Desperately Seeking Sandstone
- Jan 21, 2012
I have a backpack into Grand Gulch from Bullet Canyon to Kane Gulch planned for Friday - Sunday with a couple of friends. I'm concerned about the springs freezing since the temps at night are supposed to drop into the low to mid 20's. I've never backpacked in temperatures quite that cold before. I'm hoping that someone who's familiar with Grand Gulch, like gnwatts, or really anyone who's backpacked in temps that low, can tell me whether that is likely to happen or not. The temps are supposed to rise to the low to mid 50's during the day. We really want to make this happen, but have no desire to find ourselves down there without access to water. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
