       This annual outing offers an opportunity to climb iconic Cabezon Peak.  The description below is the same as for 2022.

       Cabezon Peak towers 2000 feet above the Rio Puerco Valley.  This volcanic plug is the remnant of the core of a volcano - like Shiprock.  Appearing impregnable, Cabezon can nonetheless be ascended by the intrepid mountaineer who follows the hidden route that wends its way through a crack in the plug's defenses.  Said mountaineer must be able to execute a couple of low fourth class maneuvers in pursuit of the summit.

    To get the canyon trips rolling early for 2023, we will go again to Blanding, Utah, for 3 days of hiking on April 13, 14, and 15, Thursday-Saturday. I’ve reserved lodging in Blanding, Utah, in the same condos as last year (the upstairs ones this time). From there, we can pick our hikes from the northern end of Comb Ridge, Mule and Arch Canyons, Natural Bridges National Monument, and White Canyon. We will have plenty to choose from, and the 3 days will go quickly. We will do our usual cross-country exploring, seeking places that are seldom travelled.

    Once more returning to the canyon country, our spring 2023 trip will be based in the Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument, in the slickrock hoodoo country above and east of Deer Creek. This is the same area that we explored in May 2013. We will reach our camp by hiking down from the Deer Creek trailhead, east of Boulder, Utah. We will explore the oases, slick rock, domes, and huge views of the canyon country. The outing is fairly physical, with several hours of hiking every day, with a comfortable base camp to return to every evening.

    This is a repeat of a successful trip held in August 2022. I would not be scheduling it so early, but found when I checked that only one opening was still available for summer 2023. The upper Conejos offers access to the South San Juan wilderness via several trails on the west side of the Conejos, as well as the several trails upstream of Platoro Reservoir, such as the 3 Forks trail. One can explore the high country and high lakes, and as well hike along the Conejos itself. Fly fishing is a possibility – trip leader Bill might be able to share the river with a would-be angler or two.

    Recently back from a great trip down the Selway River in July 2021, we signed up for our next adventure. We’d like to return to experience the 5-night trip down the Middle Fork in a cooler and quieter season. 2022 is substantially booked, so the September 2, 2023 departure by Hughes River Expeditions offers adventure and beauty, and a musical serenade every night to boot.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
