Default Just got Back from Moab

Sarah and I went to Moab this weekend based on her Spring Break schedule. Rachel had something come up and couldnt make it

It was nice with no other vehicles on the trails. Plenty of Mtn bikes and a few hikers

We did Gold Bar Rim, Finsn Things, Porcupine Rim and went into the Arches park (Hadnt done that before) and took their 4-wheel drive trail to Klondike Bluffs

Weather was great. There was plenty of snow on Porcupine on the first part that doesnt get a lot of sun. It was passable

Happy to hear you had a good safe trip. Now to wait another 63 hours until I arrive at BFE. But who's counting

How was the 4x4 road in Arches? Which direction did you drive it? When I rolled down (north to south) in Early Feb there was basically no snow on it. Just the north face right after leaving Salt Valley Rd.

It was actually a lot of fun, not difficult though. We went in the park and took the trail north to Klondike Bluffs and the arch there and then took the trail to Salt Flats Road back into other attractions and stopped at the Sand Dune Arch off the paved road on the way back.

Whats that last obstacle in the pics? Looks like quite a climb! Good on you for getting out there with your kids Romer, I really respect that.
