April 17, 2016 - Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab Utah

Don on Big Chief Trail

We were hoping for a little less wind today.  We drove up to Deadhorse State Park, 6,000 feet, to the visitor center, where the wind was still howling.  Thankfully, the sun was starting to peek thru the clouds.  But, it was a chilly 43 degrees with a strong wind.

Headed up Intrepid to Great Pyramid to Big Chief.  Then bombed back down Raven to the parking lot, to find Lori, who was touring the Green Circle rated trails on her own.  Had some coffees and snacks outside the visitor center, and headed out Prickly Pear, left side of the loop, to Twisted Tree to whip tail.  We skipped the part of Whiptail that went out onto the point.  Took Whiptail to Prickly Pear and headed back to the car.  16.26 miles
