What a great first time camp I had! I was very lucky to be in there, from carpooling, camp equipment borrowing, signing up to the hiking of Basset peak, the coming back time and even the weather. Thanks Mark for your good organizing, Mike for your carpool and good timing, Bill for the fire guard, setting up and many others…It was so nice to meet all of you in such unique place with amazing beautiful fall colors. Weather was perfect even with tiny layer of snow on the top of the peak. I really enjoyed and liked the whole journey.

Thanks for the update !
With weather forecasts predicting a 30 % chance of rain on Friday evening and also on Saturday afternoon, are you considering changing the date of this hike ?
Is this more of an update -- let's see what happens -- kind of an announcement ?

Stacie and I are leaving early Friday, around 9am, and have vague plans to take a short hike up the canyon, depending on how the weather plays out. We have room for one more, if they travel light or have a roof-top bag. Possible Sat. evening departure, depending on the frigid factor.

Well, since my Aluminum suit is NOT recommended for Alien stealthiness ( Unless, as Greg C points out, -- I "Like the probe " )
I was considering NOT bringing it ;-)
It may offer me some thermo-reflective protection from the possible sub-freezing temperatures. Then again, a "little" Jack Daniels MAY offer similar protection ;-)
I know !
I'll bring BOTH.
You can NEVER be too safe.

Road conditions may vary, but I'm not sure you'll really _need_ a high clearance vehicle to reach the campsite. My less-than-'monster' Accord Wagon made it to the campsite last year w/o any trouble. The last ~mile of road, between the campground and trailhead, DID get pretty gnarly, but it's an easy stroll and most/all of the people (even those w. 4x4s) walked in.
