July 1-4, 2017
Saturday, July 1st, was quite an exciting day. We picked up our oldest son, James (who lives in LaGrange, GA), at Grand Junction Regional Airport for a week long visit with us in Moab.
Sunday, we were up bright and early to beat the heat. The trail for the day was Cliffhanger. Why was it chosen first? Its totally awesome ! And one of our favorites that we wanted to share with James. Jeff led us up, down and over boulders and ledges, followed by Joe and James, followed by Dee and me, with Glen bringing up the back. This is one of those trails with a "WOW" around every corner ! And the overlook of Jackson Hole and the Colorado River is spectacular.

Monday our trail for the day was Kane Creek Canyon Trail. Glen led, followed by Joe and James, with Dee and me in the back. It's another favorite because of the varied terrain...the desert with lots of boulders to play on,
|Joe and James check out Glen's line over Roy's Rock...a tall boulder. I love all that flex !|
and the ledge that winds around as it climbs out of the canyon.
This ledge is home to Hamburger Hill...a long, difficult boulder climb. Glen climbs first and takes pictures as the rest of us make our ascent.
Tuesday, July 4th, we had the pleasure of leading a Moab visitor from Iowa on Fins & Things. Adrienne was here for a week and looking for someone to ride with. Dee suggested Fins...it's a fun trail and a great prerequisite for Hell's Revenge. And its a trail we know well ! Adrienne's well built/modified JK 2 door performed flawlessly.

Up next, James drives WileE...wahoo!
Until then, take care and
HAPPY TRAILS !
