Day Trip  Sucess!

Day trip. Took advantage of National Park no fee day. FREE! Hit the high points but didn't do anything remotely epic. Laid out the ground work for an in-depth trip next year.

Seriously, this place is a misanthrope's dream. Pretty as the Grand Canyon without the crowds. DO IT!

Spring Break Trip  Sucess!

A long, long time ago. Mike and I enjoyed a five day back pack trip from the top, along the white rim, camping along the river, back along the white rim, and return. Beautiful spring weather. Almost no people. Had to resort to CO River water and didn't get sick!

Lillian and I came back in spring of 1984 for car camping and day hiking along the plateau. Magical place!

Route Climbed: Gooseberry Trail Date Climbed: 10 August 2003  Sucess!

It was nice and HOT for this midday hike. If you don't like heat, avoid hiking to the White Rim in July and August. I like the heat, so I did it August 10.

We've been here many times and have always enjoyed it. Took the mtn. bikes from the top of Shafer Trail (near the "neck") down to the river... what a ride!
