Re: Gooseberry does white rim in Moab

ok this is the start going in on Shafer.


and this is what my mom did most the way down


this the river overlook


its almost illegal being able to drive this road.


mom at the overlook


camp and trying to use SMB as a wind block.


Rainbow pic at camp


Did you know that 8 people can eat in a RB30 layout?


cool shot looking through a hole on a rock bridge


Gooseberry at Gooseberry trail



almost to white crack



we did not camp at Whitecrack due to the storm comming in and the exsposure of being out on the point.
so we pressed on.


this is heading up to Murphys



The storm let up and wow the views.





then after potato butt I tried my nerves a little.





then the exit of the park and the Road get nice.




then we get to the Switchbacks. The snow was ok and being the first on it the traction was pretty good but the concrete spots with snow and ice had me on nerves a little but did not spin a tire once.

With that weather, I bet Dave was wishing he had brought his teardrop along.
