off road driving
Miner's Basin is a short spur trail off the La Sal Mountain Loop Road, just outside Moab. While Jeeping the loop road, me and my sons Ron and Bob, decided to do a little "panning for gold". The actual trail was fairly easy riding, then a short 0.5 mile hike down to the basin. The mountain glen was scenic, the mountain stream was ice cold. After about an hour of panning we had maybe $2 worth of gold. Not enough to pay for our trip, but memories to last a lifetime.
