Default Beef Basin, spring 2013.

Not being able to afford registration for Cruise Moab this year, I decided to head out further into the desert for a little R&R. Original plans called for a long week exploring Beef Basin and surrounding country, but after getting tires installed, budget was a little tight for the trip. So Martin and I ended up at Bee Basin for two days. Sure was nice to get back there. 4 years is way to long.

On to the pics:

Great pics Perry. Thanks for giving me the tour of the area. It was a much needed escape. Wish I could have spent the whole week out there hiking around.
