Every time i come here i am overwhelmed by it. Left home on tues. morning got to wildrose about 4AM. what a sight everything for as far as i could see was white. all the way through emmigrant cyn.
went across the valley and hiked fall cyn. to the second fall ran into a group of 20 kids and one adult loaded with backpacks wondering how much water was running in the creek? Dont people plan these things out there is no creek. But he didnt beleave me oh well maybe they will find one. Next day hiked trail cyn. I saw two people the whole day they were camping there for about a week thanks for the dinner barbara. Sat up there and just watched the bats and the moon come up through the storm clouds. next day i camped up in hanapah never been there before what an incradable place. i have never seen such a massive wash 40 feet high on both sides and about a mile across. Did the longest hike i have ever done in DV. went from the head all the way to telescope and back lots off snow the creek area was thick with brush and hard to get throgh saw some petroglifs.
I am not a hermit but i do love the soitude this park brings me the two days i was up there i saw 1 person.
well enjoy and respect this place.
