ROCK ART tour with George Decker- Gateway & Dolores River canyon

ROCK ART tour with George Decker

                            Gateway & Dolores River canyon

Join George for a look at rock art that many of us in CAS-GJ have probably not seen before. 

George would like to meet at 9 AM at a small parking lot on the west side of the CO Hwy 141 crossing over the Gunnison River. The red circle is the meeting place.

BRING:

• Dress for the weather

• Comfortable walking shoes or light hiking boots (no long or strenuous walks)

• Lunch/ snacks/ water

• Binoculars (always on CAS-GJ trips) & camera

CARPOOLING/ CARAVANING:

George suggests we try to get into as few cars as possible since some of the parking spots will be small.  

It would be good to minimize the number of cars.

High clearance &/or 4WD may be needed for the final planned stop of the day

DOGS:

Since we will be getting in and out of cars close to the highway numerous times and we want to minimize the number of cars it is asked that FIDO NOT COME ALONG today.

RSVP:

This is more a car-roadway based trip than one with extensive hiking however PLEASE be sure you can deal with rough terrain, up and down hills and short cross country walks as we will not be on improved trails. 

It is chapter policy that ALL field trip participants must be dues-paid-up members of CAS-GJ (a limited number of members from other chapters may be allowed). If you need to renew membership or join for the first time please download and deliver this membership application

If you sign up as a YES please be sure you are going to be there. We have seen some people who sign up right away then closer to the date change their RSVP to a NO. Of course there will be a few times that happens but we have seen a few chronic individuals who do this. Please do not be one of them. Give other members the courtesy of a place on the trip if you are a MAYBE rather than saying you are a YES then changing your mind.

CONTACT:

George Decker for specific questions about the trip[masked]

Doug Van Etten for more general CAS-GJ questions[masked]

    My husband Rob Fiedler is still on the waiting list for Dec. 3 trip. I will need to forfeit my place on the trip as I'd rather not go without him. Thanks for moving me up, but I'll not go at this point.

    I can't make it this Saturday so someone can take my spot!

    December 1

  • Joe O.

    I will go on the later trip so someone can have my spot here

    November 28

  • George D.

    We are over subscribed so we will have to close the attendees for the 3rd of Dec. so give me a call if you would like to go on the exact same trip the 10th.

    November 27

  • Doug Van E.

    I forgot my wife has us in Ohio (of all places) this weekend.

    November 27

  • George D.

    Those on the wait list for Sat. the 3rd of Dec, can go on the exact same trip the following Sat. the 10th of Dec. Email me or give me a call to sign up or just let me know here on the web page. At present we have 6 people signed up.

    November 22

  • George D.

    Also please remember, no dogs, on either trip to the Gateway area.

    1 · November 19

  • George D.

    For you that are on the wait list -- I will be taking the exact same trip on the 10th of Dec. It is sponsored by the Chipeta Chapter but you can go by giving me a call and I will pencil you in.

    November 19

  • Ike R.

    It looks like I can't un-RSVP. Hopefully, someone else can go in my place.

    November 9

  • Ike R.

    I got so excited about this trip that I forgot to check my work schedule and unfortunately I'm working until 12:30 on the 3rd. Darnit! I'm bummed that I won't be able to make it. The Gateway area is one of my favorite places.

    November 9

  • Mary

    Is there going to be wait list? If you figure 4 cars with 4 each is 16.

    November 6

    • Mary

      Ok, but I am not a Chipeta member and RSVP are closed at only

      November 7

    • George D.

      Any paid up C A S member can go with any other C A S organization. Just give me a call to get signed up or come to the Chipeta Chapter meeting in Montrose, Wed the 16th. We will sign up people at that meeting.

      November 8

  • George D.

    At this point we have about 15 people going and that is the number we said at the outset would be the limit, of course there always seems to be room for a late arrival.

    November 6

  • George D.

    Ike : I'm not sure where the Jan. trip went but I have not shown these to anybody for 2 or 3 years.

    1 · November 6

  • Ike R.

    Any idea on which sites we'll be visiting? Will it be similar to the January trip?

    November 5

  • Joe H.

    I have a Tacoma pickup truck and will gladly carpool and drive others as needed.
