A Merry Christmas - Jeep style.

As our Jeep was a-jeeping
Crawling rock and slinging mud,
As our wheels were a-wheeling
And singing Thud-Thud-Thud.

As our Wrangler was a-wrangling
And our Air bags were a-sway,
We thought how awesome it would be
If our Jeep were Santa's Sleigh.

So we called to the North Pole
From our direct line.
We spoke to Santa's Engineer
And told him what we had in mind!

Genius! He exclaimed
Let me run it by the Big Man!
Santa loved the idea.
He thought it was grand!

The Elves began building
With fenders and grill,
Adding Mickey Thompson tires
Skid plates and all the Jeep Frills.

It was Red and It was shiny
And it had 8 off-road lights.
The Jeep had a 13 inch lift kit
And it looked like it could take flight.
But how would this Jeep Sleigh
Lift up in the sky?
It is unbeatable on ground
But how can it fly?

Christmas Eve came too soon
And it still couldn't fly.
Santa's Elves and Engineer
Had big tears in their eyes.

When what to their wondering
Eyes did appear...
But Santa with his toy bag
And all his jeep gear

He climbed into his Sleigh
And said "Step aside!"
The Jeep began flying
"Let the Big Man Ride!"

As he locked in his lockers
And flew out of sight.
Merry Christmas to all
Echoed all through the night.

Merry Christmas to all, and
to all a good night!

Each of our drivers has a "Cowboy Name". Many of those come from real life cowboys of the west. Our own Prairie Dog will take you for a jeep ride instead of the elk ride you would get from his namesake. Here, Prairie Dog O'Byrne rides Thunder down a snowy street in Cripple Creek in the 1890s.

Many of our tours include Manitou Springs which looks lovely this time of year. - Thank you to our driver Tumbleweed for this shot.

The First Hot-Air Balloon | The Greatest Moments in Flight Reference Article

WHAT A WONDERFUL SURPRISE! We spotted a mule deer on our Foothills tour surprise, we see mule deer often. Except this mule deer had a little bunny rabbit friend nuzzling about the snout. By the time I got my camera out the bunny had moved down to the deer's haunches and was just hanging out with his buddy. I think we can all agree - it's great to have a friend. (If you can zoom in on the deer's back legs and get a close look at his little buddy.)

You can tour the high country in luxury as well at AOW!
