Everyone is invited to “meet up” in the town of Green River. It will be a four day weekend event starting Thursday, September 25 through Monday the 29, 2014. Come early, stay late, or visit for just 1 or 2 days.
This will be the sixth Meet-Up in southern Utah in five years. Originally the attendees were the major southern Utah posters to TA but since then we have TA posters from other states that want to join us and enjoy the area with like-minded folks. Everyone is invited.
There is much to see and do in the area surrounding the town of Green River:
Explore the San Rafael Reef and San Rafael Swell; known by locals as “The Swell”.
Hike through narrow slot canyons including Little Wild Horse Canyon.
Raft on the Green River.
Visit the John Wesley Powell Museum.
Investigate the mysterious cold water Crystal Geyser.
Golf at the State Park.
Enjoy scenic drives into the back-country. Maybe go to the Hans Flat Ranger Station and peek into the Maze.
Join the Mountain Bike Festival in “The Swell”.
Canyoneering with an outfitter/guide in the Dirty Devil or Robbers Roost.
Discover Native American rock art including the famous Black Dragon, Nine Mile Canyon, Buck Horn Wash, and the infamous Horseshoe Canyon section of Canyonlands National Park.
There are 81 natural arches in the area and we have a list of the names and locations. How many will we find?
Come face-to-face with hoodoos in Goblin Valley State Park.
The delicious Green River melons will be in season.
And, for the first time, a “no activity” get-together to relax and become better acquainted…perhaps at the city park.
The town of Green River is very small but does have gas stations, a market and several places to eat. Lodging available includes many motels plus camping.
We will also have group dinners and happy hours.
I’m starting this thread so everyone has a place to chime in, chatter, and contribute ideas and opinions about all the fun we’re going to have.
OhioHick has already set up a website for our planning and several of us have joined in the forums there. Here it is:
What do YOU think? Everyone is invited. Do you want to join us?
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
