as a born and raised desert rat i've lived in this landscape so long it looks almost pedestrian to me, i have to remind myself periodically how otherworldly this must appear to most folks.
Taken: Oct 1, 2011
brought my zip and didn't ride a single inch, driving my overloaded beast was a full time job and a full on blast
candlestick, check out our green river folder for a river level view
dawn, and the beginning of a marathon day
day three and my trusty ranger is still sitting heavy on the rear springs
down on the white rim
looking up the shafer trail
looking west towards the green river
my trusty ranger loaded for bear. actually heavily overloaded...
north escarpment of murphey's hogback
our only glimpse of the colorado river
road barely visible at far left of picture
scale is deceiving, this canyon is considerably deeper than it looks in this picture.
someone has her stoke on!
sunset at airport tower campsite
the fun begins, dropping into schafer canyon
the la sal mountains in the distance
the shafer trail switchbacks viewed from the canyon rim
the speck on the road at the far left of the picture is diane
this stretch of road is actually steeper than it looks here
view from the north side of murphey's hogback looking west. the green river is barely visible in the top of this picture.
view from the south side of murphey's hogback, you can make out the road in the left third of the picture
view south towards the confluence
you can barely make out the road down off of the hogback, it transects upper left to lower right. it's actually quite a bit steeper than it appears here.
