2011 Rainbow Bridge Spectacular

Post by PaleoRob »

Another one of those "you asked for it, now you'll get it" deals.
Rainbow Bridge via Redbud Pass. New information added 3/26/11.
Okay, so here's the deal. 13 miles from Rainbow Lodge to Rainbow Bridge. Hit the trail on the 2nd. Spend the first day hiking to First Water, about 8 miles in. Second day we'll head down to the bridge and back to camp as a dayhike. On the 4th, we'll hike back to our trucks. We'd meet in Page early on the 2nd - details to be PMed to participants. Friday night gathering and pre-hike meet and greet recommended.
Cost: Navajo Nation hiking permit= $5/day/person. Navajo Nation camping permit = $5/person/night. Total = $25.
Early April can get very cold, and there still remains the possibility of a snowstorm, so plans might be canceled or changed depending on weather. Obviously that will be discussed as the date gets closer.

Yeah, I talked to him last night. Winger won't be making it out, unfortunately. Looks like we'll have 5: Randal, myself, Toad, Larry, and a local friend who's not on the site, Clanton.

Larry, didn't you know? Rob only owns one set of clothing! With your deeply kind and charitable nature, I am sure you will be willing to bring along some pants and a shirt to donate to the cause. :D
