I'll be out in the Moab area the first week of October. I've been looking at climbing Mt. Peale one of those days, but wanted to know if there were any other peaks in the area that might be worth a look. No 4WD, not looking for anything technical. Also wondering about weather in the area around that time, I assume it can still get pretty hot down in the desert still but how is it usually up in the mountains around that time ? Hoping the fall colors in the La Sal's would be good around that time as well, or would that be too early/too late already ?
also, is the Moab area/Canyonlands still pretty busy into the first week of October usually ?
