4/11 - Blue John Canyon
Monday morning, early, Marshal, Megan, Tyler, and I get in the Maule and take a scenic flight over the Dirty Devil and my slot canyon. The air is smooth as silk, a very nice change from the past couple days of jostling. Marshal has identified the slot as Blue John, which is described in a guide book. There are some very landable dirt roads near the canyon.
Marshal drives up to Green River to pick up Jeff. Like me, Jeff has been coming to Utah for years, often with Marshal. For some reason this is the first time we've been here together.
The kids arrive after dark They are a day behind. One car has been left to have it's engine replaced and a suburban has been rented in it's place. The other requires a trip back to Green River tomorrow for more work. It has been an epic trip for them but they are finally in southern Utah.
We spend, now, my 3rd night at the Hanksville airport.
