Kane Creek After a Flash Flood

Last Sunday, over Labor Day weekend, a small group decided to run Kane Creek. The day was sunny and beautiful with that late summer mix of clouds and sun that make every photo look great. The first portion of the trail is so scenic and dry. It's hard to believe that we will soon be crossing Kane Creek many times. Beautiful trail. I guess we should be enjoying this portion because all of that is about to change. The group gets to a tight portion of the trail. Larry has to problems getting over it. Gene and Irma made it look easy too. Go MoabyJ. This Scrambler was almost wider than the trail in spots! But soon enough, we descended into the creek area and realized that a major flash flood had been through recently. You can see from Ber's route that the flash flood has … [Read more...]

Labor Day Pritchett

Lots of folks were in Moab for the busy Labor Day weekend and the WebeJeepers¬†decided to run Pritchett Canyon. Melanie volunteered to be the first one to drive our Clubby Buggy that David Garbs had donated the weekend before. Now Clubby might not be much to look at but this little Samurai has had a long history in Moab. Once it was even known as Mad Cow and belonged to Holly Jensen. Now, it's just an old Samurai that belongs to the MFFW.   Here's Jeff giving Melanie an inservice on how to operate the vehicle. Now after a quick spin down the pavement, she's surely ready to tackle an easy trip up Pritchett Canyon. Let's tip-toe Melanie. Well, apparently Melanie is not going to tip-toe. She is going to stomp her way through the Canyon, taking the harder lines. Well, this is the … [Read more...]

Day Canyon Point

A small group of Jeeps made the trip to visit Day Canyon Point. This will be a new trail for the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari. Interestingly enough, only one person in our group had ever been out to Day Canyon and she wasn't quite sure how to get there. Luckily, we had a copy of Jack Bicker's book on the area and it gave a small map with a trail description. So, with this little bit of information, we decided to journey out to see if we could find Day Canyon or at least spend the day wandering the desert. We started at the base of Long Canyon as the trail description shows that it is a side trail off of the Long Canyon road near the turn off to Dead Horse State park. I love this area, it is so scenic and today was no different. What would Long Canyon be without a photo of Jeeps driving … [Read more...]
