Stocked up on food...and socks, since I wore mine all out...on the way to Moab. I have a serious issue with socks, mainly because I don't wear wool and non-wool socks are hard to come by. Anyway, socks and food. Then to Canyonlands, one of my favorite national parks!
Got there in the late afternoon and grabbed a campsite. Got a backcountry permit for a two day trip. On our way out, a ranger asked if we were told about the trail conditions. Nope, we weren't. Apparently, there was a pretty significant flash flood a couple weeks before we got there, and no one had been to the backcountry campsite we were going to. No one was really sure if the trail was even actually there anymore. Might have gotten washed out. Huh, intriguing. We were also supposed to keep an eye for quicksand.
With that in mind, we headed back to the campsite. Lots of Pinyon Jays hanging around. Nice! Excellent night sky and even better sunrise! (the thing above is one of my tent stakes that faced a brutal end. It did contort into a "J" form which was fitting. Below - lotsa tracks in the sand)
