Time for a snorkel and big puddles. It is hard to tell from the picture, is the soil dried out and cracked, or is that just debris that makes it look that way?
We have a couple of Jeep clubs here that do some pretty cool off road trips.

It was red sandstone and red sand mostly on thst trail. And I do have electric lockers on both axles. It climbs like a mountain goat.

The soil reminds me of a forest near me that years ago was high enough in elevation that it was an island, and the shore line was Pa. The soils there go from yellow to orange and red. Real nice for offroad.
One time when I was keeping the kids out of the house so my wife could wrap Christmas presents, I took them to the million acre forest to kill some time. At the time, I owned the Chevy Duramax CC. We came to what I thought was a 2' puddle, so I put the truck in 4X4 to cross this 100' puddle. It was so deep that the water came over the hood and actually washed over the cab. I nailed it and made it through. The kids loved it and asked that I turn around an go through again. I took another trail out and made it to the highway and spent the next two hours in a self car wash trying to get all the mud out from under the hood. What a nightmare. Now I can laugh, but then I was totally freaked out.
