Today, Bill and Alan joined me to run Fin's & Thing's with me in my jeep. Dee offered to join us at about noon at the exit of the south loop.
We had been pretty fast through the south loop and had about 90 mins. left, before we wanted to meet with Dee.
We decided to run the lower leg pf Porcupine Rim and came right back to our meeting point, when Dee arrived.
She brought her friends Gay and Joe, who showed up in a very nice build rockcrawler.
Dee took the lead and 'raced' through the upper loop in Elliot. On the way, Joe had a problem with his transfer case and we decided to head out.
This was a great run. Thanks to all, who joined.
After being back at the pavement, we split off and drove Mini Lionsback, which was a nice addon.
Once more, a big thank you to Dee, Gay, Joe, Bill and Alan for joining me.

Today we did some exploring. We went up Long Canyon and explored then some side trails, which eventually lead to the rim of Four Arch Canyon.
At the end of the second trail, we had been able to spot one of the arches in Four Arch Canyon, which I did not see last year, when I was running Four Arch Canyon trail.

Sunday was our last trip day together with Wayne and Mike.
Mike wanted to see again the indian watch tower, close to Soap Creek Tank.
We went in a different route than usual and drove to Moquitch Tank.
After some exploring there, we went to Pinnacle Valley and used the shortcut.
After crossing Pinnacle Valley, we went up towards Soap Creek Tank.
We skipped 'The Beehives' and drove to the watch tower.
After having lunch, we climbed up on the tower and explored the ruins.
We skipped also Soap Creek Tank and a phenomenal overlook there, as we planned to be back at the pavement at 4pm.
Thanks to Wayne and Mike for joining us for 4 days and thanks to Shane, Lou and Levy for coming with us to the southwestern overlooks.

Our saturday run was going up to Middle Reservoir via Big Sink Valley. We stopped at the Brain Rocks in Big Sink and had lunch at Middle Reservoir.
After lunch, we started to search for an old, pretty unused trail and finally found that trail.
We drove to Lynn Tank and enjoyed the colorful vicinity.
From there we went into Bush Head Valley and stopped at the ranch.
A road brought us via Horse Ridge to Shed Valley.
We stopped at Shed Valley Tank and explored the area.
After this, we went out to House Rock Valley Road.

Five Mile Mountain Road, Paria Plateau, UT

When driving from Kanab, UT towards the House Rock Valley Road, Delorme Topo always suggested to take a shortcut via Five Mile Mountain Road. In 2008 we thought, we will give it a try. Five Mile Mountain Road is an easy gravel road, which starts from US89 and connects to HRVR.

The map at the bottom of the page shows the trail, we were driving and the Delorme Topo version.

The trail starts very easy on a higher plateau:
