Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness 3/12/16


Recommended Posts

The weather report did not look good, but when you have permission to abandon your family for 3 nights to go visit the woods ...

I met JC at Beech Gap for what was planned to be an easy 3 nights, covering about 25 miles.The weather report called for a high chance rain most days and there was a threat of thunderstorms one of the days, but it wasn't looking like it would be too much rain. We hoped for lots of grey and a minimum amount of water (The NWS had forecast .1 - .25 inches overnight), didn't turn out that way.

Lots of rain and some equipment/user failures led to us bailing after the first night. Still a good trip, but a lot of driving for one night in the woods. One of these days I am going to "figure out" Slickrock :)
