can anybody draw out a map of where you went? Or at least list of some locations so someone could play connect the dots? That looks sweet...

Matt,

The first two nights after the rod show, we were in Canyonlands at Devils Kitchen. One day we continued south through Bobys Hole to Ruin Park. The overnighter was in the San Rafael Swell.

And we took the southern route to the SRS, south through Monticello, then west via hwy 95 over Glen Canyon, then north through Hanksville and via Temple Mtn Road to Lone Warrior camp. Those roads were mostly empty, except for a pack of cruisers we passed heading in the opposite direction.

Speaking of which - how are those Swell pics coming along Perry?

Continuing again with the pics:

1-2) More of the Confluence.
3) Looking across the river towards the Doll House.
4) The two rivers still forming together.
5) In route to the San Rafael Swell and the overnighter. We stopped at the lake for a little brake. Before arriving, we passed by (once again) some of the Norcal group and others.

....

After one last stop in Hanksville for Fuel and Food (I also picked up a book on the Henrys) ), we cut through the southern portion of the San Rafael Swell using the Temple Mountain Road to get to camp. We managed to keep the speed around 65-70mph through this stretch

1) Views of the lake.
2) Matt.
3-4) Evening light from camp.
5) Camp.
