Cool Moab 2012

Already shared the Colorado portion of this trip. Here's the Moab part.

I'll post the links to the albums up top here, then share some of my favorite pics below.

Tuesday: Metal Masher

Wednesday: Hells and Fins

Thursday: Arches National Park

Friday: Moab Rim

Did Metal Masher Tuesday with JCF. Had a good time, but we were still somewhat tired from all the traveling around in Colorado we did.









We did Hell's Revenge and Fins N Things on Wednesday. Dempsey did most of the driving because I have run those trails a couple of times before. I only took the wheel to do a few fun things that I hadn't done before, like tip over challenge on Hells.

Dempsey in the Car Wash:





Lunch at the top of tip over challenge:



Sweet CJ running tip over challenge while we were eating:

Mostly hiking and driving the paved road through Arches Nat'l Park on Thursday. Beautiful scenery.

Park Avenue:









1.5 mile hike from parking to Delicate Arch...





WORTH IT!!!

Friday was Moab Rim. Quite possibly the most difficult trail I have ever ran, and my new favorite in Moab. (it bumped Hell's Revenge to 2nd place)













Coming back down:



Met some rigs headed up:



This is as off camber as it looks.





Coming down Devil's crack.









Success!

Moab Rim was my first Moab trail in 2004. It was raining and cold at the JES, that trail was scary and damn fun.

Haven't run it since only because I'm always wanting to do new trails, hard or easy.

Thanks. We don't have any special skills. These are trails anyone with some descent driving skills and a well equipped rig can do.

I've never had any desire to be there during the safari. Good luck though.

holy crap my palms are sweaty from looking at those pictures. that is freaking awesome! god i have to get out of florida....

stupid question 1. do you need to be locked to do that stuff? or are you guys going up any of that open?

stupid question 2. do you guys tear up a lot of stuff... or are you guys really just tagging skid plates and bumpers coming off some of those shelves?

i have a new purpose in life... and it's to get out there...

#1 not everyone has lockers, so no you can do a ton of it without
#2 depends how you drive & on the spotter, a good spotter will keep you out of trouble & lift & bigger tires are a great help


Hey! that guy, the Green Cherokee, he reminds me of someone

I have ARBs in my Jeep, but the more I wheel it the less I try to use them. They are great, and I wouldn't be without them for anything, but I like trying to run most everything open just to make it harder on me. If I need them, they're just a switch flip away.

The sandstone in Moab provides an extreme amount of traction. You will be amazed at the hills you can climb out there. Much, much steeper that you can on the dirt or loose rock that we are accustomed to in this part of the country. You can climb things and do things open in Moab that you couldn't get away with in other parts of the country.

I've never broken anything on my Jeep on the trail, but I'm pretty careful. (and lucky.) It'll happen one day I'm sure. In my Jeep I ocassionally catch the gas tank skid (Rokmen) or the corner of the rear bumper when traversing steps or ledges. I don't often hit the belly on things thanks to the tummy tuck.

Moab is a 4x4 enthusiasts Mecca. If you can swing it, go.

Same for any trail. Don't go alone, be careful, and when in doubt (like at the Devil's Crack) use a spotter.
