One of the striking things in this (as well as others) pic is how green the vegetation was this year compared to other years. It is a deep green, suggesting plenty of moisture to date.

Yet we had (arguably) the best weather for a Cruise Moab ever. No rain, no snow, the temps were above freezing and below eighties for the most part. And While we have had other Cruise Moabs with the above conditions, they were typically accompanied by gale force winds.

Not so this year, we had a couple of little squalls that lasted at most a couple of minutes.

While the the cotton was in full bloom, the caterpillars were really minimal. The cottonwoods in Slickrock are both a blessing and a curse. Sure, the cotton itself ranges from annoying to deal breaker depending on your tolerance for it, but the shade is the reason they are there.

I agree with Tom that the back row parties weren't as big as year's past, but then again, I didn't get any complaints about them as I have every year for many years.

For the record, we didn't fill up, we were around 20-30 short depending on how you define it. But that's fine, I think we had another good event and most went home happy. And that's really all I care about.

I had a mouse run out of my tent when I set it up to clean Sunday night. Then I used my leaf blower on the cotton.

Agreed

One of my favorite 60's. Gary and I try to meet up with our 60's every year. it's a proffit-built monster of a 60.

Default Must keep thread alive...

Come on peeps I know you have more to contribute to this tread.

Shawn you were certainly missed this year, Maybe next year we could organize some sort of 60s only run. If others can be elitist Toyota snobs, so can we.

Any ways back to pics, Here are a couple from my solo run out to Chicken Corners on Wednesday.

I don't have a lot of great action shots. Here are few from Dome Plateau on Saturday. Including the obligatory shot of Gary's 60.
