Moab Cliff Hanger Pic!! Yowsa!!

This photo was taken by my P/O'd Wife at the end of "The Top of The World" trail near Moab. I just had to do it. Great Trail.

On the way up:



To the west, Fisher Towers: Taken from the rock my Jeep is on. Simply breathtaking.

Yes, actually on the way from Western Colorado to that trail that day I was wishing I had packed my tire chains. It was 6 to 7 inches deep in places on the way out there, but only 0-4 once we got on the trail. I think the snow actually made the trip more memorable, & we spun a bit in a few spots. The TJ wasn't lifted or locked & he needed a tug or two & did a whole lot of spinning.
Fun trail.
I guess during the bonifide run during Jeep Safari this year, the officiators would not let folks out on that ledge for photo ops.

LOL, nice pic. Ya, it's a bit gut wrenching to get out on the ledge. Especially with a manual tranny. My Wife was yelling at me as well, lol.
Thanks for sharing your pic.

I couldn't see the edge over the hood, so it did make it a bit scary, even where I was. Next time I'm living on the edge... I freaked out two of the guys that were with me when I sat on the edge.

Ya, I know what you mean. I had my wife & others who were there pissed off. I actually got in front of my jeep & hung off the front. I'll try to find that pic & put it up.
