Reports from Colorado/Utah/Nevada, July 2017

I've finally completed the reports from a Colorado/Utah/Nevada trip back in July 2017: Mule Canyon Towers, Bears Ears National Monument, Utah. http://kaurijacobphotography.yolasite.com/resources/UtahColoradoBishop/MuleCanyonTowers.pdf Colorado Trail (section northwest of Little Molas Lake), Silverto...

Re: Edmunds tests Honda Ridgeliner in DV

This is a great comment from a post by David_Bricker in an old thread, which always comes to my mind when traveling on washboarded roads: I have determined, through exhaustive research, that the smoothest speed for washboard roads is precisely 10 MPH OVER the point in which you lose control of your ...

A lesson is to be learned from this video for all who drive too fast on those washboard roads.
I agree entirely!

Re: Big Blue Blunder

Thank you for the detailed image of your route! That is the same canyon I was thinking of. If I recall correctly, there is at least one dryfall, with loose rock, which I think is about 12-15 feet tall, in the straight stretch of canyon below the one which stopped you. I doubt it will give you any tr...

Re: What is it, and/or where is it?

I'd guess the badlands area south of Salt Creek, near the old road to the salt springs and borax works?

Re: Big Blue Blunder

Great photos and videos! Watching your movie made me almost feel like I was there. I'm curious if you've tried to ascend the canyon you photographed which drains towards Desolation Canyon? It actually joins the Artists Drive road shortly past the Palette turnoff, and might be interesting. I tried it...

I've uploaded the last report from this trip, which covers Keane Wonder Bridge, a small drainage north of Cyty's Mill, and the nearby area: http://kaurijacobphotography.yolasite.com/resources/DVDec17/KeaneWonderBridgeCytysMillPart1.pdf http://kaurijacobphotography.yolasite.com/resources/DVDec17/Kean...

My wife and I saw one of those critters at the mouth of Scotty's Canyon near Ashford Mill a few years ago. It was sitting on a nest in a creosote bush. I don't think they are all that rare in Death Valley.
That's a very nice photo!

Re: Death Valley December 2017 Trip Reports

I think you would definitely enjoy hiking this canyon, especially since it is so photogenic!

Also, congrats on your upcoming retirement which I recall you posting about in another thread. Does that mean more time for vacations? :)

Re: Death Valley December 2017 Trip Reports

I've uploaded another trip report, on Hellfire Canyon, which is the major canyon just north of Natural Bridge Canyon. I think this is an unofficial name for the canyon, assigned by canyoneers, and it seems to accurately describe the red colors occasionally appearing on the canyon walls! The first so...

Re: Death Valley December 2017 Trip Reports

I've completed one more report from this trip, visiting a formation in the upper part of the canyon just north of Echo. As expected, it turned out to not be a natural bridge, but the upper part of the canyon is very nice and is worth exploring further (when the days are longer than they are in Janua...
