Moses and Zeus are rock spires in Taylor Canyon near Moab. In order to get to the spires we had to take the Mineral Bottom Trail, decend the switchbacks to the White Rim Trail and after traveling 5 or so miles to Taylor Canyon Trail. The spires are found about another 5 miles up canyon to a dead end. Along with my sons Ron and Bob, we explored the Moses and Zeus spires after a short hike. It was hot that day in Taylor Canyon, bring plenty of water. The scenery of the area was breathtaking, the views half way up the spires down canyon were some of the best I've witnessed. What a day trip!
