Easter Jeep Safari 2017
This year was much warmer than last year and much less crowded than the 50th Safari was, last year. Â Probably the best one Iâ€™ve been to, myself. Â There were tons of events over the 9 days. Â Tuesday, Quadratec hosted theirÂ 8th Annual BBQ.Â Wednesday evening was the RR4W clubâ€™s Associates dinner, for those of us that are members of both clubs. Â Thursday and Friday was the vendor show and Friday night was the big raffle. Â Saturday was Big Saturday and was capped off with our potluck at Canyonlands Campground. Â Easter Sunday, we had our traditional run. 15 jeeps went into Bull Canyon and looked up at the Gemini Bridges. Â From there we split into 2 groups: members wanting an easier end of the day went back up and looked at the Gemini Bridges from the top, while those wanting more of a challenge went on toÂ Little Canyon, and then the end of Gold Bar Rim. Â Overall, it was a great week with many winning big, and few breakdowns.
