WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FOR THIS ADVENTURE.
2022 Morrison Adventure
Thursday Aug 11 – Sunday Aug 14
The Morrison Adventure is a 4-day, Thursday through Sunday adventure. We will meet in Cody, Wyoming on Wednesday, August 10th at 5:00 PM for a driver’s meeting, where we will introduce everyone, get acquainted and do tech inspections.
The Morrison Jeep Trail is an iconic 4×4 trail that should be on your bucket list…if you can stomach a very narrow shelf road and the 28 switchbacks (or so depending on what you count) to get to the panoramic views at the top. This trail is for advanced drivers only – trailers are not welcome, once you start the climb up the switchbacks – there is nowhere to turn back. Most of the switchbacks are multiple point turns for anything but very short wheelbase rigs. You will be off-camber while climbing – there is no room for error, no winch points if you get into trouble and you can literally hear the edges of the cliff crumbling away as you drive in some areas.
Our adventure begins in the northern Wyoming town of Cody. Cody was founded by Colonel William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody, who passed through the region in the 1870s. Please arrive early if you plan to explore this historic city, being as its 53 miles from Yellowstone National Park there are many great sites to see. Thursday morning will lead us out of town and to the trailhead, where we will embark on an epic journey along the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone river, up and over the Morrison and into the high country of Wyoming and Montana. After we finish the Morrison we have a a few road miles to go to the East into the Pryor Mountains where we will spend the next time exploring. We will break camp on Sunday morning and work our way towards Lovell WY where we again meet pavement for the journey home.
