This past Easter I enjoyed a 4,000 mile driveabout to Arizona and Utah. I flew into Denver, Colorado to pick up my JK from Trail Jeeps in Golden who had upgraded my front Dana 44 with sleeving, gussets, and stronger knuckles, They also installed dual batteries, and ARB air Compressor, vent lines to the axles, transmission and transfer case and also some miscellaneous electrical items.

I visited Arizona to strike a few items off my bucket list which included the Antelope Canyons, The Toroweap/Tuweap area of the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelley, Rainbow Bridge and also managed a couple of other side trips. 

This was followed by the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. I had impinged a nerve in my spine by slipping on ice while walking my dog just before leaving which I had severely irritated with several arduous hikes in Arizona. I did not spend much time visiting the usual EJS fun spots and spent more time in breweries with good old Dave C. from Illinois. We spent a couple of days wheeling around Moab, one of which was a great drive up to Dry Wash Trail which is accessed via the Arches National Park. We ended up have lunch on a very high bluff overlooking the Colorado River and the LaSal Mountains. I also did two official EJS Trails - The new JaxTrax Trail and Elephant Hill Trail in Canyonlands national Park. This trail had also been on my bucket list for some time.
