Let's get a group of 5-10 people together to roadtrip out to Zion NP over Thanksgiving. Zion is one of the top ten national parks in the country with 2.5 million visitors each year. Activities are endless with hiking, backpacking, canyoneering, climbing, bicycling, horseback riding, and kayaking. Anticipate very pleasant day temperatures in the mid-sixties and night temperatures around 40. We will camp for three nights within the park and share expenses for fees, gas, etc. Please only sign up if you are 100% certain you will be joining. Feel free to shoot me any direct messages if you are hesitant about signing up!

Suggested Itinerary...

Leave Boulder @ 5pm Wednesday
Stay in Grand Junction Wednesday night
Arrive at Zion Thursday around noon
Leave Zion mid-morning on Sunday

    We're also going to need some games for the road trip/camp. A frisbee would be nice too, if anyone has one.

    Weather Update: Looks like we should expect mid-50s during the day and mid-30s overnight. Be sure to bring plenty of layers just in case! There is a slight chance of showers on Friday, but other than that it looks to be a pleasant weekend.

    Just a reminder, we are meeting at my place around 5:00 pm on Wednesday so we can be on the road by 5:30.

      Awesome!!! I must have misunderstood; I thought we were meeting up by 5:30... I'll be one of 3 people in the office on Wednesday, so I can't really leave much earlier than 5. Is 5:30 still okay?
