Perfect timing for a question or two. In 4 weeks we leave for a 2-week excursion into the Southwest. The finale is 3-nights on the White Rim. The first night is at Airport, the 2nd is at Labyrinth, the 3rd at Potato Bottom. I tried for White Crack or anything else towards the middle for night #2 but didn't get in on time. So my question(s) is, How would you (open to anyone who wishes to comment) approach the trip with such a large gap between camps for the 1st and 2nd night? My initial thought was after Airport, to take my time exploring to White Crack, then towards the end of the day make a speed run to Labyrinth. The next day, drive back up the trail to see what I missed on the speed run. Or, is there any way to boondock along the trail and just say oops? Do they patrol after dark?
Since I will have a full day from Potato Bottom to get back to Moab, are there any must do's to schedule?
