I would appreciate it.

Heres the view from near Candlestick at sunrise. Its really cool to watch/listen to the water fowl fly up and down the river.  So serene!

Candlestick reminds me of spending the night on Mineral Point several miles up Green River about 8 years ago.  It was dead calm, and dead silent.  The most peaceful night I have ever spent.  This is at the NW entrance to White Rim trail.  Actually went out on the point by accident when I took the wrong turn looking for the trail.  It was almost dark, so just spent the night.  Had planned to camp down on the river by the trail entrance, which is the last picture, looking at mineral point.

That's AMAZING! We lived in Sierra Vista, AZ for 15 years, but we never made it up to Moab. During the time period that I was building my 85' Toyota "Truggy" we always talked about making it there, but never did.

Its still there! A little more crowded...esp in the Spring, but fun times can still be had.

But, it sounds like you're further away now.

Welcome!

This thread is mostly just us old, older, very old, extremely old, older than dirt, and guys who were on the Ark.........in which all us think and live like we are still 17. 

I reccomend scrolling through this entire thread, if nothing else for the awesome pictures and funny stories, and of course the funny arguements.  There's a regional section that can be found on the main forum page that should have your area.  Again, welcome!

Very true! Actually, we do our grocery shopping in St. Georges, Quebec, Canada if that gives you any idea of how remote we are. We're so far back in the woods, we have to pipe in sunshine.

Way back we were on a family station wagon camping trip to Mt. Katahdin (sp) early evening searching for a camp spot and a bull Moose comes tromping out of the dense woods and stops in front of us, stare down style. Dad backs up, Moose steps up with him. Repeated 2 or 3 times. Finally Dad says our Falcon is no match for this and punches it swerving around the moose and down the road we go. I've had couple of other encounters since.

Same question every time, how do they get that big rack through dense forest so easily?

2 summers ago in Colorado I had a female chase me down a trail due to the fact that she had 2 little ones near by. I didn't even know she was chasing me but my son got it on video.

I have no idea, but we find moose sheds all the time. Have you ever seen one covered in ticks? it's absolutely disgusting. We have winter ticks here and some moose will have thousands of ticks on them.

#199 would be a light trail ride for guys like Jarvis.  They live in a different world than we do.

Probably true but it is one of the toughest trails that I have ever been on and I didn't complete it It has a skinny ridge that is just wide enough for a bike and either side is a sheer cliff and it goes for at least 75  to a 100 yards and it is full of rocks that you have to climb over and the hill climbs are terrible rock and root infested and steep as they come.

Well you're probably a lot faster than me lol.

Not likely. A shorter duration ride is my concession to age and, lack of, physical conditioning.
