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.


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.

Re: could make a good canyon page

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.

Hidden gem

I discovered this canyon from this blog post.
Last March my friends and I turned it into a 3-day backpacking loop. We started at Onion Creek Hideout Campground, hiked down Fisher Creek to the Delores, then up and out of Thompson using the old stock trail. There were a few surprise drop-offs along Fisher, but nothing an experienced hiker couldn't handle. We only saw one person at the end of the Delores River dirt road. Beautiful place!
