March 15 to 31 - North AZ and South UT - input appreciated
This spring, I'll be taking my family again for a camping adventure road trip to Northern AZ and Southern UT :D
I've done this area a handful of times myself, usually camping at National parks, established campsites. As a family, we did this area a couple years ago, virtually all national park camping. I think the boys racked up 6 or 7 junior ranger badges last time :).
-The boys are a little more capable now (and less interested in Jr. Ranger :()
-We'll all have hammocks and appropriate cold weather gear
-We'd like to do some different things this time, maybe camp outside the parks more
For those of you who have lived/traveled in this area, I humbly ask you to take a few moments to recommend your "must camp" locations in this area.
Our criteria will be
- drive in (light 4x4)...or
- light hike from drive (an hour or less)
- ability to use our new powers of hammock camping :cool:
- Beauty and Peace...:boggle:
Our loose plan:
We'll be spending a few nights at Mather in GC for sure
Seen lots of Moab, maybe consider Canyonlands area this time
Fruita and Zion were nice
Hope to spend some time in Millard County for fossils and gemstone collecting again.
If anyone has any suggestions, many thanks in advance...
I'd offer to hang with anyone in the area for that time frame, but I'd hate to bring our family cacophony your way ;)
