Jeeping Hell's Revenge, Oh my!

Our son Roman is here visiting us for a couple of weeks. He has really turned into a fitness buff so he has a lot of things he wants to do while he is here. Yesterday we took him to hike the Moab rim trail. The last time Lisa and I did this it was in the lower 70's. Now it has warmed up and it was 90 yesterday. It nearly killed me. I started suffering from heat exhaustion. We had plenty of water but still.

So today we took him on a Jeep ride thru Hell's Revenge. I say we, not meaning Lisa and I because she didn't want any part of it. It is a 6 out of 10 Jeep trail. So she volunteered to work for Leyman so that he could take Roman and I.

Leyman has been Jeeping for 50 years so I felt very comfortable with him driving. In fact he knows so much about the trails here in Moab that when anyone asks us about them at the campground, we send to see Leyman.

It was another hot and sunny day here. I was glad we weren't hiking this. Lot's of people out on the trail. We went to the Colorado river overlook.

The views, like I have said many times before are spectacular.

Driving this trail didn't take very long. 3 hours. So the 3 of us drove back to town for a great burger at Milt's. It was a fun drive. Hiking it first sure helped me to know what to expect on this trail. No real surprises. Not even when we did the tip over challenge. Jeeps, I have to admit are amazing vehicles.

It is getting so hot out I have to have many frosty one to stay hydrated.

  2. He is going to run us ragged with all the stuff he wants to do. Moving onto Zion and Bryce today for more fun and frolic.

  3. Yikes, it sounds as though he may run you guys into the ground! Remember Dino, you are no spring chicken any more. Have fun with your son but stay out of the heat!

  4. Mentally I see myself at his age but physically my body says I am just a little bit older. I am working on the next post of everything we have done in the last 2 weeks. Stay tuned
