    Seems like a good guess, so I'll throw out Ticaboo Canyon. I really want to walk Fourmile in 2017.

    @Nick and I have had our eye on that canyon. Looks better than expected. Greater Glenn Canyon is so full of great backpacking, but I'll try to keep that to myself ;)

    Taken from the same spot as the first photo--probably a dead giveaway. Perhaps not many people see the cabin from the road, but I'm sure many BCP members have been through here.

    Indian Creek it is! I'm not sure if the cabin in my photo has a name, but it's just across Highway 211 from the mouth of Donnelly Canyon.

    I've never seen it in snow but it sure is pretty.

    This might be a tough one but I'll give regular hints. I've shown this to Nick so he doesn't get to play. cave.JPG Cave1.JPG The Cave.JPG

    You can walk upright almost all the way to the back.

    I saw that post so I know exactly where this is, so I won't play either, but thanks for sharing it! There are a couple of corrals southeast of there that I wanna check out next time I go there. I swore I'd never go back, but that was before I owned a Jeep. :D

    I'm eager to share it because I want to show what is a short walk from a very popular campsite in the Maze area. That alcove was an "official" campsite up until 1981. I spent many a rainy trip holed up in there before they closed that road..

    OK, it's in The Maze area of Canyonlands NP.

    OK, time is up. I was hoping some old timers would recognize this.

    Up until 1981 there were two ways to get from Standing Rock to the Doll House. The road forked just to the east of Standing Rock. The right fork went straight east to the Doll House. The left fork went to Chimney Rock and then back to join the right fork. This formed an equilateral triangle approx 1 mile per side. The right fork was closed sometime before 1982. The cave/alcove shown was a designated campsite. If you find yourself at Standing Rock the 15 minute hike on the right fork is worth it.
