I have done many posts on the Hell's Revenge 4-Wheel Drive Trail, but today's adventure was made extra special by having MonaLiza and Steve (lowestravels.com) join us. I will never forget the first time Joe and I drove Pearl there and all the adventures we have had since on this awesome, iconic Moab trail. We joined our friends Dee, Mike and Melina and the Havasu 4-Wheelers. Dee and Mike both had buggies while the rest of us had an assortment of jeeps.
Mike leads the way...
Our first stop of the day was the River Overlook. Of course the Colorado River and Hwy 128 are not all you can see. The large vistas sweep full circle from the river to Arches NP to the La Sal Mountains to Moab Rim (the cliffs that overlook Moab).

The first obstacle of the day was Hell's Gate. MonaLiza and Steve enjoyed a nice climb up the Gate with Dee. Dee's buggy Wild Thing is at the back of the line.

We all gathered around The Hot Tub for lunch with a view after that.
Before we left, the buggies took a dip in The Hot Tub.
Near the end of this 6.5 mile trail is Escalator. Pictures don't quite show the difficulty of this two in one obstacle,
but Steve's reaction does show the thrill of the ride!
What a great day we had. A huge thank you to Dee and Mike.
Until next time, happy days...
happy trails !
When we got home, the sun was setting behind Poison Spider Mesa.
I went inside to let the pups out. Jack has to stay in a crate which we call his man cave. When he ran out I noticed he had his baby standing up in the back of the crate covered with his blankie. Since that day, we have found it that way twice.
How sweet is that?
