We will finish this great day back at basecamp, cooking dinner and enjoying a nice fireside chat about the days journey. The cool thing is, we are just beginning. We still have two more days of exploration.
Friday, Sept 23: This is a favorite among visitors in this area that want to experience all the terrain types that Moab has to offer. This is a full day loop. We will start off with a quick jaunt to see the Fisher Towers, then take on the Onion Creek Canyon trail.

Another evening of cooking at basecamp, enjoying the fire and telling stories. The perfect way to end a great day of exploring!
