To say we have been busy having fun would be an understatement. My how time flies.
Metal Masher was a scheduled ride by Moab Friends For Wheeling for April 17. What fun it is to spend the day with these great people. To get there, follow Gemini Bridges Road for 6.1 miles, then make a right turn on the well-marked trail. The loop (almost 12 miles) is rated difficult.
Mirror Gulch, the obstacle below, is a tight squeeze and requires the Moab bump.
Arths Rim is a narrow ledgy rim ride with spectacular views. The beginning of the rim ride faces Hwy 191 with views of the LaSals and the valley. The overlook below is always a favorite stopping spot.
If you look closely, you can see 313 right/center in the photo below. Its one of those WOW rides...twisty, ledgy, and beautiful vistas.
We love watching the big jeeps/buggies play. Here Glen makes a smooth, effortless climb up Rock Chucker.
And Dee makes Widow Maker look like a simple drive on a country road.
Thanks to Glen, we got up Widow Maker just fine...
And a peaceful ride through Arths Pasture admiring the clouds, the LaSals, Behind the Rocks, and the very green desert to end the day.
