Last Saturday (Dang, time flies!), it was clean-up day on the section of Highway 191 North adopted by Moab's Friends 4-Wheelin'. Dee, Joe, Dave, Richie, & I were responsible for the east side between mile markers 132 & 133.
This vertical wall is so tame it didn't even have a name...Pearl took the go-around!
|Dee and Nancy eased the approach by restacking logs, limbs, & rocks scrambled by the previous buggy's climb.|
|That is Jeff climbing Rock Chucker. He built his own buggy.|
|And Glen made it up on the first try. What a fine looking buggy and he stretched it himself in his home garage.|
Metal Masher, without the extreme obstacles, is a difficult and fun trail to do. It is on the north side of town, measures 12 miles and takes 4 to 5 hours.
|Dee climbs Misty's Thumb...|
The overlook along Arths Rim is amazing.
|Looking left towards Hwy 191 north...|
|Looking right towards Moab Valley and the LaSal Mountains...|
|Looking straight ahead towards Klondike Bluffs with Arches NP on the far horizon...|
It was a long eight hour day with a little work and a whole lot of fun!
Until next time, enjoy the view and...
Richie made a great video with his drone of the buggies climbing Widow Maker...check it out!
