Heavy monsoon rains last evening kept us away from slots today. A trip to the Cowboy Camp(known locally) seemed in order. 4 X 4 on a good day, the occasional errosion of trails and mud made this an extended day. The Cowboy Camp is nothing more than an old line shack but the setting is something right out of a hollywood movie. They could shoot a western here without any expense for the setup. Some interesting graffiti in the cabin documented a visit about a year ago from the Arizona Rangers. Utah Junipers and huge fields of Sage conceal the cabin and you could easily stroll right by it. This trip included a five mile hike enjoying the higher elevations of the Grand Staircase. The route was Skutumpah Road to an unmarked Road between Park Wash and Bullrush Hollow on the South side of the Road. Pass 3 old cabins worth looking at in the first 3 miles on to Corral Canyon to a Y in the wash, take the right leg about another 1/2 mile and watch for first dual track off to the right. Keep an eye out for Butch Cassidy as it appears as if the Hole in the Wall Gang lived here. Continue on after backtracking and see the result of a huge rock slide on the right only about a 1/2 mile further south. The trail became to mud chocked to continue south so we backtracked to the Y and took it East through fantastic landscape to Sand Road took it to Park Wash on to Deer Springs Wash and Camp. You can easily follow these directions on a Garmin Mapsource Program. We had a flat, overheated(clogged radiator with mud) and were running out of daylight.....be prepared, saw no one else the entire day.
