Moab 2010 (Three Trips, Lots of Pics)

OK, my favorite wheeling location is Moab and I think it is far too underrepresented on this forum.

So, I’ve got a collection of photos from our three trips down to red rock country this year that I’m posting here. These don’t represent all the trails we did over the course of the year, but I figure 40 pictures ought to do it…sorry if it’s too many photos, but it’s always so hard to pick favorites.

May 2010

Trail: Poison Spider Mesa

The Wedge



Entering what I call the “air hole” at the end of the Wedge.



Why I call it the air hole.



Our group…all family.



Trail: Steel Bender

The Fall







Random spot on the trail.



Another random spot.



Fins ‘n’ Things

I let my nephew drive this one. It was his first time off-roading…he did pretty good.

Trail: Moab Rim

Approaching the Devils Crack with the Colorado below.



The Devils Crack

For those who haven’t been to Moab, this obstacle in and of itself is not all that difficult, but the couple hundred foot vertical drop and hard stop on the paved road and in the river below just feet away from my back tires in these shots always makes me appreciate a spotter.









Coming down the Z-Turn…I didn’t get any going up.



A beauty shot with the Colorado below.



Coming down the Devils Crack. At this point, you’re headed straight for the cliff edge just a couple yards straight ahead. You make a hard left and avoid becoming a pancake.



September 2010

Trail: Metal Masher

Rock Chucker















Widow Maker

Traction and power aren’t the issues with getting up this one…it’s keeping your front tires on the rock, thus preventing you from turning belly up. You’ll notice the winch line in some of these shots; it’s not to pull me up, just to keep my front tires down.

Trail: Flat Iron Mesa

An optional obstacle right after the Chute.



Had to use a strap here…you’ll notice the front tires beginning to come up here as the skinny pedal is applied.



October 2010

Golden Spike

Beauty shot



Golden Crack

We usually try to make down at least twice, but this year we were able to squeeze in an extra weekend trip. I actually sometimes feel bad that we don't get to Moab more often, being just three hours away and all.

Yea thats sweet alright. Where did you order your rear short corners from? Thats one of my next pieces to add to the jeep. Beautiful scenery. Is it safe to swim in the Colorado River?

The rear corners are Fabtech...I think I ordered them from Quadratec. I've been happy with them. They're very stout 3/16" steel. I actually had problems with one of them when I first got them; it was an issue with the powder coating. After emailing some photos and sending the flawed one back, I received a new one from Fabtech with no hassle. Believe it or not, though, the new one they sent me actually had some kind of six or seven digit serial number stamped on the outside instead of the inside. When they followed up with me by email, I told them about this and attached a picture. I had a response the same day apologizing and telling me they were sending me another new one and that I could just keep the old one. So, good customer service, too.

As far as swimming in the Colorado goes, I've never tried it, but I suppose you could. I believe there is a pretty strong current, though. Rafting is much more common.

Awesome pics. I was there this summer for the second time with my Jeep and I did Moab Rim and Poison Spider both for the first time. Moab Rim is such a sweet trail and pics do not do it justice.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.
