Highlights

Highlight: Reid Nielson Draw
This is a quick and easy shortcut to get you to the other side of I70 after you exit on 131 off of I70. There are width and height issues at the underpasses, so be cautious as you approach. In just a short while, you will be at Nielsen Dugway leading to Fix It Pass or Cane Wash, or you can jog over to the west and hit Devil's Racetrack.

Mapping Crew - Utah

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, he's only been off-roading since he was 16 but fell in love immediately. He attended college in Denver for Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management and wheeled in Colorado for 4 years, but ended up moving back home to Salt Lake City. He currently works in an off-road shop and spends his free time doing anything he can to stay busy, which is usually working on his jeep or playing music. Outside of off-roading, he is an avid whitewater rafter and outdoor cook. Camping at least every other weekend in any season is a normal year. The further from civilization, the better. Bring on the memories!
