Very cool ride report. I'll have to check out that dirt road next time I'm in Zion.

I ended up making some changes on the fly - the Charles Hall Ferry wasn't open yet so I ended up having to take the long way around (but that's how I discovered Natural Bridges Monument.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be glad to help.

Nice ride report. I've ridden to many of the locations, including Best Friends and Ho-Made Pies (Thunderbird), but you've uncovered some great off-road trails as well. Was in Titus last month. Looks like gas was $0.02 cheaper at Panamint Springs on your visit

Will do mate! Planning a TAT trip for this summer, but afterwards I know I'll be looking for somewhere to go in the spring. :) Back in 2010 I rode the KLR out to Moab to ride the White Rim Trail, I'm learning through this site that I blew right past a lot of cool places in the process. Still had a blast, but I definitely need a revisit. :) Were you using the Indian Country Map as well?

Sorry for the double post.

No worries, post away! Like you noted, this site teaches you a lot about the things you'd normally ride right by. I wasn't using the map, unfortunately - seems like I'll need to grab one for the next trip. I typically plan routes in google maps and then move it to my Garmin Zumo.

Nice trip!

I miss the SW!

Have you got any more pics of that truck and semi off of the Moki Dugway?

It is amazing that you went all the way around Lake Powell without even one picture.

I guess I'm just not much of a lake guy.

As you asked, here's a few more of the truck and semi:

Have to look closely for the truck in this one:

Thanks! Nice shots.

It is amazing that someone would crawl down there and strip those vehicles out.

Accommodations?

Did you hotel it, camp, or both?

Thanks

txplants - Hotel the entire way. It approached 30 degrees at night when I was in Utah, and I don't enjoy camping unless it's quite warm outside. Why do you ask?

No worries - I'd love to see more! You've got a great looking Forester. Is it the XT model?
