As we are preparing the Lolita for travel I hear the revving of engines and notice that the Jeeps are gathering for their morning run. Normally when I here the road of engines or gathering of people I want to move as far away as fast as I can go.
But the Jeepers haven't been a problem at all up to this point although the busiest time for Jeep Safari will happen after we leave. I must say the Safari organizers have done an excellent job of making the impact minimal. I haven't seen vehicles off road except on marked trails and they have been respectful of others regarding noise. I wish all ORV drivers were as considerate as the ones I have experienced this last week. They would find themselves more welcome in sharing our great outdoors.
The sign gives me a chuckle.... I'm not going through an unknown surface or puddle with 'surprises' with my tow vehicle.... after all in addition to 4 wheel adventures, Hoss (my trusty truck) hauls my little home from place to place).
So Not Worth the Risk!
Rain the day before left puddles to another camping loop underwater. I have thought of the desert as so thirsty that when a rain comes it would soak right in, however the crusty ground forms a hard surface that water either sits on or runs off causing flooding. Not always a safe place to be, so it is imperative to be aware of your surroundings at all times. The desert has many lessons to teach me for sure!
We viewed the Wilson Arch from the pullout from the Highway heading south from Moab. How wonderful to view another arch from the comfort of the truck. These weary feet deserve a rest today.
How precious is each bloom in the desert.
Wait until you see
