Local TIP

As beautiful as the wilderness environs of Moab are, they can be very unforgiving. The desert’s mix of hot temperatures, rugged terrain and extraordinary remoteness, coupled with a dangerous mix of underestimating supplies and overestimating abilities, has created some unfortunate circumstances for a number of visitors. And sometimes, even after taking diligent precautions, the desert just has its way with the most prepared of adventurers.
