Sure thing, Dave. One thing I should point out is that with Deer Creek closed, Blacktail Canyon still gives one an opportunity to visit the Great Unconformity and see it close-up.

It's always interesting to visit Blacktail, no matter how many times I did before.

When you walk up the Deer Creek trail from the river there is a part of the trail where when you take a few steps you can feel a vibration; something passing through your body. That is you stepping over the Great Unconformity.

I'll be doing that again in about two months!

The blooming desert a short hike from two hundred & twenty mile camp about a month ago. March / April in the canyon is verdant & smells wonderful.
