    I have not done this hike, so it is somewhat exploratory.

    Limit: This hike is limited to 6 backpackers, to ensure moving at a reasonable speed.  First come, first serve. I need to have a firm commitment including payment by July 13.

    This is a 17 mile loop in the Cedar Mesa area in Utah. Note that this trip requires permits, and permits can be acquired the earliest 90 days in advance. The permit is $8/person plus $6 for the group, and they have to be picked up in person by noon of the first day at the Kane Gulch Ranger Station.

    We did it last year - let's do it again! I'd like spend a hiking weekend based in Bluff, Utah, which is the closest corner of the canyon country, just 5 1/2 hours drive from Los Alamos. Going in late October, we should have fine, cool weather, perfect for exploring the slick rock and ruins in the vicinity of Bluff, farther afield in the canyons that carve into Comb Ridge, in the canyons that drain Cedar Mesa, and in White Canyon and its tributaries. An old trip report can be found at http://lamountaineers.org/oldtrips/204.html.

    The group will meet at the Quemazon trailhead (48th and Trinity) at 9:00 am. Parking is available at the trailhead. From there, we will hike down to West Road and reach Reservoir Road, which is partly washed out but passable. We will continue hiking the Los Alamos Canyon pass the Reservoir, then connect to the newly completed Knapp trail. After a steep ascent on nicely graded switchbacks, we will reach Quemazon trail and hike down to complete the loop. We will return at about 12:30 pm. Bring water and a snack, dress according to weather conditions.

    Ever wonder about the physiological state referred to as screaming barfies, that strange attraction that some climbers have to water in its solid phase, or why some folks think having four pairs of gloves in their winter kit is better than a good idea? If you’ve ever thought that strapping sharp pointed objects to your feet, and that carrying objects in your hands that would make you a  serious threat on a medieval battlefield is an interesting idea, than this trip is for you. Welcome to ice climbing.

    For a spring 2020 Canyon trip, we will head to an area that we have not visited since 2007: the Escalante River, about a mile upstream from its confluence with 25 Mile Wash.

    This will be our usual drop camp trip, in which we make ourselves a comfortable camp with chairs, tables, two-burner stove, wine cellar, etc, and explore out in every direction for five days of hiking. It can be a little warm in May, but we will have the Escalante River nearby to take a dip.

    One of the classic river runs in North America is the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, running through the River of No Return wilderness. We had a wonderful trip down the Middle Fork in July 2016, hosted by Terry Morgan and Lorrie Bonds Lopez, and catered by Hughes River Expeditions of Stanley, Idaho. Between the rafting and kayaking, fly fishing for trout, the semi-desert scenery, and fabulous food, it was a trip to remember. It is time to organize our return trip.
