Great report, beautiful pics.

Only problem was I kept changing my desktop image!

It's a great topic for discussion, but the participants need to act mature.

cut off a section of the trail to make up for it
(don't throw rocks at me). I'll discuss more later.

I'll come back tomorrow and continue on the trail (I rode thru
Arches NP as part of the first day back on the trail).

Thats excactly the way we went ! The Potash Rd into Canyonlands then up the Shaefer Switchbacks. This should be incorperated into the TAT.

Highjack on:

Better yet, once in the park and at the intersection where you would turn right for the switchbacks, turn left instead and loop around the White Rim Trail (Be sure to stop and check out Musselman Arch). About 80 miles later it takes you back to Highway 313 a bit north of where the switchbacks would have led you...

I camped at Dead horse point state park just outside of Moab....a fantastic campground. I think I must have been looking down on this Potash loop...I took these pictures from the campground:

Canyon Lands and Arches at Sunset

After I got to the top of the Rim I rode out to the end of the Road
at Canyonlands and took a few more pics, then took the
road back to Arches and got there just in time for a few pics at
sunset before going back into Moab for the evening.

From the top of the rim around the Park Headquarters.

Out at the end of the road. The road below is one of the rim rides
I would take if you have time, about 100 miles. Would take 1/2 day
at least.

Some jeep down there taking the drive.

Arches NP is right about 5 mile outside of Moab on the way back
from Canyonlands. Had just enough to get in a few shots before sunset.
If you are coming into Moab on the trail at eveninig and
are planning on heading out back on the trail in the morning,
if you have time I would say
ride up to and into Arches NP for at least 10 miles to see it at sunset.

Vigil at Sunset.

Destert Flowers always amazed me.

Sun Fortress. What a way to watch the sunset in reverse.

Wow I just park it right here and watch the sunset.

Back into Moab for dinner.
Will Pack it all up in the
morning and set out back on the trail, but want to get an early start
and see some more of Arches on the way out. (I have to see at least one Arch!)
