In a revival of an old tradition, 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. We spend many winter long weekends in the vicinity, but haven't been back since 2009.
