Climbing at the Cultus Hole

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images Jeeping

Ron shared this classic jeeping picture. Thanks for sharing!

“Here’s an old picture from one of my jeeping trips, back in the day. This was in September of  1969. Pictured here is a friend of mine at a place called Cultus Hole, which is west of Yakima, Washington in the Cascade Mountains. He is now a rancher in the Columbia Basin and the last I heard he still has the Jeep sitting out by one of his barns, and he still fires it up occasionally and drives it around the ranch. It is a CJ3B of course, and I think it is a 1953 model, but I’m not positive on the year. The modifications on it were pretty standard for that era; a small block Chevrolet engine (283 cubic inches), an overdrive unit, a roll bar, and oversized tires and wheels are some of the things I remember, although I’m sure he had made many more modifications. The trips he and I made in our Jeeps were always memorable, to say the least.”

1968 New Mexico Jeep Trip

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Old Images Jeeping, Trips

The May 1968 issue of New Mexico Magazine has a good story and pictures on an annual jeep trip by the Las Cruces Four Wheelers and the Las Cruces Jeep Club. Fifty-five people in 17 four wheel drive vehicles, including at least one Landrover, Scout, Bronco, Flatfender and CJ-5 (several of these), made the 32 mile trip through a portion of the San Francisco River.

The article includes a map, pictures, and tales of their exploits. As you can see from the pictures, they spent plenty of time deep in water, crossing the river back and forth. The article begins on the map page (page 2). It’s a pretty large picture.

Photo in America’s National Parks Book from 1966

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images Jeeping

UPDATE:  After some relatively quick searching, I discovered this image is available via National Geographic’s Stock Imagery. Below is an example of the original image.

The photograph was taken in Horse Canyon in Utah.  The photographer was W. Robert Moore.  The picture ID is #614798.

To find the photo, go to the NationalGeographicStock.com website and then enter the id of  614798 in the “quick explore” box.

(10/10/2012)

I bought a book from the 1960s full of photographs from America’s National Parks, called “America’s Wonderlands The National Parks National Geographic“.  As you can see in the link, I paid a whole $1.60 for it.  On Page 222-223 I found this photograph of two jeeps wandering through Canyonlands National Park.  It’s too bad the photograph is slightly split by the binding.

The Second Set of Pics — The Southwestern Utah 1961 Trip

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images Jeeping, Trips • TAGS: , .

Here’s another round of pics from the 1961 Four Corners trip his father-in-law and his father-in-law’s father took.  You can see the earlier round here.

Now, for a bit of trivia, the four corners monument is actually 1800 feet away from the real point where the four states meet.  You can learn why here.

And here they have arrived at the Four Corners, a place which looks a bit different than it looks now!
