Forum member Mike Coke has made a very generous offer for the folks planning to be at Moab this year. If anyone wants to participate, please respond to this topic and Mike will be able to gauge the interest level.
Thought I would first tell you all a little about myself.
The Name is Mike & I retired from the National Park Sevice after being a Park Ranger for 13 years.
I worked in Death Valley (Scottys Castle, Gulf Islands National Seashore (Fort Pickens), Everglads NP (Shark Valley), San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, Hovenweep NM.
My last Park was Hovenweep NM about 120 miles south of Moab.
What I was wondering is would anyone be interested in going on a day trip to Hovenweep & all og the out lying areas of the Park on one of the Rally days?
Here is a little info it would take about 2 hours to drive down to Hovenweep & 2 hours to get back to Moab.
Time there would depend on how much we do there. To visit the main area Square Tower Unit it woud take about 1.5 - 2 hours if we stoped at the Visitors Center & walked the 2 mile loop trail to see all the ruins.
There are 3 outlying units all with different styles of ruins. I would recomend we also stop & see them.
I thing the total trip would be 9 hours. $ driving & 5 to see everything.
Let me know what you all thing.
Here is the link to Hovenweep's web site:
