So Owl Creek Pass is worth it? Looking online, some say it's spectacular, others say it's all in the trees with no views.

Drat! Looks like we are a few days ahead of everyone. We'll be in RMNP thru Saturday.

We're in Telluride tonight. Neat little town. Still headed towards Zion via Mon Valley/White Pocket.

Camped at Woods Lake near there last year. Great place. The van looks great.

Yeah, Telluride is a special place in my opinion.

Bummer that Imogene isn't open yet. That's a cool drive!

Re: Summer trip planning, CO/AZ/UT/WY

Not going to risk White Pocket this trip due to van issues and now lost time. We're at Zion hiking for a couple days. If it gets to the expected 106 tomorrow it's been good knowing you all. We may still try for a night at the North Rim of the GC if repairs are quick before we head North.

When do you think you'll hit Yellowstone? Do you have a rough itinerary?

Re: Summer trip planning, CO/AZ/UT/WY

Hey Brian, were in Jackson and are going to stay in the Tetons for a couple more days and then head east. We're having a blast but the van drama has dampened our spirits so we're gonna stay still until we head home. Where are you guys? I've been trying to find enough service and time to catch up on your thread but haven't yet.
