"Be prepared to self-rescue"; those were the words of advice from the park ranger at Hans Flat when we made our back-country reservations for three days and two nights of riding, hiking and camping in and around Ernie's Country, south of The Maze, Canyonlands National Park.
The plan was to trailer two WR250R's from Baton Rouge, pick up my son who was flying into Albuquerque, drive to Moab and spend 8 days riding in SE Utah, camping and hiking, before heading back home.
Video summary of trip:
Day 1: Albuquerque. Had 8 extra hours waiting for my son's delayed plane, so rode around the Sandia Mountains:
