Before I could drive anywhere today I needed to replace the water pump on my Jeep for the second time on this trip. It took a few hours in the morning, so I got a later start than normal.

After a good nights sleep it was time to get out and do some more exploring around Moab. My first destination was to head up to Hurrah Pass.
IntrepidXpedition 2007 | Day 10
Saturday, July 28, 2007
When I woke up on that Saturday morning, I had been in Colorado for 9 full days. It was finally time to head out and move on to Utah. My destination for this day was the La Sal Mountains and Moab, Utah. I was planning on getting there via the Castleton-Gateway Road. In order to get to Gateway, I needed to cross over the passes to the Telluride side. I knew Black Bear still wasn’t opened yet, but had heard Ophir Pass was open again, so I decided to give Ophir a second chance. When I made it to the pass this time around, the road closed signs were gone, so I continued on down the other side towards the little town of Ophir.

After a few days up in Grand Junction, I was headed back down to Silverton for the dinner and raffle the Colorado Chapter of NAXJA was putting on for ColoradoFest. Before I left the area, I had a few places I wanted to explore on my way south. I started off by heading to the Colorado National Monument.
IntrepidXpedition 2007 | Day 7 & 8
Wednesday & Thursday, July 25-26, 2007
Most of my day on Wednesday was spent at the UFWDA Annual Convention. However when we finished for the day, the only thing on my mind was heading out and exploring the area just outside of town. Right near the hotel that the convention was held at is an OHV area at the base of the Book Cliffs called The Grand Junction Desert. I started out by following 27.25 Road north. Eventually the pavement turned to gravel and then to a bumpier trail.
