Moab 2015 Adventure – BFE and Kane Creek

Last day in Moab, we decided to do a scenic trail and take it easy. We also didn’t want to break any jeeps before we head back. What we didn’t know was the surprises waiting for us. My jeep was going to be ready around noon. So we decided that we would go and play around area BFE in the morning. Area BFE is a private land where you could play around with optional donation. It was a wet day and none of us knew what to expect on a wet, snowy and muddy day in Moab. It was ok to play on the rocks with less traction. We are used to that from BC anyways. But Moab mud proved itself to be an extreme challenge. Driving on Moab Mud was like driving on ice. It is a very fine soupy and sticky mud. If you walk in it, you start carrying 10lbs of mud under each feet after a few steps. If you drive on it, it is so fine and soupy that you get no traction. Once you get it on your tires, good luck trying to crawl over rocks. So we all experienced a different kind of wheeling that day.

After we picked my jeep, we started heading towards Kane Creek. The muddy road was a bitch. We weren’t having fun at all. But then we started heading down to flat area that put us on one of the most fun trails of my life. It was a combination of zig zaging across Kane creek with sandy and curvy bits in between. It was like a roller coaster ride. Curve to the left and curve to the right and down into creek and up on the road. It goes on and on. 50 something creek crossings on a fun trail. Just where it ends, we started climbing up this slippery road with 5 feet ledges on it. One side of the road was a wall cliff around 2000ft drop. The pucker factor was on highest level when the safe passes of some these ledges was on the cliff side. So in one day, our feelings changed from anger, hate, frustration, fun, extreme fun, scared to diaper needing. I must admit this was one of a kind day and possibly the best day of our trip.
