Monday I am going with Michele to Gemini Bridge - Steve you coming? :-)
Tue my PA friend Jonathan and I plan on Beef Basin any one care to join us?
Wed I am still open

Are you planning to do Beef Basin in one day? If so that would be a very long day and one I wouldnt recomend. To get into the basin taking Highway 211, and Indian Creek is around 4hours. To get a taste of what Beef Basin has to offer, i'd recomend at least a afternoon, if not a full day within the basin exploring.

Perry,
Thanks for an excellent point. I was not aware that Beef Basin is 4 hours away from Area BFE. Hmm....

I don't mind driving a trail for 4 hours, but driving on the road for 4 hours is not appealing after driving 2000 miles

Can I drive Monday night to Beef Basin doing it Tue and come back to BFE Tue night? would that work?

Anyone has alternative suggestions for Tuesday? How about Chicken Corner?

it's only maybe an hour if that on pavement. then it's all unimproved dirt. you make the turn just past newspaper rock and circle around the backside of canyonlands.

It's really nice, you could come out e hill and then do lockhart to moab. it's going to be hard to do beef basin as a day trip. are you doing ehill as a part of cm?

Probably just a little over, but should leave a little time for Newspaper Rock. The dirt road in takes about 2hours to get into the basin.

Well, then I do like dirt roads. I don't get a chance to drive my car 2 hours off the pavement, and to me is part of the experience. I don't want to only climb rocks.
Given that I will enjoy the dirt road, should I then keep Beef on for Tue?

I was not planning on doing e-hill.

I GOT INTO the Overnighter.
So that defines my "before" CM activity.
I hope to get in Sunday night and do a trail Monday.
Tue PM I have to head over to the Overnight camp site.
I suppose what make sense is to find a trail that is in the direction of San Rafael. Leave BFE Tue morning, do a trail, and continue to camp.

So, if anyone have suggestion for a Tue trail between BFE and San Rafael please let me know.

Rami
