We connected with Pam and Randy (RV friends from long ago) last night resulting in our getting together to travel Canyonlands NP. They’d seen the Canyonlands road down in the canyon, close to the Colorado River from Dead Horse Point yesterday and wanted to travel that “Jeep” road, Schafer Trail. We thought that sounded like a fun idea, because we wanted to see all of Canyonlands today ourselves. Best of all, they took us in their Jeep. I’ll have to say, that was some adventurous road all right, over rocks and ledges with steep switchbacks as we ascended to the end of our “road”, to the Visitor’s center at “Island In the Sky”. We even got to experience Pam and Randy locate a geocache! Amazing how accurate the coordinates are to direct them to the right spot.
Note: Canyonlands/View from Dead Horse Point State Park are about 1/2 the width and 1/2 the depth of the Grand Canyon.
