Boondocking in the Dominguez-Escalante Conservation Area

Wednesday, June 19

Displaced from Hotchkiss about 35 miles west to the Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area.

I turned off of US 50 onto Escalante Canyon Road and using Yagi, found a spot after a couple of tries at different portions of this BLM area.

Not a bad spot, no trees  but isolation is achieved and you can't hear the noise from the highway.

Spent the rest of the day working, doing a short ride during lunch to explore the nearby trails and the Dominguez Rim:

The afternoon proved quite warm, hitting 89°F (31.6°C) at the high point.  The clouds overhead would block the blazing sun at times but it was still quite warm.  There was a breeze blowing from the west though and while gusty at times, it helped keep me cool in the RV when not outside doing something.

The sunset started a bit weak but blossomed quite nicely as the sun disappeared under the horizon:

The rim shots look pretty nice. As do the sunsets.

Thanks RichardM, it’s not a bad spot for boondocking....though it can get windy where I camped!
