End of April Moab Trip | Saturday

Saturday, April 24, 2009

For the final weekend in April we decided to head back to Moab. We were originally planning on checking out the car show, but after encountering the crowd and traffic that was present in Moab, we got out of town and stayed away as best we could. Many people complain about the crowds during EJS, but let me tell you….it’s much worse during the car show. I will not be heading into Moab on the car show weekend again…

Otto’s Trail

Saturday, April 4, 2009

Since my ‘America the Beautiful’ National Parks pass expired this week, I decided to head up to the Colorado National Monument to buy a new one. I figured while I was there I would break out my camera and hike the short Otto’s Trail. It was a gloomy and snowy day up there, but I think I managed to snap a few good HDR images.

‘Gotta get out’ Moab Weekend

Saturday & Sunday, March 28-29, 2009

After finally getting my Jeep trail ready again (new head gasket, oil pan, rear main seal, oil filter o-rings, front wheel bearing, driver’s seat, windshield and a fresh coat of paint on the front bumper) and realizing I had not gone out exploring in my Jeep for two months, it was time for me to get out again. What better place to go than Moab?

I decided to stick to the Island Area northwest of Moab for this trip. Bright and early Saturday morning Amanda and I hit the road and made out way to the Horsethief campground just off of Highway 313. After setting up camp we made our way over to the Dellenbaugh Tunnel. The last time I was at this tunnel was in 2007, however I was short on time that trip and didn’t get to explore too much.

After finding two geocaches near the tunnel we turned around and headed back and stopped to check out and photograph this water-carved wash nearby.
