I thought I would share a little of my experience with the usually non-technical sections of the Gemini Bridges to Shafer Trail to Potash Road loop outside of Moab in Canyonlands NP. We were there a couple days after a heavy rain, and the areas in the shade of the uphill cliff were still slick mud. At one point, approaching a downhill switchback in 4WD low at about 5 mph in a rented jeep, we slid about 10 inches forward and 3 to the side in that slop before the tires regained traction. I included a view looking back up at those switchback from the road beyond.
Had I fully appreciated that the whole freakin’ thing was a rock slide, I would have had my heart in my throat the whole time, not just during the brief slippage.
When I told the Jeep rental guy about it and said they might not want to call it “easy” if it has rained recently, his face blanched, literally.
