The original plan was to spend Sat night at the Maze overlook but weather appeared to be rolling in and the winds were not kind for spending a night on the exposed overlook. We decided to avoid that cold and windy misery and head on towards the Dirty Devil River crossing so we could camp in a less exposed area within the canyon.

Meeting at the intersection to discuss the new plan.



Gotta love the Utah red dirt on a Sandstorm FJ.



Lined up on Sunset Pass (I think).



Stopped somewhere along Hatch Canyon



A cool old Hudson car which was converted to a trailer/RV and abandoned years ago.

Views along Hatch Canyon as we got closer to the Dirty Devil River crossing.





The ol' "hold the camera backwards with one hand and snap a picture while driving with the other hand" shot.



Marveling at the super-squishy wet sand along the bank of the Dirty Devil. It obviously hadn't been crossed recently based on the sand banks on both sides.



Crossing pics. It really wasn't deep in the crossing area but there was a definite channel about 2/3 of the way across.

Gathering at on the other side of the river after crossing.



With one vehicle not running we decided to try and get out of the canyon Saturday night. One of the guys (Romer) with a V8 powered 100 Series Land Cruiser towed the drowned rig through Poison Springs Canyon, up hwy 95 and into Green River.

There's alot of this type of driving through Poison Springs Canyon.



Before heading back to Colorado, a few of us decided to check out Crystal Geyser which is southeast of Green River. It did not go off while we were there but I have attached a video link.

Thank ya ! I'd like to have gotten more but there were some long expanses where we were hauling butt and farting around with pics was not on the agenda. I decided not to mess with the Rebel much on this trip so these are all from the Canon point and shoot. If I ever really learn how to use the DSLR's capabilities it will be a miracle.

Nice work James. Love the pictures. Funny how all those clumps of red mud washed off driving home in the rain and snow - a bit disappointing in a way....
