In 1989, Land Rover hustled a flock of first-gen Range Rovers over the toughest trails on Colorado's Continental Divide. Here's the delightfully retro video of the original expedition, and a breathtaking batch of photos from this year's reunion tour.

The recent trip was a little shorter, just 1,000 miles of the original route, but in addition to nine new Range Rovers "with no special modifications" they brought one of the elder trucks that Land Rover claims was on the first trip 25 years ago.

That would mean the truck on this trip is actually not the same one Land Rover "restored" and sold, as that was identified as a "re-creation."

I could flip through this reunion album all day. These images are uploaded as large as I could for your wallpapering pleasure, enjoy:
