I haven't seen much discussion on cruising Lake Powell this fall. There was a gathering most past years, on or around the third weekend in September. Anyone planning to go this year?

We have commitments during that week this year, but we are planning to be at Lake Powell in early October. Anyone going to Powell in October?

We launch from Bullfrog Bay on the upper end of the Lake.

Me & hopefully JoLee plan to be at Oak Canyon on Sept 28th & maybe a day or two before that too. We canít stay more than a few days into Oct due to a grandkids birthday. It sure would be good if you could start out a few days earlier than planned.

We intend to launch at Wahweap on or about 9/25. We can be at Oak Canyon on Sept 27 & 28. We need to take out on or about Oct 1.

It appears the lake elevation will be 20 some feet above where it was last year.

Iím going to work on Rob to convince him but weíll already have been out (San Juanís and Gulf Islands) for several weeks so itís hard to know if weíll be able to come. It would be fun to see everyone again.

We were in Defiance House last October. A major storm occurred two nights before and when we arrived at the trail much of the stream bed was washed out. There were 3 foot high hail drifts and lots of fallen logs and debris in the stream bed. We had a difficult time walking up the canyon to the ruins and during our visit the Chief Ranger arrived and was shocked by the damage done by the flash flood. On the walk out I followed the stream back down to the lake and near the delta I discovered that I was crotch deep in quick sand. Luckily I had my walking poles with me and I was barefoot and was able to turn around and get out. Judy was on the the other side on dry ground and was worried that all they would find was my hat after I sunk in the quicksand.

I hiked to Defiance House after the washout. It was a goat path with cairns marking what different people thought was the best path. None of the options were very good. Most people were turned back early because of a lack of proper footgear.

This MOSTLY looks to me like "solutions" in search of a problem...

Itís been very good weather. Last night some wind & a few clouds, but overall between 76 & 86 degrees for highs & lows in the fifties & sunny. From now to about mid Oct, I think is the best time of the year for here.

Iím sitting in the Kaboat again now just above the junction where the the San Juan comes in & the Kaboat is topside up Laughing It runs good here topping out at about 14 mph.

Jody & I checked Reflection on the way back from Oak Bay to Iceberg. My first time in that Canyon & neat to see with Jody saying it looks even better with the lake down more.

I had a wonderful 12 days on the lake with most of the time by myself. JoLee is still improving from her neck surgery & making progress with the arthritis, but still not up to extended days on the boat, so missed Lake Powell again this year. Great exploring on the Kaboat & made over a 100 miles doing just that. Also good to see Tony & Diana with their C-View again, as they have been to many of the same Gatherings on Lake Powell as we. Also always great to spend time with Jody & his dog Maggie. Jody & I along with Bill & his 23 Ranger Tug plan on cruising SE Alaska out of Skagway starting next May. The HunkyDory is now being made ready for winter & me already dreaming of being back in Alaska.

I posted some photos of the trip in my album.
