Thompson Canyon

Thompson Canyon is east of Onion Creek and the Fisher Towers, and northeast of Moab. It is a challenging, but non-technical hike, without a trail. Photos taken in late March 2006.

Note

I'll just be attaching this album to the group page I'm working on. I'll mention it in the overview, but don't think I'll add a seperate page on the canyon itself.

It might make a good page. I kno some don't like canyon pags though, so I've been mostly focusing on the ones that require rock climbing to get through.

Maybe I'll create one on this sometime, as I think it is acceptable on SPv2. I was also thinking of a Goblin Valley Page.
