Snoopy Travels Kansas Colorado Utah

Moab, Utah Trip...November, 1999
[Kansas, Colorado & Utah]

Now you get to come along with Snoopy
We "be-jeeping" now!!!


Snoopy Travels Kansas Colorado Utah

Snoopy is the first to cross Dirty Devil River in a number of years...The crossing looks easy, but one has to take "care".  Water can get into the engine, transfer case, differentials, etc.  If such happens; then you have a major problem(s).  AAA does not make house calls in this part of the country.  You ride in and walk out, and it's L O N G walk back to Hanksville...

At this time "things" are not looking good for Snoopy...Thanks to the ARB Lockers front and rear differentials, plus a 9,000 lb Warn Winch, Snoopy was able to get out of this one!!!

Minus four star dinning...told you this is not New Orleans...Just think of the money that has been spent on Snoopy so we can eat like this...

Worth every cent!!!  Dirty Devil River in the back ground...This is the area where Butch Cassidy and his gang found refuge...the rugged canyon country of "Roberts' Roost"...

Yep, in the background you can see the way "out" of the canyon...

Out and on our way...ONLY to find this, we made it across this wash out.  Six foot deep, this was only one of MANY to come, some of were much deeper...

Night fall is coming...what was fun, has now turned into WORK.  After over 38 miles of trail, we ran into a major landside area with boulders as large or larger than Snoopy.  We had to make the choice to return back through the area we worked so hard to travel all day.  Only this time it was a NIGHT, this only proved the point that there is no way that you can have too many lights on your Jeep...

Snoopy is out of harms way now, safe [tired, dusty at the motel]...the next page Snoopy visits the Maze area...
Quote from the National Parks "Only Adventurous and experienced travelers will want to visit this rugged land west of the Green and Colorado Rivers"...

We will find out if the National Park Service is correct...I can detect no concern in Snoopy's eyes, he looks like this is the place that he is looking for...
