Well, the weather today was a bit iffy. I believe the term the National Park Service used was "unsettled." We had originally decided that we'd run Golden Spike, however, it was cold, raining, and we were still in search of some of our run-buddies. "Team Rockcrawler," as it had become known, was myself (TXJEEPER) with Rick Jones and Matias Benavidez in the Project TJ and Tim Kyle and his brother-in-law, "Lesbo" in the Voodoo Chile TJ.
After we went to the Spanish Trail Arena for registration and to pick up our information packets, we found our friend, Scott Argyle (along with his wife), who is a bit of a regular around the Moab area and knows the trails quite well. Scott was running one of his CJ-6s. He had his friend, Sean with him in his 1974 Land Cruiser FJ-40.
We decided that we'd run Fins and Things today. As the name describes, the trail is made up mostly of sandstone fins (slickrock) and other assorted "things" like sand. The entrance is right past the Sand Flats camping area and is right next to the Hell's Revenge trail.
