Nice, looks like you folks had a good time. Too bad about the 'widening' of the trail.
When I looked at your plans I was wondering if you were going to go down from the ridge on 4W671. You did. One of your pics just before you got to the bottom is where I camped once when I couldn't quite get up in my '97 XJ. But I did make it up a couple of years later in my '06 KJ. I chalk it up to the difference between using a standard vs. an automatic for climbing. Don't know how much fun it would be to go down that hill though.
