The public is welcome to attend a meeting about an upcoming trip to Utah’s Capitol Reef, hosted by the Los Alamos Mountaineers.
The meeting, explaining the trip and event announcements will be at 7:30 p.m., May 15 in the Great Room at Fuller Lodge. Happy Canyon, in the Robbers Roost country, will also be one of the wild places covered.
The May program of the Mountaineers will follow the meeting.
Between Utah’s more famous and most visited national parks lies a spectacular array of natural features that invite adventure and appreciation.
Centered on the less known Capitol Reef National Park, this area offers challenging slot canyons, high mountains, intriguing rock art; and the ideal antidote for stress, traffic jams, and 24/7 communication: true solitude.
Public land and minimal bureaucracy due to low visitation pressure combine to encourage backcountry exploration.
The May program of the Los Alamos Mountaineers, by Rick and Lynne Stinchfield, will cover this remote region.
Because slot canyons and narrows offer the best mix of beauty, physical tests and the unknown, the program will cover several, including at least one in Capitol Reef, the San Rafael Swell, the Dirty Devil River region, the Little Rockies area and perhaps in the Circle Cliffs.
