We left Robert, Pat and Dane to work on getting Robert a new fuel pump while the rest of us ran Chicken Corners. There wasn't anything we could do to help, and hopefully Robert and Dane would be back from Moab by the time we returned from the trail.
Everyone had a good time in the sandy stretch at the start, going fast and sliding around. We stopped at the overlook at the big parking area to get out and enjoy the views. It was a little chilly, surprisingly, but it was still really nice. The sun was out from time to time, and we were all enjoying it on our pale skins.
We went through the narrow section and parked at the far end next to the hike. Most of the people in the group hiked around Chicken Corners to the far side and back, though some of the group stayed behind. When everyone was back, we broke for lunch.
Lunch in Moab is always nice, and this was no exception. We sat around, chatting and catching up. We even saw a couple of speedy boats down on the river, and that looked like it would be a lot of fun and a great trip. There was a lot of water in the river this year.
A couple of Jeeps and a few ATVs joined us in two separate groups, so it was time to pack up and go while we could still get out. We headed back for Robert's Jeep and found them back there, just starting to get to work on the fuel pump. They also bought a floor jack, so hopefully that would make things a bit easier. Robert had a full tank of gas.
We left them yet again to go do Jackson Hole, hoping that when they finished they would meet us on the trail. If we didn't see them, we'd head back to where they were.
