Moab Rim

Moab Rim on Saturday, July 13th. We got an early start to again try to beat the heat and so I apologize that some of these photos are dark. We were at least in the shade going up the Rim. Dee was our trail leader today with a group of 3 Jeeps and 2 Samurais. Across the Colorado from the Moab Rim trail head, you can see Little Arch up on the Poison Spider Mesa. Dee led the way up the Rim. Up and over the Devil's Crack. This is absolutely one of my favorite views in Moab. I love to see the Jeeps climbing up the trail with the Portal in the background. Now we're getting into better lighting with Dee leading the way up the Z turn. Susan & Jeff & Gene making their way up in the Samurais. Here's Dee, giving some spotting advice and driving instructions to Glen. She … [Read more...]

AREA BFE

Fun times in Area BFE over the 4th of July weekend. Temperatures were hot and the no see 'ems were angry! A group from the Moab Friends for Wheelin' met up at the BFE parking lot to run some trails. AREA BFE has got to be one of the most amazing places to Jeep with a mix of moderate to hard core wheeling, I knew that today would be interesting. We started up Minor Threat, following the Rock race course that Jeff participated in last year. Once we turned onto Green Day backwards, we decided to go on the harder portion of the trail and not the regular track for the racers, basically, we stayed in the dry wash. The Green Day waterfall was pretty easy today although it made for some decent photos. David and his texting friend from Israel. Put down the smart phone and enjoy life! … [Read more...]

Jackson Hole and Wind Caves

On July 5th, another small group: Ber & Charlotte, Glen & Irma, and I went out to tour the Jackson Hole area and make a trip to the Wind Caves. As today was predicted to be another hot one, we left at 8am and went quickly up to Hurrah Pass. From Hurrah Pass you can look down to the Colorado River and across to the Potash Plant. Jackson Hole is an area where the Colorado River used to run long ago and is the bottom of the cliffy area off of Cliffhanger trail. This is a rarely used trail and quite easy, high clearance 2WD most of the way. Ber & Charlotte were in their yellow Jeep today. Here they are coming across the desert. After completing the Jackson Hole portion, we turned back onto the Chicken Corners trail and made our way to the Wind Caves for lunch and … [Read more...]
