Rubicon/Moab/Ouray Trifecta

Post by jpet » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:57 pm

Hi all,

Just thought I'd share some of my adventures last week out west. I met a group of flatty friends and we did the Rubicon trai. On the way back we stopped in Moab for a day and then Ouray.

Rubicon:








Moab:


Ouray:



Ouray is my favorite landscape in the world. I've done Black Bear / Imogene 5 times in the last 4 years but this is the first time I did them in the rain. Kinda special.

Awesome videos! Looks like you had a great time. The roll over almost looked like it was in slow motion. Can't wait to chat about it in person. Someday I will take a trip like that.

We left Friday morning the 27th. One of the jeeps came from Virginia and met me at my house the night before. We made it to the Loon Lake entrance Sunday afternoon (29th) and started into the trail. Camped and Ellis Creek Sunday night. The guy in the prototype 3B “X98” is from New York. He met us at the Loon Lake entrance. Monday morning we made it to Rubicon Springs for camp and We were off the trail by Tuesday noon. Drove back to our trailers, loaded up and headed to Moab. Got to Moab on Wednesday night. Did Hell’s Revenge Thursday. We started early because by the time we got off the trail it was 105 degrees. Trailered up and headed to Ouray. Did the Black Bear/Imogene loop on Friday. It rained on us all the way up to the BB summit and then fog and scattered rain off and on. I didn’t mind it because I have done those trails several times but never in the rain. Made it back home 4 am Sunday morning. Wish I could meet you guys at Badlands this weekend but I gotta catch up on my honeydo list. Hope to see some of you at the Willys Reunion in Fulton. Thx 4 watching.

That is a lot of miles for that short of a time!
How many miles total?
