Another fabulous trip to Moab.  The weather in the high 70’s and low 80’s everyday, a few clouds, but no rain.  Perfect for wheeling especially when we encountered snow in the high country on the drive over.

Day 1 of the trip we started out with Fins n Things.   A great trail that has such a variety of terrain it is a good overview of what Moab has to offer.

We had a couple of guests from Brooklyn, NY with us for this trail. They seemed to really enjoy they opportunity to get the chance to experience 4-wheeling in Moab.  After Fins n Things they were headed out to see more of Utah, while the rest of our group headed for Hell’s Revenge for some more wheeling. We skipped a couple of the extreme obstacles, but still had a great time on the trail.

Day 2 of the trip we headed north to Sevenmile Rim.   The views from the mesa tops are unforgettable and it was pretty cool to drive between the Monitor and Merrimac Buttes. Near the end of Sevenmile Rim Trail we took a shortcut using the 3D trail to get to Tusher Tunnel.  There we took a short hike to walk through the tunnel where there are some amazing views to see when you get through to the other side.

Day 3 of the trip we ventured out for to a different kind of trail for Moab – Kane Creek Canyon.   With 40+ water crossing it is a lot of fun weaving through the canyon bottom before the final ascent up a narrow shelf road to the exit.   A few exciting obstacles along the way make this a fun trip.

Day 4, our final day of the trip we explored Poison Spider Mesa, including one of the overlooks.  This trail has some fun obstacles and a great time was had by all.
