Tomorrow is travel day.
Before we go, a quick recap for November.
Joe celebrated his 70th birthday earlier in the month. Dee joined us for a delicious dinner at Jeffrey's Steakhouse followed by champagne at her place.
For years, Moab Friends For Wheeling jeep club has volunteered to help with Moab Trail Marathon. It's a huge event with over 1500 runners at just one of the two aide stations we set up and worked. Joe and I helped haul supplies on Friday as the first runners come through before 8 am.

The mornings have been quite chilly recently, but the days warm up nicely. 55 degrees here sure doesn't feel like it did in Georgia. We had a gorgeous, lazy run on Hells Revenge last week. The sky and the LaSal Mountains were so dramatic and we enjoyed watching jeep shadows.
and the cliff, each with their own challenges, beauty and fun.
Yesterday while Joe did some packing and rearranging, I went with Dee to see Pritchett Canyon. There were two other well built vehicles in our little group. Joe and I have heard about Pritchett Canyon for 4 years so I really wanted to see it and all it's challenges. Locals say it's the hardest trail here and now I know why ! It's only 4.2 miles of trail, but Charles Wells Guide says to allow a full day for obstacles like Chewy, Rocker Knocker, Axel Hill and Yellow Hill. My mouth dropped at the sight of boulders much taller than Blanche (Dee's jeep). Some of the obstacles were in the shade, wet and slippery which added to the scary fun.
We made the first tracks on Pritchett yesterday.
It's an awesome canyon and Dee pointed our several hikes for this spring.
We might even do some wheeling here too. The first big obstacle is Chewy. Here Warren heads up after Dee.
Nothing like a good flex and stretch on a chilly morning !
And then Larry follows.
Just ahead of here, there was a nice sunny (and warm) spot to stop for lunch with a view.
On the way out, we passed Pritchett Arch. It's farther than the picture makes it look like is...I zoomed !
Until next time, let the good times roll !
HAPPY TRAILS !
