Jeep Safari

This gallery shows what one sees when entering Moab from the north and driving through
town late in the day. The quality of these shots is nothing to rave about, but I hope
they convey a bit of presence to viewers.

Note all the Jeeps, other off-road vehicles, and trailers for transporting same: I
arrived during the 2006 Jeep Safari, a week-long event every spring in which the town
is overrun with all manner of off-road vehicles with big knobby tires, roll cages,
and heavy-duty jacks attached to roof racks. The closest I got to the spirit of this
event was to use four-wheel drive once, briefly, in a rented Nissan Pathfinder.

These pictures were taken in 2006.
