hit the first trails, more than 180 Jeeps took over the town common of Bethel, Maine. Some were stock, others heavily modified. Some were as old as 1947.
Our morning began with a brisk walk out to Green Point. As always, the weather and landscape conspired to present a dramatic display.
Our longest day of driving yet, making our way back to the western coast and beautiful Gros Morne.
After a quick stop at the Manna European Bakery and Deli to pick up a couple of delicious lunch sandwiches….
In addition to being a beautiful city, St. John’s is a wealth of fun activities and wonderful restaurants.
It’s pretty clear that Western Newfoundland’s mix of ocean and dramatic features makes for fantastic sunrises with awesome cloud formations.
Today started with a drive south to beautiful Woody Point.
