Worth noting that we came in from Myton and Phil from Green River. Nothing but a trickle in Sand Wash when we came down, but it took nearly 2 hours from the turnoff 40 until we arrived. Weather was wonderful the rest of the trip. Might try and post a couple photos if I get the chance.

Far from the only way to do it, but one way to avoid the bad road(s) in is detailed here:

Anybody been down in the last week or so? Looking for an update on bears as we launch in a little more than a week.

Can't wait to see Deso in October for the first time.

Thanks for the update. Hope you had a great trip.

Went ahead and bought a canister of Counter Assault and a Fog Horn. Hope to never use them but we do this stretch enough and the bear encounters seem to be getting more common each year. A cheap investment to keep us and the animals safe(r) if the need arises.

You had great levels for autumn with the spike we saw from the rains a few weeks ago.
