After driving 100+ miles from our previous campsite in The Maze we had hopes for respite from the high winds, and for just the amount of time it took us to set up camp it appeared we had been successful. But within minutes the winds became every bit as strong as what we had left.

The terrain at the campsite was too hard for stakes so we unloaded anything of significant weight to hold the tents on one side while tying them to the Jeep on the windward side. That worked for maybe half the night... until the wind changed. And by morning the tent, including me inside was 5 feet closer to the Jeep. Tracey's tent was smaller and closer to the ground so it fared a bit better.

The saving grace was the wind died down just long enough for us to pack up and head for Cedar Mesa. But not before taking in the scenic view around us.
