Hi all,

Went on my first back country trip (Colorado Rockies) last summer and I've been itching to go back ever since. I'm planning on a few days in the Needles in April. Found this site while researching that area. Looks like a fun and knowledgeable bunch here. I've enjoyed reading all the trip reports for Southern Utah.

A few days in the Needles? Backpacking or hiking from a base camp?

Welcome.

A little of both I suppose. We're staying one night in Big Springs Canyon and the next couple of nights in Elephant Canyon. I imagine we'll day hike out of EC3 for a couple of days.

What week are you going? I'll be there in April too from the 16th to 21st and I'm staying at EC3 on the 19th.

And welcome!

@Craiger We`ve been to the Colorado Rockies last year as well, camping three nights in Aspenglen CG.
And now we are planning Needles for June as well, hiking Salt Creek. Funny :).
Are you going to Druid Arch? Great photo location!

Druid arch is definitely on my must see list when I'm there. That and the Joint Trail and Chesler Park loop.
