It’s a sure sign that Easter is near when Moab’s streets are crowded with off-road vehicles and downtown hotels and restaurants are filled with visitors anxious to hit the backcountry trails for the annual Easter Jeep Safari. The 48th annual Jeep Safari, which begins with guided trail rides this Saturday, April 12, will feature 42 separate trail offerings throughout the nine-day event. Doug McElhaney, vice president of the Red Rock 4-Wheelers, which sponsors the event, said the group expects registration to be slightly higher than 2013. “It looks like we’ll be a little ahead of last year, but we don’t know yet,” McElhandy said, adding that many people register after they arrive in town.
