Apr 14 – Moab, UT (Golden Spike)

Overslept so I missed the Golden Spike group this morning. Unfortunately the route to Golden Spike is closed off at the Poison Spider entrance. so I took the day off today to rest up for the three remaining days of trails.

I visited the petroglyphs on the side of the road by the river. Hard to believe rock climbers are crawling up so close to these precious artifacts. I know Utah is serious about conservation.

The local Red Rock Crawlers scheduled their annual Hell’s Revenge night ride, so I joined them. It was exciting and scary. The best part was watching a couple dozen Jeeps send it on Hell’s Gate without any spotters! They climbed fast and didn’t make any mistakes. Definitely a great event!
