With a name like Snaggletooth Trail, we should have known. But the easy road in the beginning, and the beautiful scenery, drew us in.
The Gambol Oaks above the canyon were gorgeous.
The road follows the Delores River with red rock cliffs on both sides.
The first hint of trouble was the overgrown bushes on the “road.”
But our fearless drivers pushed on, hypnotized by the beauty of it all.
Uh-oh! This does not look good! You would think we would turn around at this point, but not our guys...
The trail climbs above the river at this point over some seriously rocky road.
At times we had a choice of going over huge rocks or going off the cliff.
If you’re wondering why I’m not out there helping rebuild the road, it’s because my door would no longer open.
Now for the bad news - We had meant to go one way through the canyon and go home on paved roads. Unfortunately, after 5 miles of terrible rocks, we met some ATVers who said we wouldn’t be able to get through some narrow sections down the way. So we had to turn around and do it all again!
Now for the better news - Phil is really good at auto body repair - this is not his first time - and already has most of the damage repaired.
