    Thank you for clarifying what this thread is about; also, for clarification on what Bogley is and is not.

    It seems that this thread is having trouble deciding what it wants to be. Is it a bitch session regarding an organization that most people don't belong to; or, is it an airing of facts so that people...

    Your group was one of a kind-- biggest group, most newbies, most 'new to you' canyons, in the dark. I don't think anyone went at night. You also provided the most enthusiasm. If we do it again, we...

    Byron,
    Thanks for considering carefully your decision and for sharing your reasoning to disclose the 'shortcut' to the known Hall's Creek canyons. It is such a tough route in from the top when...

    The crossing of Hansen from Mile Post 32-ish on 276 is still pretty rough. With the storms from last week, it would be better to head in from MP 25.5-ish of 276 and take the road that goes past...
