How big was that Cave
Posted By: Jimbo, 09-28-2009, 05:43 PM

To give you a better prospective on the size of one of the caves we were in here is a picture. The person at the back the the shot is Grant's wife Ann. This was huge and one tough exposure. JIM

This should help explain it better Steve: the Burr Trail from Boulder, UT along HWY 12 to the Capitol Reef Park boundary is paved. It's another 19.8 miles before you reach the park boundary- then the pavement ends...

On the second workshop weekend, I did the full loop down the Burr Trail road switchback and headed north on Notom-Bullfrog road through Capitol Reef National Park. That is some switchback!!! I was in 1st gear all the way down driving a Jeep... took a few photos of it too...

Cheers,
Marc

Come on.....share!

please?

Soon Grant, I promise! I've barely touched the images I have dumped off the memory cards.

You didn't hear about the pre-second workshop freak accident either... it was not pleasant, but healing well now... Will send you a PM if needed.

Cheers,
Marc

Great, now I am Yoda...

I can see it now: "Jim, feel the force and let it become one with you... your landscape imagery will go up a notch..." "Don't get in front of Dave's fisheye lens or it will be posted on the internet..."

The eye is doing much, much better! It's extremely sensitive to anything floating in the air: dust, etc. and even food cooking! All in all, much better than Wed. night post trauma and sitting in emerg for 3.5 hours under bright lights last week...

Thanks for the clarification Marc. Your description matches those I just read on the Web. My reaction was based on a sign that was posted at the junction in Boulder when I was through the area a few years back. The sign promised terrible consequences for any passenger car that would dare enter the trail. We were driving a rented Chrysler 300 and decided that the warning applied to us. If I had known that a spectacular slot canyon was just a few miles away on easy pavement, I probably would have taken the side trip.

Probably a good thing we didn't though. Our reservations for that night were at Gouldings's in Monument Valley and we were going via Torrey, Hanksville, and Mexican Hat. It was a long, long, long way. The funny thing was that later that day we talked to a couple who had braved the Burr Trail all the way to Bullfrog only to find that the ferry was not running. They had to detour on the 276 back to Highway 95 and go the long way around.

(Memo to self...got to go back to Boulder and see this stuff for myself...)

Things are good, but I am getting bored. I am getting some traction on the job search, but am thinking that maybe I need to do a two or three day road trip. There is new snow at Crater Lake and it is only about 6 hours away and I do have five rolls of Kodachrome left...

Steve I will let you know next time I'm down that way maybe we can get together.

Jimbo next time you head that way maybe we could make it a long weekend my kid is going to school in Portland and it doesn't take much to spur Ronda on to making a trip down.
