Fall Moab Trip - St. George Jeepers

Date of Event: 
10/16/2017 - 12:30pm to 10/19/2017 - 6:00pm

Mark your calendars for Monday October 16, through Thursday October 19 - 4 nights. We are planning an awesome Jeep Trip to Moab, Utah. As always, we will have 2 trail rides per day: 1. moderate, 2. difficult. 

For Hotel Reservations phone Quality Inn, (formerly Sleep Inn), on the South end of town:  (435) 259-4655. Make sure to tell them you are part of the St. George Jeep Group. Only then will you get a room for $125.00/night. I have reserved 24 rooms on the first floor, and I think there are 14 remaining. If these rooms fill up, you can book on the second floor, depending on hotel space. There is no elevator. Each room has a small refrigerator, and breakfast is included. Lunch sandwiches can be purchased each morning at the Chevron Station Deli down the road on the same side of the street. For those wanting to stay in RV Parks, please look on line to make reservations.

Friday, October 20:
Check out at your leisure, and head back to St. George on your own or with others who want to travel with you. It is very pretty to go by way of Mexican Hat, Monument Valley and Glen Canyon Dam. Also, it is interesting to go by way of Natural Bridges, to Hanksville, Capital Reef, Torrey and home. Both of these routes are considerably longer than taking I-70 to I-15.
