I spent last night sleeping in the Jeep at the Deadman Trailhead above Horseshoe Canyon. I hiked down the Deadman Trail and upstream in Horseshoe Canyon (with a side-trip up Bluejohn) and didn't find the rock art panel I was looking for. What I did find more than makes up for it, though.

I only need one more night in December to meet my goal of camping at least once per month, but I think I might actually try getting at least out once a week for the rest of the year.

@LarryBoy - congratulations! That's funny, we were so close to meeting you. I had planned to camp tonight at Devils garden (we are in Monticello now). But we just changed plans, we are leaving for Crested Butte now to see an old friend before we drive to Denver tomorrow.
FYI, I don't know if you have plans to backpack in the Needles, but we saw tons of water yesterday in the canyon on the trail to Druid Arch (mostly right before the steep final piece).

2 nights total, but the first two nights in 23 years, yeah :)

Nov 6, Deer Creek CG, off Burr trail. 23 F, that was cold! Hard to stay outside even with a campfire. Went to bed early.
Nov 7, Bullfrog CG, 39F, toasty warm at night. We arrived late, it was either Bulfrog or driving to Natural Bridges at night.

Bullfrog- no envelopes in the fee station...

Oh that's funny. Are you passing thru Moab today? Or headed east from Monticello? If you're headed through Moab and got a second, stop by and say hi!

Not sure if I'll make it to the Needles this fall... maybe Islands though. Looking forward to that Druid Arch TR! :)

Dang dude. That's a terrific year - so far! Congratulations!

Side note - I think 2018 is the best year, overall, for Bag Night Challenge yet. Great to see so many people getting out so often... and doing cool stuff.

2018 goal achieved!
That was a nice sunset. We were REAL close... over by Pine Tree Arch for sunset before wandering through more of Devil's garden in the dark on Saturday night (errr it just felt like night) evening, it was only 730pm when we left.

Didn't camp though... Was invited with a group and spent the weekend around Moab.

Oh that's funny. Are you passing thru Moab today? Or headed east from Monticello? If you're headed through Moab and got a second, stop by and say hi!

Not sure if I'll make it to the Needles this fall... maybe Islands though. Looking forward to that Druid Arch TR! :)
We were planning on heading through Moab and Devils garden today, but we changed plans early this morning. I would definitely have stopped to say hello!
We drove eastbound from Monticello- passing Ridgway state park now. Looks like there is a lot ot money here... we should be in Crested Butte in a few hours.
Stay warm @LarryBoy , I was so cold after hiking in Needles yesterday.
Hope you got off Cedar Mesa friday to Saturday night, temperatures were frigid! And that wind this morning was brutal in Monticello...

Yeah it's been a brutally cold week. Temps in the upper teens to mid 20's every night. Definitely a "double up the sleeping bags" time of year.
