Thanksgiving Feast at Zion is less than 2 weeks away
Please read ALL THIS INFORMATION and do your part in advance to help make this, the 3rd annual thanksgiving in a national park, the very best one yet.
We will be camping on private land near the town of Virgin, UT.
Please bring some small bills cash to contribute for:
If anyone has a trailer, camper or other camping vehicle, they are welcome and encouraged to bring/ come with that. As a matter of fact, if you have a vehicle with cooking capability, maybe you would be willing to do things like be the local coffee shop each morning (just a suggestion, not required), etc.
TO FIND THE LOCATION:
From UT Hwy 9 in the town of Virgin, turn left/ north onto Kolob Terrace Road. Drive 1.8 miles to a small road turning off to the right to a flat area along the river. We are going to try to secure a large area to the right of the entry road. If you do not like the looks of that entry road for your vehicle there is another small road off the paved road a few 1/10’s of a mile farther up the pavement that also drops down to the riverside flats.
Look for the tepee and the WSA banner.
Here is a Google map link to the route once you are in the town of Virgin. Zoom in on that map link and you will see the details in the map below.
For personal use, bring all your warm and cozy car camping gear and be sure to bring a folding camp chair to sit in at dinner. Bring hiking gear and an assortment of clothes.
Here is a link to the weather in Springdale, 13 miles from our camp location.
Please see these and other details on the web site at http://www.meetup.com/backpackers-128/events/127712502/
This will be a POTLUCK FEAST.
Please contact Stacie Boyles to let her know what you want to bring or have her tell you what may still be needed. Stacie is the food coordinator if you signed up with WSA 801-391-4059
We will PLAN TO EAT ABOUT 3 PM ON THANKSGIVING DAY so we can enjoy the meal and the company but also get most of the stuff cleaned up & put away before dark
