    Sticky: Great overnight camping spot.

    Another here that thought it looked familiar ! You are in the Alabama hills just west of Lone Pine and that is Mobius arch. The trail starts along Movie Flats road, named so as this location has...
  2. Good pace.

    It is good to pace yourself evenly on a cross country route, it is a marathon and not a sprint. Do not be fooled by electronic mapping programs time estimates though, as they don't belong in the...

    Whereas I can understand your logic, if you take all the right precautions, stopping over night in a Motel will be a safer option for the families than driving while fatigued. It will also be...

    As you continue west from Yellowstone and the Tetons (where you could check out Mormon row) Craters of the Moon NM is quite a cool stop that doesn't need to take up too much time. Twin Falls would...
  10. Sticky: Poll: We have a date !!

    We will have to wait and see to be sure, but Yosemite NP has announced the Tioga Pass will open on Monday June 15th, but only to those people who have made a reservation to visit Yosemite NP. This...
  11. Sticky: Poll: First updates of the season !

    The first official updates state that the snow has been cleared on the Tioga pass but other Spring operations are ongoing. This includes road repairs, clearing of any debris (rock, trees) and...

    We need help.

    And how much time you have and your interests, it will help define what the best route might be. Are you a family with young kids, a group of teenagers, a retired knitting group ? Ok so the last...

    Sticky: Balcony view ?

    Those cut out rock steps make me think you're heading to Balcony house in Mesa Verde NP.

    Dave
  20. Sticky: Poll: Not much happening right now.

    A little snow falls on the highground today, but apparently it's not going to amount to much. Otherwise it's all pretty quiet with no further updates from Yosemite regarding plowing, or opening for...

    The bigger picture.
