Awesome, great post!

One hint for cool mornings/warm days; zip-off pant legs...yeah, I know...they are geeky...but they work!

Thank you for the wonderful trip report. It was a great escape for me while eating lunch at my windowless desk today. I enjoyed the story and the scenic (and even the ... uh ... not so scenic) photos [emoticon]

Eric,

Another great trip with your typical great write-up & pics (which I have to admit I have gotten out of the habit of doing for our trips). Anyway, we were in a number of the Abajo Mountain areas you explored when we were there in May when we also did the Cathedral Point & Beef Basin areas.

We also just got back from a 5 day trip with our friends & neighbors where we went down past Natural Bridges, onto Halls Crossing, took our campers on the ferry across the Colorado River to Bullfrog, hit the Burr Trail along the eastern side of Capitol Reef, onto Boulder, up the Hells Backbone road to Posy Lake on the Aquarius Plateau, and finished up by heading back through Capitol Reef/Hanksville/Green River and camped at Crystal Geyser (which erupted quite nicely in the early morning hours for us). When we got home Monday afternoon, the extended high was breaking down in a major way and a lot of the areas we had just been camping in and traveling through then proceeded to get absolutely hammered with major thunderstorms and mega rain ... so we were glad we weren't still there (or we would probably still be stuck there).

Of course, you outdid that with the 4 tornadoes hitting just west of your home base in Flagstaff. Crazy weather this fall!

I got home Tuesday night as the storm was reaching a crescendo. Of course Wednesday was the wildest, with tornadoes hitting the ground less than 10 miles from the house. Not something you expect in northern Arizona, and I watched very nervously out the window much of the day as reports of damaging wind and hail kept rolling in.

With the amount of rain that the whole region received it could not have been good for the areas that got hammered earlier in the year. Makes me wonder what kind of shape things will be in next spring?
