Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, March 2004

Jonathan, Chris, and Bob camped in Canyonlands and saw lots of good stuff, while all fighting a virus. We started in the southeast part of Canyonlands, the Needles district. Jon and Bob took a couple of excellent hikes while Chris was under the weather. We proceeded north to Island in the Sky, where it was Jon's turn to suffer. We spent an amazing couple of hours at Grandview, which more than lived up to its name. We spent our last day at Arches National Park, taking some good hikes, especially the long one up to Delicate Arch. Late March is the perfect time to be in this area, which is cold and windy in the depths of winter and unspeakably hot in the summer.
