We headed out of Moab along the Potash road, heading West. The road was great fun to drive along with epic views where ever you looked.

We then drove up the Shafer trail into the Island in the sky district of Canyonlands National Park. The road was very rocky with loads of switchbacks on the final climb.

Tabernache trails

 

Once we had checked in, we then headed out to go for a ride at the Tabernache trail area. We rode Andys Loop which was great, but we ran out of daylight and finished in the dark.

As it was quite late we had dinner at Coco's a restaurant attached to the Holiday Inn - food was ok, but not great
