The X3 in the Ozarks

I recently took a road trip with the wife/dog/friends to the Ozarks to catch the fall colors. We took the X3 to the Glade Top Trail in the Mark Twain Forest. It pretty much did its thing. I put the X3 in Manual mode to control the transmission. Didnt really notice I was driving up and down steep hills on gravel/dirt.

The X3 was a blast on the country roads surrounding the area. Man, amazing this thing can do what it does carrying all the stuff we had in it.

Here is a picture, we missed the peak colors by a week. With some computer magic, you wouldn't have guessed!
