Moab, Utah 2017, Part 2 - Onion Creek, Fisher Towers, Dome Plateau
Ok back to the afternoon of the first day. We headed off to the Dome Plateau Trail just on the west side of the Dewey Bridge. It was a 30-mile trail, but as we got started it was clearly evident that the trail was more technical than I had anticipated and trying to traverse the 30 miles with what remained in the afternoon was not going to be feasible. We stopped off at overlook and hiked around. Tom had some binoculars and we were able to see an eagle with a rabbit that it had just killed for food (sorry no pictures) and ravens surrounding it trying to steal some food. Here are some images from the afternoon adventure.
On Day 2 we took a leisurely ridge along the Onion Creek Road. This road is a relaxing drive through a deep-cut canyon with distinctive rock formations, like Totem Pole Tower. There are a number of creek crossings along the road and one area called Stinking Spring where you get an aroma in the air that smells like onions, thus why the creek is named Onion Creek. Here are some of the image from the drive.
More images to come in Part 3 as I finish up this adventure.
