This brings us up to this weekend in Moab. We have made some improvements to the FJ in the last month or so. I built front and rear bumpers. A rear slider. Installed some Rigid D2 lights. Still no skids.
To see the details go here;
These were taken on 3/7/15. The trail was Chicken Corners. We have always wanted to explore this area more, yesterday we did just that. The trail was very easy. We saw two stock FJ's on it and they were having no trouble at all. We chose a more difficult line a few times, but that was optional.
The top of Hurrah Pass.
This is looking down into the valley we are about to descend into.
The trail is plenty wide, beautiful, but cliff ridden. Common sense, and low gears will get you down without heating up your brakes. We used 4 lo to keep it slow. Gosh I like being able to see the front tires now. What a drastic change in appearance and abilities.
Here is a view of where we are heading.
Here you see the snow capped LaSalle Mountain tops to the east.
Here we are coming up on Chicken Corners. The river is straight below us. No drinking and driving on this trail fellas.
Not a bad spot for lunch. This is straight across the river from the Thelma and Louise cliff I showed you earlier. I think the network of roads out here is simply amazing. Hats off to the State of Utah for allowing us to "Tread Lightly" in this beautiful back country. And many thanks to all those who do so much to help keep these trails open. ( Blue Ribbon Coalition and Red Rock 4 Wheelers just to name a couple!!
Also I feel BIG props are due to all of you!!! I've been going to Moab quite regularly for the past decade. Lots and lots of people frequent these trails. Usually when lots of people are involved, one finds lots of trash strewn about. These trails are clean as can be. I know some dirt bags litter here and there, but it's folks like you and I who pick up trash when we see it that keeps these trails open and looking so pristine.
Another thing that is great to see is the lack of tire tracks "out of bounds." Props again for staying on the trail. There are misinformed morons out there, trying vehemently to get these lands closed off to our kind of recreation. Keeping in bounds and picking up after the slobs will speak volumes in our favor. Thanks Folks!!
Anyway, on this trail we saw a few folks out here but generally speaking had the place all to ourselves. Special day.
I don't have to be spinning my wheels to have a good time in my FJ.
The butte above the FJ is Dead Horse Point, once again. We are straight across the river/canyon from where we were the other day.
What a big, beautiful place. We love it out there. Beautiful views, 360 degrees.
