Kokopelli Trail/Moab/Utah Overland In May, Anyone?

So, I've been planning a trip out to Utah to do some overlanding through Moab and a few of the National Parks. Since I'm cutting through Colorado to get to Moab, I figured I'd spend the most possible time off road as I can and have been looking at taking the Kokopelli Trail from Colorado to Moab. I looked at the Dolores Triangle route, but there are several river fordings on that trail and with the unpredictability of weather, I'd hate to backtrack 2 days if the river is impassable. I hate to make a run like that solo, so, anyone up for a trail run? After Moab, I plan on hitting Shafer Canyon, then overlanding to Capitol Reef, then down to Escalante. If anyone is interested in going on any part of those runs, let me know!

.45ACP...because shooting twice is just, well, silly.

I'd be interested depending on exactly when. So far my Commander is 100% stock, but should have at least lift and tires by then, and the start of my recovery kit by then. Any idea if that is a trail my rig would be able to handle (4.7L QT-II)?

Hey Eric,

He posted this in FEB 2017 so, he probably meant in MAY of 2017 which came and went already.
