Great report on a great place, navigator!
Classic! Those Sipsey Creeks just go crazy in heavy rain, and they change FAST!I have never had a more harrowing night of camping. EVER. I kept peeking out under the tarp to see if the creek was getting close
Get this: last time I was there, I could walk across Borden ( at the Sipsey junction) barely getting the bottom of my boots wet. In fact, it would not have been any challenge crossing the Sipsey itself, though I might have gotten my feet and ankles wet. Can you believe it?

Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
Great trip report and pics. Next time you're in that area, look for this historically significant place:
Saltpeter Cave was a source for the potassium nitrate used in the production of gunpowder, for the Union Army in the Civil War. Between Needles Eye and Bee Branch.
Nice trip report! Looks and sounds like a good time. Thanks for sharing.
Hey brother, hadnt seen ya in awhile. Fixing to make this trip to see shiprock this weekend and wanted to watch this video again as a refresher. I clicked the link and it denied me, reporting it was private. Hated to see that. Hope all is well.
