Thursday: Upheaval Dome


Ak and Rim

Ak and Sign

We actually got up early!

The grey tone of the day was perfect -- we would be out in the open all day, and the cloud cover was highly appreciated. Note Ak's jacket; it lasted longer than I thought it would, but not very long.

The total hike would be something on the order of ten miles (a bit more, I think) mostly over flat terrain. There's only a 400 foot rise from the trailhead to the base of the "dome."

Note this is pretty normal looking canyonlands topography (the land, not the lady).
