March 9th I headed out to Moab for 5 days with a few local Jeepers and my roommate tagged along. This is the 2nd time I've been to Moab in a Jeep, but my first time driving as the last time I was just along for the ride. The weather was beautiful with temperatures in the 70's and sunny. However the wind did pick up on about the third day.
Trails that were run:
Fins N' Things
7 Mile Rim
I was the only one in a TJ/LJ, everyone else had JK's and there was one heavily modified Commander XK.
THis Ferrari 599 was in the parking lot of the hotel (La Quinta) when we arrived
Upon arriving mid afternoon on Friday we ran the short loop of Fins N' Things before sundown, followed by Baby Lions Back to get warmed up. We finished up the longer loop on Sunday after running Kane's Creek.
The infamous Crown Vic followed us up Baby Lions Back:
Half of the Group headed home Tuesday, while the rest of us were going to run Potash Road to the Shafer Switchbacks and make the loop through Long Canyon. After making it to the gate for the Switchbacks we found that it was locked, meaning we had to turn around and head all the way back. Once back to the main road we ran Long Canyon backwards to get to Dead Horse Lookout and Canyonlands Nat'l Park. We found out once in Canyonlands that there was still snow on the switchbacks and they were planning of open them the next day. The Next day we went home, but not before spending half a day in Arched Nat'l Park.

Overall it was an amazing trip and I can't wait to go back. Now that I've got a lot of the scenic, easier trails out of the way I want to do some more challenging stuff. There were 100's of photos taken along with GoPro Video this is just a small selection.
If you can't take a nano-second to press shift/period/etc. and make proper sentences and paragraphs, I don't know if I can take a few minutes to respond to your topics... It doesn't have to be perfect by any means, but a little effort goes a long way.
