Re: Get Together Around Vegas/Southern Utah in September 2010?
I'm going to stop in St. George at the ranger station and ask about road conditions. There are basically three ways in/out and they vay from 60-90 miles of mediocre dirt roads. Last time we werethere 2wd could make the trip. Just avoid the dustholes out of Colorado City or take a different route.
From St. George it is longer and there is the risk of snow over Mt. Trumbull. Nothing worse than washboard on this route. 90 miles and we did some sightseeing on this route and took 6 hours. A little scary going 6 hours out and hoping to find space available in the campground.
From Colorado City it was shorter, but the road had really NASTY dustholes. Big (10') deep (12") holes filled completely with dust. I could only see them because the dust had settled completely flat on top. 60 miles 3 hours.
From Fredonia it was fairly easy. No big surprises when we went this way. 60 miles 2.5 hours.
Suggested maps are:
- AAA map of Southern Utah
- BLM map of the Arizona Strip
Lets say I will be there from the 19th to the 22nd. And I'm going to make reservations for the North Rim the 23rd to the 26th.
Hope to see several of you there, including your dad Steve.
