Turn left off of I-70 somewhere between Crescent Junction and Green River and drive off the pavement for about 10 miles. That was our next destination. We tried to call to make reservations, but there was no working number.
There was certainly plenty of room to stretch out.
And the views?!?!?
So many awesome rock formations, so little time.
I wasn’t sure what he’d think, but Fletcher really enjoyed the desert.
I should mention that White Wash Sand Dunes is a massive area that is totally open to off-roading in all of it’s forms. I mean, just look at the sign…it’s says OPEN!
Of course, I was pining for Ruby Jean like crazy. Maybe it was time to see what our mighty little Canyon could do!
Not bad at all! Certainly not bad for a fully stock truck designed to pull, pull, and pull some more! The various 4×4 modes handled everything we threw it them, and the low-ish clearance wasn’t an issue. I even gave Fletcher a turn at the wheel.
Little did I know that the Canyon would soon have a chance to show what it’s really capable of. But before we get to that, let’s settle down by the fire and enjoy an evening in the desert.
Rest up folks, ’cause there’s a storm a brewin’… Like, for real.
