Villian2000, I switched to a gasser because it's cheaper and easier to maintain and drive. Sure, I miss the diesel power, but the Hemi had plenty of power going over the continental divide. I use my truck as a daily driver, too, and the Cummins didn't like short trips in town very much. It loved to be worked hard.

Flytyer, I'm staying at Horsethief camp area (BLM land), 12 bucks a night, for the next week. It's close to Canyonlands, where I'm working on a project (website). It's not a bad place, but no water, elect, or dump station. Glad I have my generator.

More pics: One taken at the Green River Overlook, Canyonlands NP. Next, an Indian grainarie, hundreds of years old, just over the top of Little Aztec Mesa (yes, I climbed to the top!), and another of some of the local Canyonlands NP flora.

That is some beautiful country! You have some great photography skills as well Bill. Love to see camping pics from far away places. I hope when my wife and I retire we can do some traveling with a trailer and see some of these great spots.

I can beleive everything you said there. Especially about the maintainance. I'm sure that Hemi has plenty left while towing that 26 bh. BTW - great pics. I hope to see all that one day while traveling in our tt.

If you want to see that area around Moab in a different light find an old copy of Molly Ringwold's first film -"Spacehunter! Adventures in the forbiiden zone."

Early 80's, I spent 7 months in Moab. Youngish dolly grip at the time.

Pics. First is of petroglyphs in Moonflower Canyon up Kane Creek Road near Moab. Second is taken from a viewpoint near Grand View lookout, Canyonlands NP. Funny how the tree looks like a galloping horse, huh? Third is a pic of Schaeffer canyon, taken this morning at around 6AM. Wind was gusting about 50mpg, bout blew me off the canyon wall? LOL

More to come!!!

Having IPA and Hot Wings at the Moab Brewery right now. YUM!

I found this girl in my TT storage area (under the bed!) when cleaning things up this morning.


On a lighter note, here's a pic of Double Arch at Arches NP I took yesterday afternoon.

Wow, I wish we had THAT view when we see those little widows lurking around in our backyard! Glad you are enjoying the beauty there... sorry 'bout the spiders though!

BTW.. love Moab!
