Lions Back is closed!

Yup, it has finally happened. The great Moab Icon has been closed to make way for Condo's. The present owner was seen moving his wares and Buldozers are coming in Monday to level the buildings. Times are changing!

Man, that sucks, what's going to be left for this hobby in a few years? That really REALLY stinks.

Re: Lions Back is closed!

It would seem to me that the condo builder is cutting off his/her own nose etc,etc. The only reason that I have heard of people going to Moab that would use a condo are there for Lion's Back and the rest of the (in)famous rocker panel bashing trails.

We'll say you went up it for the both of us! Heights like that and I DO NOT get along!!!!

It does suck that they are closing it. Makes you think the rest of the trails can't be far behind!

Re: Lions Back is closed!

Going up was the easiet part. Turning around wass a little "puckering". It was the way back down that really made me shudder.

There is way more that goes on in Moab than you think. Between the Hikers, bikers, rock climbers, rafters, motocross, eco natzi's and Geocashers. They just put up with the offroaders....LOL
