I have missed out on the Vernal Rock Rally the past couple of years and pretty bummed out about it because I haven't wheeled there since the competition days in the early 2000s. Luckily I have a good friend Matt (UPNO4 here with the silver stretched LJ) who has been there twice this year. We put together a quick trip to Vernal last weekend with my son Eric (tan JKU), Matt's son Jake (dark blue LJ), and another buddy Dave (silver/black JKU). I had heard a lot about Docs Beach and had pretty high expectations for the trail. All I can say is it lived up to, and far exceeded my expectations. Steep climbs, crazy drops, and lots of off camber are what Vernal is all about. Of course the poser shot in the cave is always a great photo op. I was blown away at how beautiful the area is and the cool temps were awesome.
