Another very popular trail in Moab is Poison Spider. As the story goes, back in the 1870s a young girl named Mary was bitten by a poison spider and died on Poison Spider Mesa. Anyway, large awkward ledges with tippy spots give this highly traveled 10 mile trail a difficult rating. I like it because the of the varied terrain...a mesa with gorgeous scenery, scary fun obstacles like The Wedgy, and amazing slick rock fins.
The weather was perfect as we snaked our way along the trail with Dave and Lynn.
Aren't these machines just amazing? Check out the flex on Rokell as Dave climbs The Wedgy.
Another day, Dee joined us for a short version of Poison Spider.
It was late in the day and as we were heading out and we enjoyed beautiful reflections on the Colorado River.
Another day, Joe and I joined Red Rock 4 Wheelers (the other local club) on Strike Ravine.
Traversing through the ravine was quite colorful...
Strike Ravine is on the south side of town in a rugged area of craggy canyons and old mines. It's full of steep boulder fields and narrow shelf ledges.
No season is complete without a quick jaunt through Long Canyon. Over the past few years, Long Canyon has washed out and isn't quite as easy as it was when we first drove it 4+ years ago. But it is still a beauty !
We joined Dave and drove it from top to bottom enjoying every second as we squeezed through Pucker Pass...
