The next day we hit up Hidden Canyon, the Pickle, and Tushar Tunnel. I do not have any pictures of that, but I did get some Go Pro of the hard obstacles on the Pickle.
Next up is La Sal Pass. This was a nice refreshing ride to beat the upper 90's heat in the valley. However, you had to wear about 5 pounds of bug spray, as the mosquitoes were very bad.

The next day we hit up the South Fork of Sevenmile Canyon. This is a sandy was that you can ride for roughly 2 miles, so it was not very fulfilling ATV ride, however the canyon is abundant with Native American rock art. See my other trip report for more on that.
The next day my buddy Jason and I went out and rode Behind the Rocks and Pritchett Canyon in reverse. What a fun day. Extremely hard stuff.

Usually when I come out to Colorado I will drop the main jets down one jet size on each carb, and adjust my needle jets down slightly. I have found with Moab that the airbox lid adjustment is all I need.
I did start to run pretty rich when we did the La Sal Pass ride which was near 10,000 feet.
The Raptor and the red Polaris are both fuel injected. They ran a little rough with the heat though. The Raptor would backfire a bit, and the Polaris had some difficulty idling.
The heat did not get to us very much until the Behind the Rocks/Pritchett ride. It was absolutely stupid hot that day. We had the pool at Moab Valley RV park and an air conditioned cabin that helped a bunch. We also spent lots of time swimming in Mill Creek which was a blast!
