    Mountain Biking trip to Fruita and/or Moab.  Since I don't know who will sign up I'll leave the exact agenda open.  But Notionally it will be to reserve a VRBO house appropriate to the group size in Grand junction Colorado and Bike in fruita.  If the group desires we can either day trip to Moab or find a second place there.  The length of the trip is flexible but a minimum of 3 mights seems apropos.  If the consensus is to hike then we can hike that day.  I am not a grand junction expert but I'm told the downtown is revitalized and has entertainment too.

    To get the canyon trips rolling early for 2024, we will go again to Blanding, Utah, for 3 days of hiking on April 18, 19, and 20, Thursday-Saturday. I’ve reserved lodging in Blanding, Utah, in the same condos as last year and 2022. From there, we can pick our hikes over a wide range of the canyon country: the northern end of Comb Ridge, Mule and Arch Canyons, Natural Bridges National Monument, White Canyon, and/or the Needles section of Canyonlands National Park. We will have plenty to choose from, and the 3 days will go quickly.

    I would like to propose a May 2024 canyon trip to the Ticaboo Canyon system in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. This adventure will take us to a complex canyon system with water enough for camping, and make possible a series of day hikes to slickrock tops and side canyons. We will camp somewhere in the canyon system. All the hiking will be off trail, and sometimes involves scrambling over rock ledges and ridges, or wading through creeks.
