Last Weekend Around Moab

Friday – Sunday, October 11-13, 2013

After an amazing day of weather and photography I woke up early again and decided to drive out to Dead Horse Point State Park so I could catch the sunrise this morning. It had been a few years since I’d been up there and they were offering free admission to anyone with a National Parks Pass while the National Parks were still closed. I was also hoping there might be some leftover clouds from the storms the previous day. When I arrived I was surprised to find that there were only a couple of other people up there. I figured with all the other parks closed, this would be a popular place. I’m glad it wasn’t.

Short Trip Through Four Arches Canyon

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Sunday was our final day in Moab and I’m not going to lie, I was getting pretty exhausted after exploring and wheeling the last eight days plus staying up later than normal around the campfire with my friends. Still, I didn’t want to head home on Sunday without exploring a new trail, even if it didn’t take very long. After checking out from our motel, Amanda and I headed out to check out Four Arches Canyon.

Windy & Dusty on the Porcupine Rim

Saturday, October 11, 2008

Saturday was the start of my final weekend in Moab this trip. I decided to go on another official trail ride and tag along with Jared who was leading Porcupine Rim. Only about eight Jeeps showed up for this trail ride, which I thought was good. However, this trail turned out to be very very bumpy and it took us longer that we had planned to complete the trail. Not to mention that we also missed a turn and passed up the loop we were planning on taking by a few miles. The night before, the temperatures in Moab had dropped pretty significantly and while we were on the trail the wind picked up pretty good and threw a lot of dust into the air. Even with the windy weather and bumpy trail, we had a great day!

Leading Klondike Bluffs

Friday, October 10, 2008

Friday was my day to lead a trail. I had volunteered to lead the Klondike Bluffs trail earlier this year for the event. A few weeks earlier Amanda and I had come down to Moab and pre-ran this trail along with the alternate exit along Copper Ridge that I took so that I could get it into my GPS. The Klondike Bluffs trail is not a difficult trail and the group we had was not as big as I was expecting, so we were planning on finishing a bit early this day so that everyone would have some time to relax before heading to the big dinner and raffle in town that night.

Dome Plateau Led by Alex

Thursday, October 9, 2008

On Thursday I decided to go on another official trail ride which was led by Alex. He likes to lead a new trail every year that he has never run before, and this year he chose to check out Dome Plateau. Lucky for me, this was also an area that I wanted to explore, so I volunteered to tailgun for him as well. He did his homework on the area, and we only missed one turn the whole day, but he quickly realized it and got us turned around right away.
