Wedding, Part 18: Tuesday—Climbing

Tuesday morning, we headed towards Morning Glory Canyon again to do some climbing. F and I were anxious to do some more free exploring like we’d done briefly in the Cable Arch area. We parked at Morning Glory and walked back east on the road looking for a place to pop out on top.

It took a few minutes but we finally found a crack that looked like it would “go.” The rock was pretty crumbly but we all made it up to the top without incident. We all enjoyed our time scrambling around.

We found ourselves in some difficult spots but still had a great time. After eating lunch on top with views to Behind the Rocks, out to Canyonlands and Arches, and down to the Colorado, we hiked out via the Moab Rim jeep trail. (The big rainstorm rushing in from the west complete with lightning was enough to keep us all moving quickly!)
