2019-159 HR in UT/CO
Outside Monticello, Utah
Good guess, south of there a bit. Near Cedarville on Surprise Valley rd. Definitely more cows than people in that area. Didn’t stop at any hot water this time but there is a lot around there.Lemme guess: somewhere on 140, around Adel? I ended up driving through a herd (very slowly) as they were driving them several miles to a paddock for shipping (I guess). I love south and eastern Oregon. Vast views, hot springs, high desert. Cowboys (of all genders). It has become crowded over the last 40 years... Used to be only the occasional cowboy at the springs, now a dozen or more campers, SUVs, etc. each night. Those dang boomers and their kids.
That trail looks like it would be more fun on a dirt bike than hiking.Twenty minutes and 450 ft toward Guadalupe Peak. One of my favorite hikes. Wind nearly blew us over at the top, but most of the trail was protected.
Van is down left from tree.

Maybe this is why cahaac said last year he doesn’t like this trail.
