2021 Spring Adventure Recap
Hole in the Rock Trail, UT
May 17-21, 2021
On this adventure, we had six 4×4 vehicles: 2 Jeep Gladiators, 1 Jeep Wrangler TJ Unlimited, 1 classic 1974 Ford Bronco, and 2 Jeep Wrangler JKUs. We explored Southeastern Utah. We saw several ancient ruins and petroglyphs, culminating in 3 days on the famous Hole in the Rock trail. We also camped out under the stars and had some epic, gourmet-style camp meals!
Here are some notes on this adventure from participant Wayne Bennett. More photos from this awesome adventure follow.
Day 1, 4Xploring Spring Adventure 2021. Hidden Anasazi cliff dwelling, Comb Ridge shelf road and Arch Canyon highlighted the day.
Day 2 of 4Xploring Spring Adventure. Route from Arch Canyon to Hall’s Crossing. Great scenery and another ancient ruin to explore.
4Xploring Spring Adventure days 3, 4, & 5 – Hole in the Rock trail. This legendary trail is or should be on the bucket list for every serious 4-wheeler. Blazed by the Morman Pioneers to create a shortcut from Escalante to Bluff throug wild,rough, inhospitable country over the winter of 1879-80. Even our best built Jeeps cannot negotiate sections that their wagons did over 140 years ago. But the sections we could and did follow were exhilarating!
