    Default MOAB! Last week of October



    Moab! Without highways. The last week of October I want to go from Grand Junction into Moab via the desert and crossing the Dolores River on Monday or tuesday, do a couple of Moab classics like Fins n' Things, Seven Mile Rim and Dome Plateau, maybe some hiking, then leave via Onion Creek / John Brown Canyon on Thursday or Friday before the crowds arrive. It's a quiet time in Moab, relatively, and the weather should be great.

    If I understand this map correctly there is dispersed camping allowed in the Dome Plateau area? I'm somewhat hesitant to camp in the established campsites in moab, considering dispersed or might just do 2 or 3 nights at a hotel.

    https://www.blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/fi...oabCamping.pdf

    This is the meetup spot in Colorado, might as well start with a bang: (get it?)



    It's a lot like Moab. he gets to the play area at about 1 min:

    Late October should be good time for camping. Could always camp up in the La Sal forest (dispersed) as well.

    You can't dispersed camp within 20 miles of Moab, Dewey Bridge is 32.4 miles from Moab according to google maps. This map is pretty clear, looks like anywhere up by Top of the World, Dome Plateau, is fair game. I'm going to hold off deciding on camping or hotel based on weather when the time comes. Dates and trails and such are still flexible.

    If not camping I would have considered this. Bummer, but will keep watching in case things change.

    No worries, Tom, we can all go together through the desert and split up for the night once in Moab. I'm still strongly considering a hotel, might even make a refundable reservation today for two nights just to have it. I really like having a shower in Moab! We don't have to be joined at the hip when we're there either, just plan for trail meetups when we want to and for the trek back to CO, or just leave Moab whenever / however anyone wants. It's all flexible and there's no reason we can't have people doing different things.

    "I really like having a shower in Moab!"

    This is why I carried 6 extra gallons of water in May and brought a battery-powered shower and a shower tent. It was glorious.

    Moab is too booked up and expensive for the week of the 10th so I'm going to explore the desert between Grand Junction and Moab in the Dolores Triangle area on the 11th and 12th instead and will be in Grand Junction later that week as well. If anyone is interested in exploring the area PM me.
