This is a photo essay of FJ Summit 9, which was held in Ouray, CO from July 15-19 2015. For the full story on the event read my coverage on OutdoorX4 Online: FJ Summit 9. To check out some of the friendly faces from around this year’s event see my FB Album: Faces of FJ Summit 9. A HUGE thanks to the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and attendees for making this event such an amazing experience for everyone, and especially for accepting me into the fold and sharing with me their passion for Toyota off-road vehicles.

PS: It is also key to seize unique opportunities to explore the local area in depth when they present themselves. I got the opportunity to tour the Revenue Silver Mine, a historic local mine that was recently reopened and modernized. Check out the FB Album: Revenue Silver Mine Tour for a glimpse into this unique experience.
