Though it's much more modest than Nick's epic adventure. I think I'll do my first solo backpack (I sure have come a long way since this weekend when I was wondering if I was too old for this) in Canyonlands. Probably just an overnighter because I'm a lightweight. My dream is to take an amazing photograph in Canyonlands without crowds around me. 1. Lathrop Trail goes down to the river, and while you have to camp 4 miles up I was thinking of walking down to the river at dawn. Does anyone know if the scenery is dramatic (and worth the hike in the dark)? 2. I was also thinking of camping at Murphy Overlook-can you even do that? 3. Last, I was looking at the map of White Rim Overlook Road by Hardscrabble camps. There's a tempting trail that leads to an overlook of the bend in the Green River. What's the drive like on the White Rim Road between Taylor Canyon and Hardscrabble camps? Can I get up to that overlook trail?
