Highlights

Highlight: Secret Mesa
This is a very short and easy spur off of Eva Conover. It gives you the chance to see the I70 bridges from a different angle, as well as looking down on Eagle Canyon where you probably just came from. The road takes you right up to the cliff's edge and makes for some pretty cool pictures.

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!
