Do a drive by and say hi, Chris! I'm planning on going and could be there as early as 5ish from SLC. Plenty of daylight to get a quick pitch in. Elephant Rock just across the road!

I'll be sussing out campsite #20 tonight m'self (friends from Montana there). If anyone's around, stop and say "howdy".

So looking forward to this. Already have the schedule arranged, now I gotta get tires on the car, maybe struts too. (Poor thing, at 21, falling apart!)

I'd be great to see MightyHiker, and meet my near-neighbors Fritz & Heidi.

I wonder if we will cook or freeze while there? That place seems quite unpredictable weather wise!

We climbed hard on Tuesday morning and early afternoon (I'm a mass of bruises and sore muscles), then took a shower and checked phone & emails in Almo and climbed again late afternoon.

I lost the climbing camera for the day and just accepted "Donini-climbing-punishment."

Hey Crimpergirl, did you bring Pente the cat to the base routes of El Cap a bunch of years ago? I remember seeing a cat there about 12 or so years ago chilling at El Cap with it's owners and thought it was really funny.

Relic - not Pente - she's only about 8 years old. Her predecessor Puma was also a traveling rock climbing cat (having the only Feline Ascent of a dome in Tuolumne. Pente got tooled on and attempted ascent in Tuolumne though on a leash). I'll have to ask BrassNuts about Puma in Yosemite. She was B.C. (before Crimpergirl). :)

We will toast you at the meet & greet!

Best wishes for quick-healing!

Sorry you can't make it to the party!

I will be visiting "the city" off and on for the next two weeks!

Anyone else around in mid to late June?

Seth & Jeebus will be there next week. I will be there for the weekend, that's my plan, anywho. I have a mostly black 2 door jeep Cherokee.
So there!

Supposed to be quite windy today & tomorrow at City of Rocks with top gusts up to 40mph. We have delayed our visit by a day, but we will see how windy it is tomorrow.

Temps will be real pleasant though!

Looking east toward Steinfeld's Dome.  Nice light!

Uhhh...."thread drift?"

I may not be able to make the Greet and Meet after all, due to very dry and soon-to-be-hot weather; I need to get on with my haying operation.

This isn't a firm cancellation, but a thought that's been on my mind.
