Second annual week long trip, September 21st through 29th.

This will be my second annual vacation trip. I will be making this vacation trip an annual event around the third week of September, pending work schedule. I welcome any tips, or locations, or events that you have to offer.

I am planning on a week long trip with my YJ, nothing too serious or extreme, just moderate driving, wheeling and sightseeing/exploring. I do not want to go extreme as that my Jeep will be my only way around. (Besides, I leave the extreme stuff to the experts).

If I happen to bump in to anyone while on my trip, youíre more than welcome to tag along. Let me know by at least the week before if you happen to be in any of the areas listed below.

Saturday the 21st. Leave Vernal and head down the Bonanza Highway to and over Baxter pass via the old Dragon Railroad to look for old railroad spikes and explore old ghost towns. Arrive in Fruitland, Colo. and stay the night.

Sunday the 22nd. Explore Colorado National Monument until early afternoon, then I head down to Moab and stay the night.

Monday the 23rd. Drive to Arches Natl. Park and hike to Delicate Arch. (I have hiked both the lower and upper trails every time that I have been there). I will then spend the rest of the day exploring the many arches that the park has to offer.

Tuesday the 24th. Continue exploring around Moab, then head down to the Hole in the Rock on Hwy. 191.

Wednesday the 25th. Continue exploring around Moab.

Thursday the 26th. Leave Moab and Head to Green River, camp out at the Crystal Geyser.

Friday the 27th. Go up Gray Canyon to Rattlesnake Canyon, explore the area and look for old homesteads to take pictures of.

Saturday the 28th. Continue exploring Gray Canyon and Rattlesnake Canyon.

Sunday the 29th. Head back home to Vernal by way of Price and Hwy. 191 through Indian Canyon and Hwy. 40 East from Duchesne.

*Schedule is subject to change based on if my new store is built by then, running condition of my Jeep, the weather, events, and whom I happen to meet up with. My destination had gotten rained out and flooded about five miles up Gray Canyon above Green River last year. Yeah, I could have four-wheeled and winched my way through, but why tear up a good road? I have respect for the roads and trails.
