Scouting Moab Redrocks & Colorado Rockies

The Big Payoff – Carlsbad Caverns

Death Valley

The plan seemed sound enough, the weather had been great, and the guys had time to make the run.  It looked like a quick trip to Death Valley was in the cards.  But somewhere between planning and leaving Global Climate Change made its own plans… trumping ours. The plan called for a 7:30 meet up […]

During its 18 months of operation, it reduced the […]
