Best of the West | MoabCO Trip 2006
Sunday, May 7, 2006

On the way home from Moab, I met up with the Best of the West event and ran Carnage Gulch with them near Buena Vista. It was a very fun and challenging trail.

The trail lived up to it’s name 😉

These photos were sent to me by Formatt who was on the trail with us.

My final day in Moab was spent on the Kane Creek Canyon trail. This is a fun and very scenic trail with plenty of water crossings.

We got stuck on this trail most of the day because there was an ATV accident. We were stopped for a while so a helicopter could land in the canyon to take the injured rider out. It was an unusual sight.

On Thursday morning we met up early and headed for Pritchett Canyon. I had been looking forward to checking out this trail for quite a while, so I was pretty excited about it. We had a pretty large group, so it took up most of the day to get through the trail and back to Moab. Plus we ran into a few groups ahead of us that slowed us down some more. The trail was as fun as I had hoped, and I didn’t even need to winch once with my 33’s. Here’s a few photos from the day.

On Wednesday we were originally supposed to run the Golden Spike trail, but since the trail leader’s wife hit a deer on the way down to Moab the night before we got a much later start to the day. Instead, we went and played around in Area BFE for a while. Our original goal was to run Green Day, but since none of us had really been there before we had a hard time finding it. We ended up running some of Green Day and then I played around on the entrance to Upper Helldorado for a little bit.
