It's that time of year again!! Easter Jeep Safari time!! Here are the details and WAY too many picture of our adventures this past week:
FRIDAY APRIL 2
Cory and I planned on leaving by 11 but that didn't end up happening. We arrived in Moab around 5 and found our hotel. It was a cute little place. It was older and had that musty smell, and the bed was like sleeping on cardboard. But it was worth the price and we were grateful we didn't have to worry about being cold. We settled in and went to Pasta Jay's for dinner. Then we drove up to Potato Salad but it was closed by the time we got to it. So, we went back to the hotel, watched some TV and went to sleep.
SATURDAY APRIL 3
We woke up late and had our breakfast then needed to find something to kill the time until Dustin and David came down. So, we went back to Potato Salad. This was the crowd there at 11 in the morning:
SUNDAY APRIL 4
We woke up and found out that the safari wasn't doing trails that day so we could go try the cliffhanger trail. Here's the sign at the beginning. I thought it was cool.
After the trail Dustin and David had to go home. We repaired Collin's Jeep (he was supposed to do the trail with us but his alternator went out right after he aired down so we had to abandon it and fix it later) and decided to head up to Canyonlands and stay with my parents. We didn't feel like finding our own campsite for the night.
MONDAY APRIL 5
The wind was blowing in the huge storm this day and the gusts were really strong. We decided to go check out some of the stuff inside the actual Canyonlands park. We saw a cool overlook:
TUESDAY APRIL 6
Since it was freezing and the wind was still blowing, the group decided dirt roads would be the best bet. We first went to see Fischer Towers. From the road it looked totally lame and I wasn't sure what made it so special. Well, it's a hike that takes you to the base of these MASSIVE towers that are sticking up out of nowhere. They had the funkiest shapes and seriously were enormous. The tallest one was 900 feet high. The hike itself was really cool too, lost of rocks and things to climb over.
Next we all took the Onion Creek road. It's a road that winds through this canyon
WEDNESDAY APRIL 7
Cory had to work today so we woke up early and headed home. We were both super bummed to be leaving, but at least we got to go. We always have a great time camping!!
