    Colorado River and western Grand Canyon

    Reloader, Jason and I joined up with some friends that planned an outing to Diamond Creek Road, starting in Peach Springs, AZ. It's a graded road and you only need 2WD to explore, but it's got great scenery and it takes you right to the Colorado River. The stopping point is actually one of the rafting exit points and I talked to a group of guys that had been on the river for 15 days, and 226 miles.

    Peach Springs is about 3 hours north of Phoenix and Diamond Creek Road is 20 miles each way, or about 3 hours round trip.

    Here's some of the group shortly after we started on the road.


    Scenery keeps improving

    Looks like a good time. I'd bet your H3 has more miles of adventures on it than any other on the planet by this point.

    It's a great trip for sightseeing without needing any built up vehicle. I almost took my Silverado that day.

    Several trails/dirt roads like this in Moab, including Gemini Bridges. In Ouray/Telluride, Last Dollar Road has great scenery as well as the Alpine Loop. Buy the Wells books at funtreks.com to help you scout places to go.
