Trying Not to Get lost
The hiking and biking trails at O’Bannon Woods are excellent. There’s great scenery and the trails are diverse. Unfortunately, a lot of the trails aren’t on the state park map. And many are still not on Natural Atlas. So figuring out where you’re going is adventuresome. Some of the horse trails are…

This trail was lackluster at best. The trail is multi-use, so there’s gravel along the vast majority of this trail. We passed about 3 ‘stream crossings’, but since we’ve not had rain in over a month, these were bone dry. The hills are moderate.  Poison ivy and tall grasses grow in the middle of the…

Leavitt Meadows Trailhead to Lower Long Lake to Fremont Lake Loop
We started off by leaving the Bay Area on Thursday Sept 19 in the evening to head up to Lake Tulloch.  This cut about 2 hours off our drive time to the trailhead, and got us a little elevation (~3000’) to start to acclimate. Friday morning, Sept 20 we drove East on Highway 120 past the Sonora Pass…

Began at welcome center and went north under the highway. Followed the paved Trail/boardwalk until a sand trail diverged and went along shoreline.  Eventually the trail ended and turned around and retraced path back to welcome center.

I saw the name Horse Tanks on the map and expected to find man made tanks like those for stock, but that’s not it all, these are natural reservoirs fed by a trickle of water.

In No Name Canyon
Just off I70 one exit east of Glenwood Springs is No Name Canyon - who names these places - or doesn’t? The canyon starts out steeply up to the north but moderates a bit after a short distance.

I’ve been to Lower Cathedral Valley many times, over 200, but mostly been limited to showing tour guests the main features in the valley for a few minutes. Today I decided to explore a valley to the north of the Temples.

This hike has some magnificent views of the Colorado River and the Book Cliffs. The hike is a lollipop, the left (eastern) side of the sucker has the great views but the right side has a more gradual ascent to the mesa top.

Devil’s Canyon is a system of trails around the canyon of the same name. My intention was to take D3 which goes up the canyon itself but the signing for D3 is poor and I first took a deviation on D1. Access to all the ‘D’ trails is at the parking lot for the D1 trailhead, D3 forks off to the left…

This was a hike to cache water for a cross country hiker coming through later in the week on the American Discovery Trail, which uses the Kokopelli Trail in this area. The Troy Built appears to be more used by bicycles than hikers.

A Snowy Final Visit to Johnson for the Year
Winter came a little early to Johnson Reservoir. The impending storm created a moody quiet environment, eerily silent.
