Dec 15: Doran Loop - Odessa Canyon / Bismark Canyon

EDIT: added Dec 14: Weather report looks good. Will be meeting at Calico ghost town parking lot at 11am on Sat Dec 15. PM me if you want to go.


OK, let's try again. This would be a run around the Doran loop. We tried to organize this for Dec 1 and again for Dec 8 - got rained out both times. So let's shoot for Dec 15. Again, if it's rain free, I will be doing this run anyway.

All the info on the run and the previous attempt to get the run setup are located here.

I hope some one makes it out there with you Mark. It's a cool place people don't let Mir go by him self.

Re: Dec 15: Doran Loop - Odessa Canyon / Bismark Canyon

Ended up going with just one rig after all - but a nearly full rig...

My friend Alejandro took photos, but I don't have them yet. I'll post some up when I do. Here are some shots of the truck I took (parked near gatekeeper on Bismark - I don't have any action shots as I was driving):
