Mica Mine

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

Amanda wanted to head back up to try and find the Mica Mine that we couldn’t find on Monday. Lucky for us, we did find it today. We had taken a wrong turn on Monday which led us up and out of the canyon.

After finding the mine and exploring it a bit, we continued on to the end of the trail where we found a cool waterfall.

Memorial Day | Monday, May 26, 2008

Went out and did a little local exploring for a few hours today. I headed up through Fruita and into Coal Gulch and took that up onto Ross Ridge. I initially passed the turnoff for Coal Gulch and had to turn around, but I did find a side trail I am going to have to research and head back to checkout.

Saturday & Sunday, May 24-25, 2008

Unfortunately since Amanda has to work on the holiday, we only had a normal weekend to go exploring, but we managed to make the most of it.

After heading out after work and driving straight through to Blanding, where we filled up with gas, we made it to Comb Wash campground and managed to setup camp right before it started raining. We knew there might be a chance of rain, but it actually ended up raining all night….and pretty hard, too.

Instead of heading out for some wheeling this weekend, Amanda and I decided to take a paved road trip up to the top of the Grand Mesa to see how much snow was up there still. Plus, neither of us had been up there before. There was still plenty of snow up there, so any trails up there to explore are still a ways off from being opened.

After our day in Arches National Park and a good nights sleep last Saturday, we headed out Sunday to run the trail that Amanda chose for the day, and then did a little more exploring. Since Amanda chose Hurrah Pass, heading to the end of Chicken Corners was a natural choice. But I also wanted to check out the Jackson Hole trail as well. We had plenty of time to squeeze all of that in, and still made it home to Junction by 5pm 🙂
