Great trip report and locations, Myron. The road description reminds me of back in the day in Moab, UT and the Lionsback challenge. Unfortunately, because of injuries, etc. Lionsback access is closed and will live in memories.

Thanks for sharing - love the story and the pics. Can't wait to get there someday ourselves. Although I can't imagine that we'll be brave enough to take our trailer!

Great story telling Myron and well done on doing the dreaded, by some, Moki Dugway.

What I liked about going uphill was that it made it easier to stop on the "right" side of the road for photos. I'm glad we did it. I'd have hated to have taken advice on not doing it and then wondered it we could have done it.

Man! I can't wait... for August to get here. I have Monument Valley, Gooseneck, Moki Dugway and Valley of the Gods all lined up after a R2R2R hike. But hell no I'm not towing the camper over those stretches... Just going to bite the bullet and stay at Gouldings CG.

Thanks Myron -- I was eating lunch and started to read the NYTimes but decided not to get depressed and turned to Escape. My jaw dropped at those pictures. Thanks so much!

Thought I'd better add a comment lest it be inferred from my earlier post that I was criticizing Myron's route. Au contraire! I truly believe in pushing the envelope beyond one's comfort zone, especially at my age. Time is running out...so just get out there and do it. Myron just happened to push the envelope over the edge (figuratively) for me and it gave me heart thumps to read his story. Thank you, Myron for a workout today!

Makes me want to get a "sliding" 5th wheel hitch if I ever wanted to traverse that route....as always, great pictures and trip report, Myron

"...I can't believe you did that!! ... I wondered how we were going to get around or up them. But then we came to The Road from Hell...."

Not to worry, Karen, no critical inferences perceived. Besides, "especially at my age," and, "I can't believe you did that" and etc., etc., are comments I love hearing. They are what keep our bones feeling young. Ron, I had read your early thread references to going up the Moki and they are exactly what put the place on my radar.
