Ranch Exit’s team along with Director Chris Patterson, drove a 2010 Toyota 4Runner to Mt. Hood Oregon where they hiked the Pinnacle Trail and recorded their every move. Once at the top of Mt. Hood they looked out across the fog and noticed the peak of a Washington volcano they had to conquer. Once in Washington, Mt. Saint Helen’s treated them well. They were able to hike around the perimeter of the volcano and peer into the caldera before getting the urge to ski and heading to Montana. Trail Tracker led them to ski Bridger Bowl and Big Sky where they spent time mastering the heavy western snow. Ultimately Trail Tracker brought them to Yosemite where they rock climbed for a few days and logged it all on a GPS with the help of a 2010 Toyota 4Runner.
