On Tuesday morning I went on the official NAXJA trail group on Strike Ravine which was lead by Alex. The group consisted of 20 XJ's, and even though it was a larger group, we managed to make good time on the trail. This was my first time on Strike Ravine, and I'm glad I went with the group, because it would be a difficult trail to follow on my own. There are a number of roads and trails that intersect in this area, so I might need to head back another time and do some more exploring. I volunteered to tailgun this trail for Alex, so most of my pictures are from the back of the group.

Part of our group stopped at the trailhead

Slowed to a stop waiting for everyone to ascend Big Ugly Hill

After making it back to the highway with plenty of daylight left, a few of us decided to take a smaller group and head up to the overlook on Moab Rim. I have tried Moab Rim before, and because of my fear of heights, I had never made it to the overlook. I am now happy to report that I have got over my fear of heights and was able to make it to the top :)

It turned out to be another great day of wheeling and exploring!
