Hi, all
Be sure to check out the journals that have been posted. The tech trailer worked great all day Friday, but things have slowed down some as the networking in the trailer has now stopped. We do have one connection going, so we will be getting some new entries online, albeit slowly.

We are currently at Calf Creek Campground, a beautiful spot nestled in the canyon carved by the creek of the same name. There is a lovely falls about 3 miles up the creek, I hope that I can make my way up there later today, perhaps.

This area is within the Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument. This monument, created by President Clinton, is beautiful and everchanging, with vistas and spires, canyons and overlooks at every turn. I will post some pictures later.

The folks around here are somewhat angry, though, at the area being named a National Monument, as they now have some of their activities restricted that they did not before. One lady was very upset that she could no longer ride her dirtbike wherever she wanted. It brings up the question about use and access on our Public Lands. The people in this area are stopping by our camp and letting us know what they think.

Keep tuned.
