A good trip report. I want to travel that part of the world next year for a while. The only thing that worries me is my rig is a bit bigger than yours and the warnings look not to be taken lightly. It is a good thing there aren't many other folks out there, meeting something like yourself coming from the other way usually means a lot of backing for someone. May just have to use the two stage method. Run the big unit till I can't go any further then get on the ATV, even though I really don't like dragging a trailer when exploring like that.

Nice looking trip Mr. Smith. But who the devil was Henry to have a mountain range named after him? Love all the pictures and they remind me why I'll always need to live within a days drive of the Southwest. In one picture I can see Sunset Pass where we have camped a few times on our way to the Maze. Thanks for the trip.

Enjoyed it a lot, and looking forward to seeing that part of the country someday.

Nice post. I believe the Henry Mtns. and the Hanksville area was part of Butch Cassidy's stomping grounds and associated with the "Hole In The Wall" (one of his hideouts).

Great start on another outstanding TR, Eric. I've only (so far) seen the Henry's from Dark Canyon. [image] Obviously a closer look is needed. But where is that 'rockiest road'?
