We were in Bull Canyon with some daylight, then we played in the sand as the sun went down. After Metal Masher and Gemini Bridges it was a long day but a fun one. We all left a little bit sandier than we were when we went in.
We hurried down to the end of the canyon so we could see Gemini Bridges before the sun went down. We got there with a little bit of daylight left and found ourselves in the bottom of a big box canyon.
Bob S. and Steve both climbed up in a hole in the rock. They made it down safely and we all breathed a sigh of relief.
Steve had family visiting so he didn't stay to play in the sand. Bob R. also left, and Wayne thought we had all gone so he followed Steve out. That left the rest of us to play on the sand hills as the sun set.
Bob S. and Eric were playing in the sand and both ended up hitting a tree with the sides of their windshield frames. Eric escaped without any damage but Bob S. managed to dent and scrape his frame up pretty well.
We found a hill with particularly deep sand near the far wall. Monica tried it a dozen times, digging herself deep into the sand at the top and throwing sand into her Jeep. It took a lot more momentum to make it, and when she gave it more gas it was an easier hill.
Bob S. came around a corner, then backed up a bit to bend his rear drivers-side shock all the way forward. He had jumped a big sand hill and lost his mount. He got rid of the shock with plans to fix it in the morning.
Bob S. made it up the sand hill minus a shock, then Ladd made it. Eric played and didn't have enough speed, getting buried at the top. The rooster tails of sand were flying into his Jeep, burying everything in sand. It was a mess but it was a blast!
These have to be some of the best sand hills in Moab and they are well worth the trip. The scenery is also amazing. It was a great end to a great day!
