Default Summer/fall trip

We are, as usual, re-arranging and altering our trip plans on an hourly basis. We had originally planned to pass through Denver and stop at Yellowstone for a few days, and then drop down to watch John Finn and the Wabbit take on the Salt Flats. After that it was a week or so in Pahrump, Nevada at a friends and then off to the grand canyon North Rim.

Instead of the North rim we have scheduled to join the Birds of a Feather rally at the Grand Canyon Railway park starting September 26th. Our stops along the way to RATS don't allow time to take the BOF Moab trip after the Grand Canyon rally.

We have been to Yellowstone, albeit over 30 years ago, so we were thinking about dumping Yellowstone and going to Moab and Arches National Park on our own directly from Denver. But then we would likely not make it to the Salt Flats. (it would be a lot of extra miles for a little salted Wabbit.)

Help-do we do salted Wabbit or Arches National Park???

Tough call Gardner!
The races at B-ville are something to see if your a car guy,and this will be johns only trip out there to race,on the other hand Moab and Arches is a great place to visit too.
I would leave my options open,and watch the weather and then make the call.

Randy,
That's pretty good advice. We do keep an eye on the weather when traveling, so keeping that segment flexable might work out.

A real dilemma, We have made this trip many times, Glacier, Yellowstone, Tetons, Lake Powell, Glen Canyon Dam, . The highlights of the trip is always Canyon Lands, Moab, Arches, and the drive to the North Rim.

If you have a Jeep and like 4-wheeling, my vote would be Moab. Yvonne and I bought a book at the visitors center with all the popular 4X4 trails; had a blast exploring around and cant wait to go back...it will be even more fun with the group

Glad you will be making it out to the Canyon...see you there!

I always have my 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport in tow. Don't leave home without it.

We may try to make the Grand Canyon in Sept. and then Moab, but since we will on our way back from Alaska we'll be bloodshot, saddle sore and broke by then!! Semper Gumby - always flexible!! We'll have the CJ-5 with us also.

If you've never seen the North side of the Canyon you're in for a pleasand surprise. It is much prettier than the South side.
