(INSERT GAIA MAP)
Day started off with a parts run to O'Reillys, then finding a camping spot. Big Bend Campground (BLM) along Route 128. Spectacular.
I carry a pretty complete tool kit in the Jeep.
Jet boat going by on the Colorado
I sleep in the back of the Jeep. No bugs out here -- didn't put in my screens, and indeed left the rear wide open at this campsite.
Time to run into town for tacos from Giliberto's and an official plug for the brakes...
That afternoon it was lightly sprinkling; weather is different out there. Radar like this would have been rain in New England; I think the air was so dry most of it was evaporating before getting to the ground.
Never the less we figured we'd take a drive up to Arches for the photographic "golden hour."
