4-Wheeling in the Lake Canyon area, March 2008
This Spring, we had a great Hole-in-the-Rock trail experience: we had six vehicles, 25 people and a difficult stretch of the trail to tackle…in 4-wheelers. The damage to the road caused by the rain waters in October of 2006 was amazing. We drove all the way to the Great Bend of the San Juan, seen from the top of Grey Mesa. We discovered that we had great cell phone service there, so we made a few calls home and then jumped back in our vehicles including a Hummer driven by Joseph Sorenson, a Jeep Rubicon, and two lifted Cherokees driven by Dave Fraden and Adam Lignell. Andrew Fitzpatrick brought up the rear with a lifted Jeep Wrangler with a winch. That night we cooked steak over coals with dutch oven potatoes, sautéed mushrooms and peach cobbler for dessert. No one ever goes hungry on our trips. The next day, rather than trying to make it to Cottonwood, we decided to go to Tower Ruins. In 1879, the last 4 scouts of the Hole-in-the-Rock pioneers had stayed there one night before Christmas. Grant Taylor
