Sorry for the slow posting but I finally got a chance to get to this.

I am no where the wordsmith of my fellow travelers so I will just post up some of the pics I took during the trip. This trip was a perfect example of why we decided to go with a pop-up TC and the company was excellent. Don Curley and his wife Janet did a SUPER job getting it all organized.

I would sure like to see it when that rock decides to head down hill. To put it in perspective the rock is the size of a building.

Great photos!

I can see what you folks meant about the narrowness of the trail in some parts. the "Heading down" photo real good example of this.

Beautiful scenery. Well done!

Hey Steve! Really good pictures! I missed washer woman, didn't even know she was there. Could have left a load of clothes for her. And what's that I see, a little bit of wet ground?! Almost mud I'm thinking. You guys have great looking rigs and only added to the scenery. Thanks for putting this pictures up here, never see enough...

Thanks for the photos. We've done part of the trail with a Jeep, no camper. Your pics make me want to go back.

I wish, it would've saved me $30 in quarters at the car wash. And I STILL came home with some red mud. LOL

Great shots Steve! It's sort of like going on the trip again through a different perspective.

Mad Norsky (et al) ... the fact is, essentially none of us got shots of the really narrow or really steep sections along the White Rim Trail. We were either too busy watching tire placement along cliff edges on one side versus camper clearance against rock walls on the other side, or, it was pedal-to-the-metal time in 4WLo to get your butt up the steep sections (some of which were pretty extended climbs). Neither situation fostered a, "gee, let me stop and take some shots of this", and in some cases, if you had opened your door to get out, you might find yourself exiting into mid-air and off a major drop-off or cliff). Definitely some "exciting" stuff from time to time on the WRT.

Thanks again Steve & Ben ... that was really a great trip with good company!

Thanks for the compliments.

Actually the trail shown in the "Heading down" pic is not even close to the narrowest portion of the trail. The pucker-factor for that pic came in due to the trail dropping sharply away at the start and thus not being able to see it over your hood

Unfortunately none of us got any pics of the really tight spots but picture an even narrower trail with a steeper drop off on one side and a straight up wall (with projecting rocks) on the other.
