Canyonlands Nat. Park. Carcamping and hiking

  • November 7, 2013 · 7:00 AM
  • Canyonlands Nat. Park

We'll camp in the campground and do day hikes out of there. We shouldn't have any trouble getting a campsite this time of year. I'll probably go over there on Wed. night.

The hikes will not be over 10 miles. We'll be hiking in the Needles, Island in the Sky and Arched N.P.

The money is to pay for the campsite.

We'll carpool over there as best we can.

This is a great time to be there. The weather is still pleasant during the day if a little cool at night. And the crowds are gone.

    Sorry guys, have to cancel. I am not equipped enough and other things have to be done. I hope Scott will do this hike in the early spring again. I will do anything to attend at that time. Have a good weather, enjoy, it should be wonderful. Will wait for the pictures!

    Scott, we can't do the trip this week. Misdiagnosis at the car shop: it was not the freeze plugs on our van after all, it was a radiator leak. We just replaced the radiator last year and its still under warranty (unfortunately from a different repair shop). Called the radiator man who did the warranty work last year and he has gone elk hunting this week and wont be back till next Monday! What rotten luck! He's a one man operation so there is no one to honor the warranty. I am extremely ticked off. I was so looking forward to this trip. Shop #2 is putting the engine back in the van now and sending us home with the van un-repaired. We can keep filling the radiator till we can get it fixed next week, thats okay for around town but I am leery about traveling all the way to Utah with it in a leaky condition. I just cant fork over another $800 to repair the same radiator again, not when it'll be free next week.

    Scott, we wanted to leave tomorrow (sunday) but car has to go into shop on Monday to have radiator leak fixed (actually its the freeze plugs and they have to take the whole engine out to replace them!!). Best we can do is to head to Utah on Tuesday. Hope we can find a spot to camp in Arches. Will let you know if anything changes.

    Hi Scott, I thing I need to cancel. I don't have a car and don't see how to resolve this problem. It is a very small group, so no one can give me a spot. I still want to go very much. Will make a decision in a day. Grate hike supposed to be.

    We have decided to leave on Sunday Nov 3 and go toward Moab. We will do pictograph/petroglyph exploration hikes in the Moab/San Rafael Swell area, then try to meet up with the group Thursday for hiking and camping in Arches/Canyonlands and return to colorado on the 10th or 11th.

    Hi Scott. Jay and I want to go on this. Jay and I want to go a couple days early because we have a lot of things we want to see and do.
    We want to hike to Druid Arch in Needles, 11 mile hike round trip. What hikes are you planning for the group? We could do our stuff earlier in the week and go with the group on their hikes.

    I would love to be able to go, but I'm not able to break away from work. I already paid my camping fee, so feel free to "donate" it to someone else. I hope to make the next trip like this!!

    Dogs are not allowed in the campgrounds nor on the trails in the National Parks. It is best not to bring a dog.

    Dogs are not permitted in the campgrounds nor on the trails in the National Parks. It is best to leave dogs at home so that they are not confined to a car the whole time.

    can I take my dog? I will drive alone, if I take him.

    Vicky,where you will be coming from? I am in Denver and don't have car. If anyone takes me I will be happy to share expenses. Thank you all.

    I'm definitely interested! Where would all of us meet to carpool? How many hikes and how many miles per hike? Do we sleep in cars? Any bathroom/shower facilities available to us? Are they hikes for beginners or intermediate? How many days would this take place? I have been wanting to go to Arches NP for at least 20 years now and have never been to any of the Canyonlands. I'm so excited! Can't wait! I have a torn meniscus in both knees.........does that disqualify me to participate?

    September 6, 2013

  • Vicky

    I might have to work on Thursday. So I would probably be leaving Thursday PM to get there by Friday AM before the hike that day. If anyone else has the same issue and would like to carpool, please let me know.
