Weekly Photo Challenge – On the Way

Shafer Trail, Moab

Shafer Trail, Moab

Whether it’s hiking in our spectacular Colorado Rocky Mountains, taking a road trip or Jeeping a 4 x 4 road, most of the joy for me is the journey. Here is a shot of Canyonlands National Park and the upper part of Shafer Trail which goes from the top of the Islands in the Sky District to the Colorado River. For anyone with acrophobia (or maybe not even!), this upper part of the trail can be quite harrowing. Further down the trail, one encounters rockier terrain which required me to get out of the Subaru and spot Peter as he drove so we didn’t inadvertently leave our crank case in the canyon! But we made it unscathed – as did the car.

I’m very excited as I just recently purchased a new 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk which will get us safely over Shafer Trail and beyond!

    Given my distaste of heights, maybe I better skip the upper part of the trail. I’ll just enjoy your beautiful photo instead. 🙂

  7. Admittedly, I’m kind of stuck on green places, but your photos always make me want to go to these beautiful, red spaces. However, driving down that road…. I don’t see that happening! Oh my, even in that fabulous new Jeep. Mazel!

    Is that a ROAD down there? Just thinking of driving along that makes me queasy! Congratulations on the new vehicle! I’m delighted to hear it — I imagine that means we’ll be able to see images of many more adventures here!
