    White Rim Trail, Moab

    We spent two days on the White Rim Trail! It was an awesome trail... Come prepared because there are long rocky stretches, deep sand, steep climbs, skinny trails, and no rescue/recovery for more than 100 miles. Also, you must have a permit as there is limited access/usage.
