Took a quick 3 day weekend trip out with my coworker. Stopped at Cisco for the night and then headed on in. Stopped at Potash road by the Indian writing. Hiked up to Corona Arch, flew the drone around, drank a few beers. My coworker took a timelapse with his gopro under the arch.

We then headed up Poison spider late in the day, got up to the wedge before deciding we only had an hour of light left and wanted to find a campsite. Turned around and headed back towards Corona Arch and camped at the BLM campground there.

I paint hands on my vehicle when I'm passing through town at matrimony spring, its a tradition of mine to place some red handprints on during the trip:

I got Matt to do the same:

Day 2:

After camping at the BLM campground we ran into town and the got traditional breakfast of fried chicken and cinnamon rolls to be shared on the trail. Pulled up to the trailhead, pounded a few beers, ate the chicken and cinnamon roll, and started climbing to funnel arch.

Funnel arch is a small arch right off kane creek road, its a very shot hike but has lots of vertical ascent, including one particularly hard wedge to climb up.

Image

Apparently from this saddle you can hike up above the arch and climb a fin all the way back to overlook moab!

This rock is just off kane creek road, called "birthing scene" rock. Has a ton of petroglyps on it.

Image

Image

Notice the #moab on the left? MOTHER FUCKER I WILL BEAT YOU IF I SEE YOU DO THAT.

Left that area and drove out to mineral bottom to make camp for the night.

Very cool.
I took the family on a trip through Moab/Arches back in Dec '14.

Didn't get to spend nearly enough time there. I really want to go back.

Here are a couple pics.
