small map Moab, Utah, is a town well-known among people who enjoy extreme sports. Located between Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, it is a mecca for mountain bikers, river runners, rock climbers, and four-wheelers. Several trails have been marked over the slickrock and graded by difficulty. The highlight of the year for the 'jeepsters' is the annual Jeep Safari held in April.

In March 2003, Andy and some of his friends made a pre-rally trip to Moab to check out the trails and to check the fitness of their jeeps. Andy took the photos on this page.
